We are back in Phoenix after our typical summer in New York. Summer hasn't been the same since you left. This summer I worked virtually for a significant part of it, and it was only while I was driving back home that it dawned on me that it was my subconscious attempt to avoid you not being there physically with me. With Noam at camp all day and your siblings at sleepaway, it would have been just you and I taking on some crazy adventures...I don't really care to do anything without you there, not when that was our escape (Or attempt at one at least).
I drove 3 days straight with 2 nights in hotels to get home in record time. It was exhausting, but I just wanted to be home. The worst part about summer is the drive home. Noam and I dropped your sisters in Memphis to stay at friends for 5 days. They flew home yesterday, for the first time on flights by themselves. Laeya was old enough to not need to be an unaccompanied minor, and because Meena was between 8-12, she could go with Laeya. It worked out beautifully. I set them up with my Starbucks app and airline app and they were good to go.
Saturday night Aba and I went to a murder mystery dinner party. It was such a great time with great people. We were celebrating 2 friends' birthdays and it was great fun. I won the "Merry Maid" award (because I was a suspect as a maid). I also happened to win "dead last" in the guess for the murderer. The best part was how confident I was in that guess. My biggest fears of the night were having a character that required an accent and losing....both happened, and I handled it by laughing. (It didn't hurt that I had some yummy sangria).
I went to work Friday and got a lot done, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day when it comes to getting work completed. At least it was productive and it's always nice to be in the office with everyone. Thank you for bringing FBC into my life.
Anyway little girl, I love you! Have fun and be safe.
Until next time.
