We were all very excited to meet our new next door neighbors because Mrs. Culligan, the realtor who sold it for our old neighbor (who was so old that we never really bothered to speak to her), told us the family had children! How lovely for my three lil’ angles to have playmates right next door, and for me to have someone I can drop them off with from time to time! They have spent months gutting and getting the house ready to move into. Then on Saturday a moving van pulled up and right behind it a mini van. We were all peeking out the window, when Starling burst into tears. It was the Wozinski family from Starling and Merlin’s school, and poor Starling doesn’t like Stella Wozinski at all. Merlin seemed fine playing with Stella and her little sister Izzy, but I called him right in. It was too upsetting for Starling and he shouldn’t be playing with girls anyway.
Later that day, Starling set up a spot near the woodpile to sit with her telescope and play spy on the Wozinskis! What fun! She borrowed my cell phone so she could call all of her little friends and let them know about all of the stupid things Stella does! She is so creative.
Last time Röbert came home from the mountains he had bought me the coziest pajamas. He is so thoughtful, he had even removed all the tags and washed them for me. I think he meant to surprise me, but I found them in his suitcase when I was looking for his cell phone. I told him he was a silly man because they had the wrong letter monogrammed on them and I can’t return them if they have no tags (I know this for a fact, I tried it once). He is just so sweet and thoughtful!
