Today’s Fortune: Your curious nature will take you someplace special.
Wow! Confucious is sure right about that one! Yesterday, my curious nature (and my Mom) took us to Wal-Mart. We had to get my brother’s oil changed in his car. He is letting us drive it to Ashevegas, which is where my curious nature will take us tomorrow. That way, we don’t have to go all the way back to the airport to rent a car. That will save us lots of time. His car is fun to ride in, but it is a long way to Ashevegas. I think it will not be as exciting as our airplane rides were.
We had to spend a long time in Wal-Mart, which made me so happy! I heart Wal-Mart! Mom did not look like she was having a very good time, because we didn’t really need to buy anything, and it took an hour to get the oil changed. We wandered around for quite a while, and found the best thing ever!! John Deere Tractor snacks!! See why I heart Wal-Mart?
We are enjoying our trip, but from a monkey fun perspective, it has been kind of boring so far. I really love my brother, but he is at work all day, so Mom just visits with Adrienne. She is my brother’s wife, which is called a “Sister-In-Law”. She is very cute and sweet, and she will be having a baby in October. It will be our second grandbaby. Our first grandbaby, Lily, lives in Omaha with my oldest brother and sister-in-law. We will be going to see them in a couple of weeks.
Mom started a blanket for the new baby yesterday, and has spent most of her time working on it since. She finished it this morning. It is very soft. She made it out of Muench Big Baby yarn, which we picked out several weeks ago. It is aqua and yellow, because we don’t know yet if this baby is a boy or a girl. Mom let me test out the new blanket. It is pretty good, but I don’t like it as much as my John Deere Tractor blanket. I think a baby should like it just fine, though.
Tomorrow is the big day! That is when we get to drive to Ashevegas and meet the Tractor Girls! We have special surprises for each one of them, and we have a super-secret-sock monkey mission to take care of before we meet up with them tomorrow afternoon! I will get to meet lots of new sock monkeys tomorrow, and I will get to see ValenTina again, too. Sassy will be going home with Lindsey, who is the next TSM hostess on our list. That will save postage, and Sassy won’t have to be all crammed into a box to travel by Priority Mail.
I will miss Sassy. She has been fun to have around. We will be without a visiting monkey at least until we return home. I hope Sister Mary Monkeypants makes it to our house soon.
The very very very best part of all is, I get to see my darling Dharma again tomorrow!!! I can hardly wait! I think I will wear my new pirate eyepatch and see if she recognizes me.
