That’s the theme for today. Hours and hours of driving.
I took the day off work so we could bring Hufflepuff to a town an hour and a half away to meet her boyfriend. The boyfriend she Skypes constantly but hadn’t met in person yet.
She got dressed very carefully, and wore some cute flats my mom had given her. The flats were a good idea. The dress was cute, and modest (she didn’t want to look slutty for his parents).
We met up at my friend S’s house, and we drove down with her and her family. My friend S has a sister who lives in the town, so it worked out beautifully. Her kids got to see their aunt, Hufflepuff got to meet her boyfriend, Gryffindor got to spend the day with her BFF L (S’s oldest daughter), and I got to spend the day with my friend. It was all good. (Ravenclaw wasn’t feeling well, so she stayed home with The Chosen One, who was working from home).
Hufflepuff’s boyfriend comes up to her shoulder. It’s cute. His parents are about that height, too. They seemed very nice, for the short amount of time I spent talking with them. Hufflepuff said his whole family was nice.
S was truly awesome and drove us around to 3 comic book shops so Gryffindor could hunt for something (which she didn’t find, but she did find some other cool stuff). And then we all watched Frozen. Funnily enough Hufflepuff and her boyfriend watched Frozen, too, but they watched it alone rather than in a room with little kids.
Other than all the driving (which is annoying) it was a fun day. I’m glad we could make it happen. And I’m incredibly grateful that S was willing to drive!
