Fun Day With My Friends
Got up a little earlier than normal today because I had to be at Sandi Owens's house at 8:30 to head up to Sunland where we will meet Judy Arbogast then head out to Ontario Mills Mall (about 70 miles from my home) to meet up with our friends Vicky Baskins and Elektra Genteel. We all worked together at Lockheed for many years. Vicky now lives in Hemet, CA so if we want to visit her, we have to meet her at the mall which is about half-way between where she lives and where we live. It's a day-long activity. I really hated leaving Hiker alone for so long. I always used to say that I never had the “mommy” gene but I have found that I have it with Hiker. I now know how mom's feel when their “babies” are away from them for a long period of time. I know Hiker sensed right away that I was going to leave her at home alone. She would just stare into my eyes and her ears were down. She was right by my side all morning. She also started bringing all of her toys to me to play. She hates for me to be out of her sight. Got home around 3:30 and I don't think I've ever seen Hiker more excited to see me. She jumped all over me and kept kissing me and then she sat down and started barking at me like she was bawling me out for leaving her for 7 hours. She was a very good girl...did not have any accidents while I was gone. Had a really nice time with my friends. We walked all around the mall, stopping at a few of the outlet stores and then sat in the food court and talked for about an hour before we got some food and had lunch. Was good to see all of them especially Vicky and Elektra because I had not seen them in about 3 or 4 years.
