Well, Wednesday, was positively exhausting. We got up at 3 a.m. to do some last minute cleaning and packing (which is 1 a.m. here) to make a 5 a.m. cab ride to the 7 a.m. flight. With the US and the suitcases, mom had 7 bags.
Thank goodness for the FF upgrade to 1st class! Abigail started whining so Mom snuck her under the blanket and the flight attendant actually BUSTED them. She said, "Is that your dog under the blanket?" HAHA! Abigail spent the rest of the trip in the bag. Wednesday nite I went to West Hollywood to meet Lisa for sushi and then came back to go to BED!
Yesterday Mom woke up early and was in the mood for dim sum and found a place with good reviews. Turns out it was 27 miles away! She drove to Monterey Park with a GPS that got her lost about half a dozen times on an empty tank of gas! One time in the 'hood.
Next on the agenda: Mom went to the Beverly Center to a boutique called DOGto pick up some gifts for us and our friends for a bark~becue on Sunday~very cool.
Then Mom got a mani pedi across the street and the ladies who worked there were all really nice. She also met a very kind girl who looked like Lucy Liu who just graduated from anesthesiology residency and said she could tell we weren't from around here. She gave us her number for a play date with her and her yorkie and tzu.
I dunno why she knew right away we were from out of town? Must've been our southern accent. Mom said yes, it was our first day in town. The girl said she came out here 4 years ago all by herself for residency from Colorado and didn't know anybody and that it was a hard town to get to know people if you weren't in "the business." She didn't know that Abigail now considers herself "in the business."
Then this morning Mom turned on the computer and the WEIRDEST thing happened. The Internet Explorer opened right up to our MLS listing, which we had never seen before! (Is our computer haunted)? How bittersweet that it looks so great now that we're gone. Hey, we wanna live there!
