Meanwhile, Ericka and our niece, Nikki, have been having fun. I have to keep reminding them to get to bed before 4:00 in the morning. We're hoping to get out and do some stuff later in the week, though much of that hinges on how well I sleep as I'm the driver portion of the equation. It's tough to find things to do between 7:00 and 9:00 pm that are interesting to all involved.
But Nikki seems fairly satisfied to just hang out at the house with her favorite aunt. They chat endlessly and get involved in any number of projects. The dog has received a bath and much brushing. The cat was fitted with a harness for the prospect of a walk (were it not for the rain this afternoon). Many things have been downloaded from the 'net. Lists have been made.
We'll have the niece for another whole week so we're sure to actually do a thing or two.
