Armed with her degree, Lovely Step-Daughter Daughter left for Crazy Desert Town to find her fame and fortune. Or at least a job in her field.
And that she did, and she stuck it out, making the grade for lo, these long (and distant) years.
Even if eventually Dearest Sister came to rest (so to speak) in the same locale. And even if we received killer deals on lodging most places we stayed, Lovely Step Daughter was far from home, and though Wonderful Guy understands the need for independence and acquiring decision making skills and standing on ones own two feet? Well, we are glad an opportunity has come up that allows her to return closer to the home front. Three of the five will be within hollerin’ distant.
Dearest Sister and her kitties are saddened. Lovely Step Daughter was the primary kitty-sitter. And DSis thinks The Guy isn’t as likely to tote me the desert now that his little girl doesn’t live there anymore.
Well, Sister? We will have to meet elsewhere then, won’t we? Maybe without the fellas.
