Mommy & Elayna 2010
"Hi, Mommy! I miss you too. The wildest thing happened. I rode a camel! And as soon as I got off, the guy who owned them dragged me to a stand, wrapped a scarf around my head, and put me on the *other* camel! We wound up buying the scarf. Then we went to the Dead Sea. It was impossible for me to stand...my legs kept floating out from under me. But then we went to the pool, which was very refreshing. I hope your day is as fun as mine was!"

Hee. Oh, baby, of course you bought the scarf, because the camel owner pegged your grandparents as marks the minute he saw you guys. (My parents can be upsold anything. It's bewildering.)

"Which was very refreshing" just cracked me up.

Her Gchats are more Elayna-ish and less traveloguey, but I'm guessing she's trying to save money by hypercompressing her texts (internet's not working where they are) and is quite aware that anything she sends via Grandma's phone (she left hers here) can and will be read by Grandma.

My sister
Will be going home today, after a night under observation. She says "It's not perfect but I guess they feel it's stable." Which doesn't really make me stop worrying. My aunt and uncle will be coming down from North Florida to look after her, at least. But yes, after last night's additional procedure, she's... stable enough, I guess?

Hey, the next time they're in town and you don't know what to do with them, take your parents to the yarn store. ;)

Also, holding good energy for your sister.

You know? I think I will. :) Bonus points for Mom never having done anything crafty in her life and so being unduly impressed with the fact that I can make things, period...

I look forward to reading about Elayna's take on things. I'm glad that she is enjoying her adventure. (What a crack-up.)

Best wishes sent your sister's way.

It sounds like Elayna is having fun. :) And we're still thinking of your sister.

If that were true, they would have bought the camel. :)
