My former students would often repeat this rhyme to each other when secrets were being told. It’s no fun to be left out, I agreed. But not all secrets turn out to be bad.
Apparently Brad and my little sister, Tori, have been conspiring behind my back for over a week as to how to make a surprise visit from Tori happen. She has a week off before her last tests of the semester, and she knew I’d been getting a bit antsy to make a LR trip. Last night the doorbell rang and I annoy-ed-ly (remember yesterday didn’t go as I had planned) went to answer it. I was a bit more than shocked to see her standing on the front steps. Huh!?!?!?! So she’s here for the week/weekend, and it’s a great break in the normalcy of mine and Nate’s regular week.
I could use 18 more weeks of surprise guests to make time go a bit faster between now and September! 🙂
