What is up with all the family visits? The next big event was my mum coming to town. Her bff lives in the bay area and it was their high school reunion. My mom would be staying with me for a couple days before she stayed with her friend. My family had come to stay with me before…they drove all the way to SF to stay in my comfy little studio. That was good times. My mom expected to return to that quaint studio but little did she know that just a couple weeks earlier I had officially moved in with Nelli (gasp…). I was so nervous on when to tell her that it wasn’t until I had picked her up from the airport and I drove past my old apt’s exit did I have the courage to say that I had moved and had a new “roommate”. She exclaimed “NELLI?!?!” AND she said it in an excited tone. This was just the beginning of her surprising reactions.
