Last Sunday night I was talking to my mom and she told me she'd be in Kansas City Monday morning. She asked if I wanted to drive in to see her. Where she was headed was about 35 minutes away. She lives 2 and a half hours away, so of course I did.
Monday morning I talked to my mom, then I talked to my brother while I was getting ready, and then talked to Hannah for the drive in. When I told her I was going to meet Grandma in Olathe, she pointed out it was probably close to her house and we should come over. I promised I'd mention it, but wasn't sure she'd go for it. But she did! The GPS said it was 13 minutes away so we headed over.
As we exit off the highway, my mom says "Oh, this is over by where Megan and Lindsay used to have apartments."
She was referring to a time many years ago - more than 10 I'm sure - when my sisters lived in an apartment complex and had adjacent apartments (they shared a back wall). As we got closer to Hannah's complex, she kept saying things like "I'm sure we're getting closer" and "I think it was right over there" and "It would have been that building in the back", each one exactly describing where we were headed. I told her about how the first time I had been there I felt sure I knew someone who had lived in that complex. I remembered following directions through those turns, and I remembered the weird street name. I thought about it every time I drove there but I could never place who it had been. I didn't even think of my sisters. But we called Lindsay and later talked to Megan and sure enough, that's where they lived! Lindsay had lived in the apartment next door to where Hannah lives now. How funny!
467 thousand people live in Kansas City, and all those girls ended up in that same complex. That's kinda trippy.
Lindsay told our mom, "Well, I was jealous you were going to see her apartment without me, but now it's not so bad because I already know what it looks like."
Life is fun sometimes.
Here we all are on Hannah's patio.
This should be an animated gif. If it's not animated, click it. It's fun.
There is something so awesome about hanging out with your mom, and the girl you're mom to. Especially when you're all adults. I really like it.
