Yep, she's here...

She meaning my cousin Nicki. I got a surprise for my Memorial Day -- a phone call saying I needed to get to the airport because someone was there waiting for me. At first I thought it was my mother but then I realized who it was.
Nicki held her outstretched arms out to greet me. "Look at you, just as I left."
I shook my head. "Nicki, it's only been a month and a half."
"Still too long," she said.
The real surprise, though, was Adam. He's already a full head taller than either Nicki or me. And he's only ten. He has Nicki's hair color but brown lost-puppy-dog eyes. Something tells me he's gonna be a cute one when he gets older.
I have finals this week so I probably won't get to spend much time with her. And I just found out both Harriet and Kristy have to go to summer school. What a bummer.
And I feel worse because I won't be around to help them with their work because I'll be out traveling.
We can't do too much until after finals, I've got to go hit the books. Later.
