Tsui Woo CLOSING?! / $100, Israel, Rita, NEXUS and visa stuff
Conversed about Michelle, Eunice and Eddie, my $100 payment being half the amount needed (Mom seems to understand about my money issues), Uncle Eric / Darren having to be a doctor / Derek in real estate, Tsui Woo CLOSING this Sunday (what the?! / Alan and Auntie Eva told Mom - of course they're going to go there on Saturday for old times' sake!), Rita / the thrift shop, baby things, national parks / the Grand Canyon, Grandma being quiet because Jon wasn't there, READER'S DIGEST, Chrystal, Cindy going to Israel with Becky / dogs / iPod stuff. Later, we looked at pictures of Edwin's new baby (Rebecca Grace Lee), and discussed Auntie Susan's criticism and Karen Grace moving to get away at the U of T / Jane / Harmony's appearance at the baby shower / the baby pool / drinking or sucking from a bottle. It's surprising that Auntie Susan would talk to DAD about Caesarean sections and childbirth! I talked to Grandma about her Chinese magazine, high heels, and more. Everyone got things to take home: peanuts, socks, leftovers, tomatoes, cucumbers, VCR to DVD technology, mixed seafood, muffins, tapes, maps and travel guides, juice, and more.
Grandma (92 years old, knowing little English) on the St. Louis-San Jose hockey game: "Oh, this looks hard. Can you do this? [upon seeing a scramble with plenty of traffic at the net] Aiya! Are they going to put it in?!" How cute!
