Alright. With the plane ride finished, and our left over food boxed up we were ready to be on our way.
The rest of the evening was supposed to include a Play at a Sister School of where Kessabug works. We didn’t quite make it. Before leaving the airport she had mentioned that I may need to drive home. She went ahead and took the wheel, for about five minutes. Immediately after leaving we came upon a Walgreen’s. She got excited and pulled over.

I opted to stay in the car, for a few minutes. I decided that I needed something so I went in and met up with her. She was looking at the cold and flu medicines. She ended up getting Tylenol Cold Multi-Sympton Daytime (Citrus…and I think it included alcohol.) She also ended up with Zyrtec, to help with her runny nose…and something else that I can’t remember. As soon as we stepped out of the store she popped the top and downed a dose+. She gave me the keys and looked at the medicine to see if it included alcohol or not. It did, and she could feel it.
Luckily she set up her navigation on her phone for me…and helped a little herself. I only had to drive about 15-20 miles to get to her apartment, but that’s a bit different in Dallas Traffic. (Traffic is capitalized for a reason people.) For the most part I kept her phone on my lap, checking it every couple of minutes (maybe more like every 20 seconds or so). At one point in time I had to hit the brakes and the phone slid onto the floor board.
At this point in time Kessabug was reclined in the passenger seat…letting the medicine work its magic. I scoffed about the phone and she looked up at me.
She said “you want me to go down?”
“Here, I’ll go down for it.”
At which point she unbuckled her seat belt, stuck her head between my legs and retrieved the phone for me. Too bad there wasn’t another driver for me to look over at and wave to.
Anyway, she started giving me directions before the navigation thingy was…which actually helped, since I knew which lane to be in and such. We got to her place safe and sound…I suppose right on time. We walked in and she let the dogs out of their kennel, and then laid down on the floor. No blanket, no pillow. Good Medicine, huh? I laid down next to her for a while, maybe an hour…and then got up and played with the puppies.

At some point in time I ended up on the couch and maybe even asleep. This is when she checked the time and re-upped her medicine intake, and retrieved her Hello Kitty pillow and blanket…and laid back down on the floor.
The rest of the night was pretty much just this.
The next day was time for Church. There had been rumors going around that an Apostle (or two) were in the area and might pop up at a special Stake Conference. She had heard this, so we decided to attend her friend’s Stake Conference instead of her own Ward’s meetings. It was wonderful, and worth it.
Come to find out D. Todd Christofferson and Quentin L. Cook were both in the area, but neither made it to this particular Stake. One of them was at a Fort Worth Stake Conference and the other one was in Plano. We ended up hearing talks from newly called Elder Randy D. Funk, of the Seventy and from Elder Donald L. Hallstrom, who is a part of the Presidency of the Seventy. The talks were wonderful and very uplifting.
After dropping off her friend she took me for a little joy ride around the expensive homes of Dallas…but she was doing more. We ended up at the Dallas Temple. It was closed for renovations…it would be closed on Sunday anyway…but we got to get out and look at it from behind the fence. It was beautiful.

Such a good-looking Temple.
Our Sunday activities being over we headed back to her apartment. I loaded up all of my stuff and we then took the puppies for a walk around the complex. It was nice, only running into other puppies (really big pit bulls) a couple of times.
Since we had missed out on some of our Saturday Activities Kessabug decided to take me out for ice cream, before I had to leave. We ended up at Yogartland. Have you ever been here? It’s heavenly. As soon as you walk in a ginger-haired gal hands you three
shot glasses small paper cups, so you can taste test all the different flavors. I tried the Toasted Coconut…and two other that I don’t remember because the Toasted Coconut was the BEST THING EVER. They also offer about 30 different toppings. Kessabug made me look bad by getting all of the different kinds of fruit for hers. I opted for the cookie dough, snow caps and some sort of orange fruit that explodes in your mouth.

We sat outside in the perfect weather, enjoying our treats. Before, she had mentioned that a Cheesecake Factory was on the end of the road where we were sitting. I had never been…so she took me for some Cheesecake too. Omygoodness. We got a piece of the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake and a piece of the Mango Key Lime Cheesecake. They were both wonderful, but the chocolate one was the best, of course (and the one she ordered.) I’m just going to let her order all of my food for me from now on.
After that it was time to go home. It was a very long, sad ride home…so that is where this post will end.
