I FINALLY talked to Sheri tonight - and she was SO nice. We talked for awhile too. I felt like I already knew her after Tony told me so much about her. What a sweetie. This whole family is turning out to be incredible. Of course I should have figured that, since Christy is so cool herself. I still want to get to Los Angeles next month to meet up with them - but that's looking less and less likely to happen - unless I can somehow get a vehicle between now and then. Or at least have access to a ride to the airport (and a ride back). I'm hoping all the extra work I've been doing will prove to Loni that I'm good for paying her back if she helps me get the car. She said she WOULD help.
I'm looking forward to getting to know these people even better as time goes on. Tony told me tonight that they now consider me a part of the family - and I thought that was very sweet. Like I said, they're really cool.
