All back to 'normal'

Yes, my parents have been gone for a little over 24 hours now and it's all back to normal in the house....especially the kids fighting. They were sooooo good while my parents were here and I swear, the minute they drove out the driveway the kids started to fight!! Oh well, I guess the important part was that they behaved while mom and dad were here...I just wish they always acted like that.

I always enjoy when my parents visit and this time it seemed to fly by. It was like one day they showed up and the next they left. I miss them already.

They took the kids shopping and got everything on their school supplies lists.....I could not believe it!! I was...and grateful. The list just seems to get longer and more expensive each year. They got them clothes all I have to buy is shoes for the boys and a hoodie for my daughter....such a relief!!

My mom, who has had a bad hip for a long time now...I'd say at least the last 15 years, from bursitis (sp?), is going to have hip replacement surgery, possibly in November. That upsets me because I am so far away I can't be there to take care of her. She says my dad is good at that stuff, and he really is, there's never been a doubt in my whole life how much they love each other, but I'm the daughter...I'm supposed to be there to help. I wish I didn't live so far away.

Well, I guess I'd better 'git' for now. I've been making something for The Crochet Dude and it has a deadline so I'd better get back to that....after a blueberry bagel for breakfast!!

Have a great day everyone!!

I know what you mean about the cost of supplies for school, seems the list get longer and longer every year, it costs me more to buy the supplies than it does to enroll him.
