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 am...so grateful. The list just seems to get longer and more expensive each year. They got them clothes too....so 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!!
