Soooo, I’m home on a Friday night. I am officially a loser. Mister and I are fanatical about date nights, but we already had one this week. And I had to run the last-day-of-school party gauntlet which meant dropping off and picking up all evening. Plus I did Activity Day. Plus I squeezed in swimming with the little kids. I was pretty much a great, selfless mom today. I will be making up for it tomorrow when I neglect my kids in order to paint the mudroom-to-be.
Another interesting and unrelated tidbit I haven’t mentioned is that my mother is moving down here at the end of the month. She currently lives in Salt Lake but will be moving to Austin since I have more grandchildren than the other people in my family combined.
If you don’t know my mother your reaction is probably something like, “wow, that’s so neat.” If you do know my mother your reaction is probably more like, “ooooooh, really? How are you doing with that?” My mother is, how shall I put this . . . eccentric. To the max. I’m not going to give you any more insight into my mother than that because she reads this blog every single day and will probably scold me for whatever I say.
I think it will be a lot of fun. Especially for the kids. They are so excited to have Boppie around. I will let you know how it works out but we’re going to have to develop some sort of code so that my mother doesn’t know we’re talking about her on this blog. Anyone have some ideas?
The two of us will be driving a moving van down at the end of the month. It will be 27 hours of the most boring scenery our fine country has to offer. I can already smell the awesome blog posts, though.
