My mom is flying in from Florida tomorrow.
I'm getting a stomach ache as I'm writing this.
What are all the possible things she will find at my house to worry about?
I have a checklist of things to do before she comes.
1-Hide the Buddha statue.
2-Put any offensive magazines away. I don't really think there are any around come to think of it.
3-Mow the yards.
4-Find her "things" When I say things I mean her soap that she uses, toothpaste, hair shampoo. She doesn't like ours so she leaves these items with us. I don't have a problem with this, but I haven't seen this bag since we did our insane ongoing move last year. Atlanta-Orlando-Norwalk-Peekskill. This bag could be ANYWHERE!
5-Mop kitchen and bathroom.
6-Go grocery shopping for things she likes. Prunes, instant coffee, creamer and bran to make muffins. She's 76 and needs these things and I'm compassionate about it. Besides I love the bran muffins too.
This trip has been planned for months and months. She actually had the ticket from last year but all of the hurricanes stopped her.
Now she is coming and it's good. Really. I'm a sort of the fall guy for my family and sacrificing a few weeks of sanity, so my mom doesn't worry about my sister.
By the way-she had a biopsy of her tumor and it is benign. Hooray we all say! Now her and her husband are off to a revivalist healing camp for a week. No comment.
I'll come back with updates. I'm still planning on my rogue mission to deface the Owen poster. I will take pictures after the fact.
