Worn Out

This week has been a busy one for me and I'm tired! My mom, step dad, and grandma came over on Tuesday night and spent the night. I cooked a big meal for them, which I enjoy doing, but it wore me out. I fixed a turkey and the fixin's as though it were Thanksgiving, but man, was it all good!! Gran has stayed with me since Tuesday. She hasn't ever been over to spend an extended period of time with me and we've really had a good time. I enjoy her being here and helping her do things. She's really helped me, too. Like today, she helped me clean my house for a Mary Kay party I had this afternoon. I don't know what it is, but to have someone help clean my house just gives me warm fuzzies!! I LOVE IT!!! That, to me, is a true sign that someone cares. The only thing that is about to drive me crazy is that she talks constantly through any TV show I'm trying to watch. Last night, I was into the story on Without A Trace and she was telling me some story of some guy who "got him a bite to eat" and some other stuff I didn't really pay much attention to. For the love of Pete, wait til a COMMERCIAL!! However, we have had fun, so I can't complain too much. I'll take her back home tomorrow and life will get back to almost normal - except I'll have a cleaner house.

My Mother-in-law has the same talking-through-a-tv-show disease. There's just something about it she can't resist, so I know how irritating it can be. Just don't try to watch any movies with Grandma...stick to the house cleaning.

Ditto here but it's my mom. And she very well knows she's doing it! She'll be like "sorry, you go ahead watch your show" and 10 seconds later...gab gab gab!!! I should just record shows while she visits!
