We're getting "Mom" all moved in. Mike's mom got here on Wednesday, her stuff arrived on Thursday, and we've been hitting it pretty hard ever since. It's beginning to look like someone actually lives there now, which is good. There are so many little things to do around the house that, when they are done, are going to make it look GREAT! She's got lots of good ideas about things she wants to do. Number one on the "handyman" list is to get rid of the BROWN, poop colored toilet in the master bathroom. It's really just scary. Now mind you, this house was built in the 70's. She has the same yellow sink that we have, which is livable. But that master toilet, and the BLUE one that's in the hall - yeah, they have GOT to go! Just a little updating on the rest of the place and we're in business.
And the fact that she's just literally around the corner from us is GREAT!! We've seen her every day since she's been here, but that's to be expected since we're helping her get settled. And she's already been able to babysit for me once for a couple hours!! How great is that?! The kids LOVE that Grandma is here! And we do too!!
