I am cracking up. So…my Mom is definitely her Mother’s twin.
I had this idea to have this pic re-created with my Mom. This pic was taken of my Grandmother on the Vineyard in 2008.
Annnnd, this is our conversation:
ME: Mom, I have an idea. You know that pic of Mama? The one where she wearing red, that was taken on the Vineyard?
ME: While you are up there, we should have you take the pic, in the same place. I think Aunt Cheryl has the necklace and you can get a red sweater.
MOM: Hmmmm….that would be nice.
MOM: Wait…when was that pic taken?
MOM: That was the year before she died, right? She was 80?
MOM: HELL NO!!! Forget that idea!!! I’m 80, we ain’t RECREATING SHIT!!!
ME: ummm…well ok…how u doin?
MOM: I gotta go…I have lunch plans. Bye!
They are back!!!
I have two new best friends. There names are Alexa and Tito.
(If you get it …you get it.)
MOM: Dad will most likely be home Thursday.
ME: Yaay…we have a lot to do to get ready.
MOM: Yup…I need to practice.
ME: Practice?? Practice what?
MOM: His legs are weak….so I am gonna give him lap dances.
We have ramps that must be built, appointments to schedule and she is stretching like she is preparing for the final Track and Field Olympics
HELLLLLLLLLLLLLP!!!! and I repeat HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLP!!!!
The thoughts that are currently racing through my head…
What did we do when we were younger that made things easier??
For example…why do I have to get up at 5:30 am, just to have enough time to get ready for work? And, why do I have to go to bed at 10:30 pm, just to be able to get up at 5:30 am?
And, why do I have to START getting ready at 8:30 pm, in order to go to bed at 10:30 pm? Why does it take me 2 hours just to GET READY for bed?
Between getting ready for bed and getting ready for the day, I’m exhausted!!!
