Mom visit update

Because I know you're all waiting with bated breath. So far not too bad. I've managed to let the few fingernail scraping moments slide. My mother quit smoking a few months ago and it really does make her so much more pleasant to be around. But she still needs stuff to do. As I said in a comment below, she's folded clothes and done the dishes since she's been here. Sigh.

We went to Ikea and Lowe's this morning where we got materials for the great garden makeover. Hopefully, it will stop raining tomorrow so we can implement the plan. I'll have before and after shots tomorrow. We also got birdfeeders--very cute. It was actually fun shopping with her. And if it weren't for the rain, I think it would have been even more fun. We just didn't feel like running around and getting wet between stores.

We're going out to dinner tonight and, if the weather is nice, we'll have some friends over to cook out. Mr. Geeky is dying to cook out for some reason.

I hear the laughter of children. Mom duties call.
