Whew, busy weekend! My mother flew in late Friday night. My nephew wasn't sure about attempting to drive in the dark for the first time so I drove but half way to the airport he decided that he could do it since there were very few cars out on the road. He drove the remaining 15 minutes and commented on how hard it was to see the lines on the street. He was drifting in the lane a bit but luckily we weren't mistaken for a drunk driver. After gathering my mother and her luggage, we all went to sleep since it was almost 11pm.
The next day I had a headache (I blame the weather change) and my mother had a headache too from the long trip. In the afternoon, my nephew and I dropped off a box of baby clothes for a friend. I wanted to buy a couple of outfits for her newborn but at $11-$15 a piece, I just couldn't spend the money. I ended up buying a large lot of baby clothes on ebay and they all looked brand new. She was thrilled and there is enough to share or sell for a bigger size in a few months. After that we stopped by Culver's for lunch. I bought half price gift cards online so our lunch was cheap. Next stop, Kohl's for black and khaki pants and a shirt for the nephew. The cashier was shocked that I did not want to sign up for a Kohl's card to get $30 off my purchase. I shop at Kohl's maybe once every 5 years. I definitely don't need another credit card. Then we went to Sprouts to buy grass fed beef and organic things for mother. Then Safeway for the other groceries Finally done and my nephew drove home. Next, my nephew did his homework while I tried to keep him on task. Finally, I got to go to bed. Yay.
The next day my nephew was our chauffeur to church and then we packed up my mother's car and drove to her house. Her house was pretty much just like she left it except one of the front windows got a big crack all the way across. I hope it doesn't cost too much to replace. Mom had really been enjoying the warm weather but last night we had winds up to 50 miles per hour and today we had rain, hail, and snow in some places. I'm glad it has calmed down but it is still going to be cold tomorrow. I can't complain because it will be back in the 70's by the weekend.
Hopefully, next weekend will not be as busy. I am supposed to hook up my mother's wifi and Roku if all the the packages arrive on time and the internet gets turned on without any problems. What are the chances of everything going smoothly? I don't think I have ever had the internet turned on without needing to call for an additional service call. Perhaps, for once, everything will work out without a hitch.
