Mama Jetplane in the House...

Mama Jetplane flew out Idaho on Saturday and we've been having a great time. My mom is quite a hard worker and we've gotten a lot accomplished so far.

We've planted my vegetable garden, some flowers, removed a large portion of wood chips on the side of the house, removed all my kitchen cabinet doors, and gotten a coat of primer on it all.

I've taken today and tomorrow off so we're gonna get to it.

Gotta love this picture below. It was taken for our church directory back in probably 1985 or 1986. I believe I was in 1st grade and FYI I adored the outfit I was wearing. It was my favorite at the time. That would make me 5 or 6, my lil brother 1 or 2 and my mama 25 or 26. She was divorced from my father, a single working mom, supporting her 2 small kids, providing a private school education for me, and putting me in dance classes, brownies, and everything else. She is quite an amazing woman. So was my grandmother that help us out a lot during this time.

I love my mama a lot and I appreciate her coming out here. She's going to be here for 10 whole days....just us girls...well and the dogs aka her grandbabies. But what's hilariously (I don't think that's a word) funny...I feel like I'm living with a teenager. She isn't getting up until 11 o'clock. On Sunday I went it to make sure she was alive...at Noon. My mom never sleeps that late, at least I never knew her to sleep that late. She's always complaining about her lack of sleep so I'm glad she's getting all that rest while she's here.

Love you Mama...

This is so sweet! I'm glad you all are having fun. Your Mom is amazing, when I read she was a single mom of two at 25 or 26, my jaw dropped, what a woman!
