Friday, heading for home

     Hub's and I will be heading home tomorrow. We have really enjoyed the grandson and of course the kids.  It has been a nice break but I will be glad to get home and get a summer schedule started.  I have a mega load of yard work to do and I am really going to concentrate on getting the board and non-profit lined up for some fund raisers to help pay summer bills.

     I have a ton of yard work left especially in the back yard and a garden to tend.  Mom called the realtor yesterday and she is due at mom's house with paperwork today.  I am shocked.  I just get the feeling the house will sell right away. Mom did look at one apartment but it was too small.  I have a feeling I will spend much of my free time in Missoula this summer.  If mom is going to live alone (which she thinks she is) she might as well stay in the house, but she also realizes that my brother will try to gravitate back.  If not my brother than his son or my other brother and his wife and kids.  As long as she has that big house she is a magnet for the users of the world.  She will never be able to say no to the boys and their kids.  The only way we can protect her is to get her out of that house and control her spending on them. 
     Grandson woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.  I just have to laugh at him.  He is so much like his mother.  Now he wants to make a cake!  I am going to look for recipe's.

Have a great and productive day.



  1. Sounds like you are having a great time with your grandson. Have a safe trip home!

  2. Seems like selling is the best (and safest) way to go at this point in order to keep the scavengers away!

  3. I am sorry your family is going through all this. If you look at it from strictly a maintenance standpoint, renting an apt would be a better option since there is no yard work or responsibility for the physical structure of the place (less worries) The fact that there is not room for additional "boarders" is just a bonus. Plus a brief rental period might be what your mom needs before taking the step toward moving in with one of the family. NO one wants to give up their independence.

    Glad you had a great visit with the grands
