The kids left Friday morning for the Oregon coast with my mom.
They do this every summer, and each time my mother swears it is the last time.
She drives up straight through from San Francisco, because she is crazy and crazy about her grandchildren, and winds up getting overly tired.
She then spends a week cooking and cleaning for four children and a host of other hangers on and family members she invited, and returns to my place exhausted, only to hop into the car the next day and drive the with the children back to her place.
Some where along the line I reluctantly fly to the bay area to pick up my kid.
Freyja will stay one week, my neices three weeks- Maxwell will fly home alone at the end of August.
While they are away I will work on some home improvment projects.
Our biggy this year is ripping out the hideous carpet in the livingroom.
I am also hosting a little party for some of my highschool friends.
One of them is flying into town for her stepdaughter's wedding! This wedding is making all of us feel very old.
