I got home last night and the parents were sitting out on the porch waiting.

My dad held out his hand and said, “Congratulations, we are very proud of you, and remember we are always behind you.”

I almost teared up, till he said, “Now I can put your mother on the bus to your house every Friday and pick her up on Sunday.”

GC always looks on the bright side, so I will try too. It could be worse he could be sending your mom and your brother. Heh. Have a great weekend and congrats again! I am most jealous. I can not wait to buy my very own overpriced box!

Ah... if you work it right, you'll find your home all clean, tidy and with fresh cooked meals while you are out partying. I know the last three months my mom was here was .. bliss. :-)) You're lucky... every weekend?

Hehehe ... your dad is funny

Marika said...

I agree - your dad is v. funny!

On the upshot - your mother probably WILL bring food. My parents live interstate, but I always manage to come home with a chocolate cake or two that she sneaks into my luggage when I'm not looking.
