The Royal Visit

I made the whole family come to the airport with me to get Duchess.  She thought that was cool.  I drove with E riding shotgun.  Driving to the airport makes me nervous but I am into conquering things so we did that.  He was very supportive.

Mom gave me ‘what for’ about the state of my household.

She looked behind the desk in my son’s room:

“Do you see these balls of dust back here?”

She opened the refrigerator:

“Where is the food?”

She began vacuuming –  fifteen minutes after she got here, I might add.

“You know this is a good vacuum I bought you.  It hasn’t been maintained properly.  Everything must be maintained.  Now you see . . . “

I would continue but I think you get the picture.

Anyway Duchess was up and cleaning the kitchen at 4:57 a.m.  I know because I checked the clock.  She is making a big pot of green beans today.  The kids love it.  I’ve tried to replicate it in the past and have failed miserably. Personally I think it is a psychological thing on their part but what are you going to do?

Duchess and I are going to go buy big floppy hats for the graduation.  It will be 97 degrees out with no shade.

Everyone is interested in 17’s graduation except him.  Well that’s not quite accurate. 14 was downright nonplussed when he realized he had to go too.  He wants to invite a friend so he “will have something to do” during the ceremony.  He actually said that to me.

You guys have a good day.

My dad had a picture of Queen Nefertiti in his office when I was a kid.  For years I thought it was a picture of mom.  No lie.
