Just a quick note to check in and then we are off later this morning to see family. With kids out of school for conferences it was the perfect time for Megan and the girls to spend a night at Great’s house, so Jim and I are taking advantage of them being closer to grab a visit as well. Did you catch that phrase – Great’s house???
About 16 years ago Jim’s mom received the new title of Great Grandma. Now if you knew Elda – Jim’s mom – you would know calling her great grandma would be a misnomer. Great Grandma makes you think of this frail, little old lady, right???? Not Elda! She decided she would much rather be Grandma The Great, hence the short name of Great. She’s slowed down a bit since her broken hip, not because of mobility though! It’s more because common sense sets in and reminds her that she probably shouldn’t be doing things like climbing on a kitchen table to change a lightbulb. She’s feisty, says her mind, independent, and we wouldn’t have her any other way.
If there had been an in-law lottery, I would be the winner. No one could have had better in-laws then mine. Jim was blessed with wonderful parents, and it’s because of them that Pool Boy is such a great husband, parent, and Papa. So, today – road trip it is. We are off to see our daughter. We are off to see our granddaughters. We are off to see Great.
Til tomorrow, God Bless!!!!
