each time that we travel to minnesota to visit my parents, we always stop by to visit my mom at work. she works in human resources for a major insurance company (in our town, anyway, the “company” is everywhere you look) — in other words, cubicle-central. my mom loves the ladies that she works with, especially her boss. so, we always stop in for a quick visit (or “showing”) with the ladies so they can ooooh and aaaaah over marmie’s three handsome grandsons.
this year was our last-ever visit to mom’s work.
today she officially breaks the 6-month mark as she slowly but surely works her way towards retirement at the very end of 2011. i am so excited for her to retire, i can’t even tell you! mostly for selfish reasons — we’ll get to see a whole lot more of my mom and dad when they have the freedom to travel whenever they like, for however long they want to stay. i cannot wait to see them here in our home in breckenridge for more than a week at a time. first project my mom and i want to do together? make a homemade quilt to display proudly on our living room couch. next year, i am hoping phil’s dad can help us build a garage with an apartment above it. it will be a great place for the grandparents to stay when they visit so they can have a bit of privacy right next to our small house with three very busy boys. i’m keeping my fingers crossed!
