the BIG countdown. June 30, 2011

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!

my mom, "marmie," and tate, lincoln & silas at her desk at work.

congratulations, mom!  less than 6 months to go now… you can do it!
