I'M MOVIN' OUT

This cartoon has been on my frig as a bit of an inside joke. Mark’s Mom lived with us for awhile after selling her house in Carson City. Mark and I came back from a trip to the east coast to find she had moved out after some unpleasantness with our girls for which they were not responsible. They purposely didn’t tell us until we were home so that we could enjoy the trip.

She’s been up in Washington for almost two years but it appears she's coming back. She will live near us but not with us due to aforementioned unpleasantness. Besides, our weather makes her unhappy. She has health issues caused by smoking. She has financial issues brought on by her steely determination to compensate the tribes for the past, one nickel at a time. I hope that the girls will eventually be able to develop a positive relationship with their one remaining grandparent after their previous falling out. I’m just saying that it would be nice if he got me loaded.

Oh my, your description of her was beautiful until I read between the lines. Maybe we can find someone to sneak some Valium or Xanax out of the evidence locker...maybe even a Prozac salt lick we can place in her new house? Good luck, I feel for you.

I've got the connection for the meds! haha, just kidding...

Prozac salt lick, perfect! lol.

I hope her moving back is a positive experience but we'll have to see. i think it'll be better that she lives in her own house, maybe we can build up a computer for her but she might find online gambling instead of the positive sides of the computer...hmm, what will she do without her best fr---i mean casino...

anyone know some old ladies that like to play bridge?

-hope
