What's Up Wednesday

The last few weeks have flown by. 
I love having my Mom next door.  I see her everyday and of course I've been helping her get settled.  So much more to do but it's livable at least.
This guy has not been happy with all the comings and goings of the Grands but he is happy that this week seems calmer.
I can't believe it's JUNE and tomorrow is my birthday.  It has truly snuck up on me and if you know me you know that is unusual.  I do love my birthday!  But I will be celebrating all month so it's OK!
Sara has gone to a conference and Blake has stayed in town to work and get some much need repairs done on their house.  The Grands have gone to their Pops & Mimi's house for a few days.  This is their first time to be away from both parents for this long.  So far they are doing fine.  Pops (Sara's Dad) took Tiger fishing and they caught 4 catfish that Mimi fried up for them.  
Scout enjoying corn on the cob! 
Tiger enjoying some cartoons during quiet time!

My SIL Blake has been so helpful during the move.  He has put up safety bars and towel racks for Mom.  Put together a new bed she ordered and moved a desk (a very HEAVY desk) she found at a thrift shop from the store to her home.
Thank you Blake!

So that's about it for now!
I will be back with more soon I hope!

Happy Happy Birthday Linda! Enjoy your month of June celebrating!

Glad your Mom is at least to the livable stage. Unpacking, especially when downsizing was involved, can sure be challenging. Take it slow! Glad the grands are doing well away from home. I want to hug Mr. Toes so badly. :)

It is nice to hear your mother is so close, that has got to be a weight off your shoulders. You will have your whole family nearby when Ash visits...will be so nice for everyone.
Have a great birthday, girlfriend!
