Mommy Dearest

I emailed my mom to see how it's like not going back to school (she retired from teaching after 35 years).  Her responses:

- I hope you have a big, fancy house like your cousin someday

and

- I need some more grandbabies to spoil

Geez, thanks for your gentle suggestions.  Huh?

She also said "Facebook is a full time job" which made me chuckle a bit.  Ohhhhh, mothers.

    Oh, I don't know mom. You better spoil me and me alone a bit longer so I know you are doing it right.......

  • Nice!  I like your thinking!

  • LOL! The line about your cousin's house - that's the kind of dig my mother would make, too. Augh. I feel your pain!

    I think you should send her a finn.no ad for a "big" and "fancy" place around here!

    I think my parents are taking it surprisingly well that we're about to take a $500K motgage on a tiny apartment.  No, strike that.  I think they're just overwhelmed and can't quite get a handle on it yet.

    PS - Drove through Moss on the way back from our friends' wedding near Str?mstad (you are near Moss, right?).  I can't believe your BF makes that commute every day!  At least he's on the train, because Friday's traffic was awful!

  • Yep, I'm in Moss.  Please tell me you stopped at Nordby shopping center and stocked up on cheap meat and 3.5% beer!

    The commute really isn't bad.  Tons of people do it.  It's 42 minutes by train, and commuters use it as nap, reading or work time.  You'd be nuts to do it by car, though.  And housing costs like half out here!
