the In-Laws

Da-da-da-dummmm. Well here it is Monday evening. Greg and I made it home before Grandpa Frump pulled in. Whew, that was a close one. Greg and I had a 2:15 pm meeting in Grand Rapids this afternoon and didn't even get started until 3:50 pm.... the only good thing about it was the babysitter had to deal with Lauryn and her homework tonight, THANKS MOM!!
Grandpa Frump and Grandma Patty don't get along... to say the least. It has nothing to do with her dementia either! So she's not looking forward to him being here, and Greg and I are doing our best to make sure all goes well. Grandpa stays as happy as we can keep him, and we don't leave the two of them alone together for longer than it takes one of us to pee!!!
Grandpa came up because he has been gracious enough to loan Greg and I some money to get a minivan. That will relieve a lot of the stress of getting Liyah to and from school!!! Thank you Jesus. It will also cause us to owe G.F. money.... but that will be paid with the wonderful income tax return next spring. Again, Thank you Jesus!!
I think tomorrow will be quite the shopping experience with both G.F. and Greg looking at cars. One has certain opinions of what he'd like to buy.... call it two full weeks of internet research. The other one holds the purse strings. I told Greg it's not always easy to put away your pride and be grateful for what you get. But we WILL NOT look this gift horse in the mouth, WE WILL be grateful.
G.P. will probably think that she will be getting taxied around town everyday now that we will have a vehicle during the days Greg's at work. That will be nice to get out and about more, but it won't be everyday.... unless she wants to pay for a maid service. Something about keeping things running smoothly in a house of 5 keeps me home the majority of the time!
Although, the babysitter did do 3 loads of laundry while we were gone too!!! Now I'm going to have to pay her more money (although 0 x anything is still 0 right!) Thanks mom!!
Well, I may have some more interesting info to post tomorrow!! I'm hoping it isn't going to be a 9 am- 9 pm day!!! Whoo- hoo!!!
