therefore, today we hoist up our trousers and begin the grand cleaning - my parent's trip down has become the perfect excuse/motivation to tend to those small, albeit hassling, odd jobs around the house. so, it's up on the ladder to clean the ceilling fan. get on the roof of the shed and clear off the debris. things like that.
nonetheless, we have a big week planned for mom and dad. pray they have a safe flight and trip down, i'll keep you all posted on the doings, including the preparation of the big turkey!!
