Home is where your kids are

My Mom just tickled me with a comment she made. We were watching the news and she saw what the temperature was and said “Oh, 19 degrees…that’s not bad!” Now this is coming from a woman in her mid 80s, who is ALWAYS cold. Not to mention that if it were 19 degrees in PA she would be in her apartment under multiple blankets and complaining that she can’t get warm, with the thermostat set to 82 degrees. Oh, what a few weeks in Minnesota does for you! What was it that Mary Lisa said…”I’m home here among my own people”. Mom must feel at home!

  1. Well, it's true, isn't it?! As long as we're together, it's not so bad.

    And 19 above, well . . . could be worse. (That's another good statement for you to take back east. "Could be worse.")
