And all that stuff

What I said to LauraN after her daughter’s comment was, beats serpent-dip-it-thusly finding new uses for a fondue pot.

And on that quick note, I’ll go back to helping Michelle with her last-minute packing. Like covering up her lemon bars, finding her another shipping box, wrapping her cinnamon rolls carefully for eating on the way to the airport, finding another box, putting away her leftover baby bok choy tomato soup, helping her finish her homemade dark-chocolate nutella she wants me to have, making sure she has cocoa for her hot chocolate and don’t forget your mug, and picking and eating the first homegrown tomato (which needed another day or two but it was share it now or never), a little Durkees sauce on our three carefully carved pieces.

Go Blue! It’s going to be very, very quiet after tomorrow.  She made sure we wouldn’t starve.

The pun never ends here, does it? We forgot to pack our student’s mug…and he didn’t do a thing to make sure WE didn’t are a lucky woman.

How sweet! I can’t recall what mug I took to college, but I know I had one… I know my Hot Pot was white, and I can tell you the make and model of the popcorn popper I took…

Sounds like you were making sure SHE didn’t starve (or suffer from dehydration).

My daughter went to UC Riverside, about 60 miles from our house, but she lived on campus. After we finished moving her in — and it was a long, LONG day — we got in the car to head home. Al asked me what we should do for dinner, and I said, “Oh, I’d better check with Kitty.” Right then it dawned on me that Kitty wasn’t going to be home for dinner, that night or any other night in the foreseeable future, and I howled the rest of the way home, with Al navigating traffic and murmuring, “There, there.” Sigh.

Each taking care of the other – what a lovely family you have made. I know you’ll miss her so much.
