I went and kidnapped my mom from Nebraska last Sunday. She has been staying with us ever since. I have to take her back home on Saturday. We’re going to stop at the casino for a little bit before heading back. Just put a few bucks in the slots and leave with our winnings (or losings depending on how lucky we are).
Things have been going good this week. Mom, the kids, and I have been hanging out quite a bit. Haven’t really done too much though. We went to the lake, and the park, and ummm.. that’s about it.
I’m hoping that by bringing my mom here for a week that she’ll decide to move to Topeka. The only thing is getting her set up here the same way she is in Nebraska. She’s disabled and has lots of assistance in Nebraska that I’m not sure she could get here. For instance, there is a place in Nebraska that pays her rent for her since she lives on a very limited income. I’m not sure if there’s such a place here in Kansas. She certainly couldn’t afford the price for rent here in Topeka. I don’t know… We’ll see what we can do.
It’s nice having her here though. She helps take care of the kids and keeps the house cleaned up. I really appreciate it. I’m not USED to getting much help around here. So, thanks for the help MA!!
Plus, it’s just nice having her close. Too bad she has to go back home 150 miles away in a couple days.
Hopefully we can get something figured out so she can move here to Topeka.
Also, I have to thank my wife for allowing her to stay here for a week and being nice. I appreciate that too.
Of course, in May my wife’s mom is coming to stay too… but only for a week-end I think. So that makes it even…sorta.
Here’s a picture of my mom and my daughter Skylar. I snapped this at the park the other day:
