While Mom and Dad were soaking up the sunshine in Florida, back here in frigid Michigan their children were hard at work... most of the time.
One of the items on our busy schedule was helping Josh and Theresa move out of their apartment and back into Theresa's parents for a while.
Of course their apartment was all the way at the top of the building. Three flights of stairs.... Excellent exercise! ;)
Up in the apartment Theresa was busy trying to fit everything into boxes,
Down below the guys were endeavoring to fit everything in the vehicles! They were quite successful actually, and we only had to make one trip back, with 2 out of the 4 vehicles for the remaining bits and pieces.
We only had one major accident, which unfortunately involved Theresa's right leg being severed at the knee. But not to worry, we just happened to have just taken apart the coffee table and gave her one of it's legs to stand on. She'll be just fine.... :P
The rest of the time (when we weren't discussing chickens, ducks, pigs, cows, farming, moving, or life in general) we spent cleaning up the house for the parent's return.
You would not believe how many times we washed dishes on Saturday as we cleaned the kitchen; it is absolutely marvelous how many dishes 4 people can go through!
LOOOOOKKK A clean Counter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
With lots of hard work, a good dose of soap and elbow grease, we did managed to have everything in pretty good order by the time we had to go pick up Mom and Dad from the airport. Pheww! :)
So, there is a very brief and incomplete summary of our last weekend.
