this morning i woke up and went out to the living room where gram, dick, and mom were all chatting together. as soon as i sat down gram told me that she had plans for me on the 17th. i quickly discovered it was not for going out somewhere nice or for a fancy dinner. no, she wants me to put on shorts, my new v-neck shirt, and wear nice earrings and make-up then come over to her new house while the movers are working in hopes that my presnce will magically make them more careful with handling her possesions.

does this sound a bit odd and amusing to anyone else? do other grandmothers ask this of their granddaughters?

i love my family.

p.s. i told her i’d do it.
