I am convinced that my mom and I must share the same brain. When we are together we finish each others sentences, add punch lines to the other person's stories and generally think the same way. Right here is evidence. She sent me an e-mail yesterday completely unprompted about them coming down to visit. It's important to note that I hadn't talked with her about their upcoming visit (it's eight days away, but who's counting?)
Here is her e-mail:
Okay, so don't cringe...just the thought of us coming down might be sending shivers down your spine...lol. Also, don't go crazy trying to clean up or make the lawn "pretty". Dad and I are coming to see you, our grandpuppy and your roomie...not the house. Besides, the wind will just blow the freakin leaves all over the place after you rake them anyway.
Talk to you soon. Love Ma
What she didn't know was that I had an exponentially growing to-do list that had spanned 3 super-sticky post-it notes on the fridge of everything that needed to be cleaned, straighted up, put away, etc. One word-freaky.
