My parents will be here in exactly 5 hours, and I am so ready. I haven't seen them since Christmas. That's probably one of the longest stints I've gone without seeing them since I moved here. I have everything ready for their arrival...house cleaned? check. pantry stocked? check. guest bedroom ready? check. Now I just have to wait for them to get here!
We have a nice relaxing weekend ahead of us and hopefully the weather will be nice and make it oh-so-tempting for them to get those "moving south for retirement plans" on fast forward. Forecast this morning said partly sunny and an average in the mid-seventies. I haven't checked recently, but I'm pretty certain that it will beat the weather in Chicago this weekend.
Wait, I just checked...now it is supposed to storm this weekend. Come on Mother Nature - help me out here!
Ok, its official, breathe a sigh of relief, the high in Chicago is 55 this weekend, with a forecast of rain and wind, yikes! :) I feel better now.
I would say that the simple fact of me living here could lure them down, but as one of three daughters, I know that the two of them up north definitely outweigh me, so I have to use the weather to my advantage.
Anyway, I am so excited! I'm sure I will have some stories and pictures coming soon. And for now, I am anxiously awaiting their arrival. (and maybe still working on making sure the house is clean.)
