“Make time for your mother on your birthday. It’s a special day for her .”
^In reference to the first quote, I’m sort of ashamed to say I’ve never even thought of that! Came across this adage today, and definitely taking it to heart: I want to make it an effort to call my mom every birthday now. I mean, she only thought about my potential birthday for at least 6 months, and has celebrated it with me the past 2 decades. Thanks Mom for being amazing…you are the best ❤ 🙂
Me: Hey parents, so it turns out I’ll need a car in MD for this year
Parents: Hmm alright. Use the van for now.
Me: Will you guys be ok? (we didn’t have enough cars for everyone to drive to work, so my parents were going to carpool in the meantime o_O) Do you think it’s time I bought my own car?
Parents: Just keep the van for now. We’ll figure something out.
2 weeks later:
Mom: So…should I get the Tesla?
Mom: just kidding!
1 more week later:
Parents: We got an electric car! (Ford Focus!) It drives so well!
Me: So…what about the van?
Parents: The van is now yours. Enjoying the new ride 🙂
To put this in context, I now drive around a 2002 Toyota Sienna…total soccer mom status without the company ^__^’ Gotta love my family. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to have ANY vehicle to drive. But its sort of funny 😛
I think I’m going to start a new sub series, just because some of these things are too good to not post.
parents: Hey, when are you planning to move down to MD?
me: I was thinking June 22nd?
parents: Hmm…can you move any earlier, like the 20th? or later, like in July?
me: No, my lease ends June 28th 😦
parents: alright we’ll hire you a moving company, since we won’t be in town to help you move out. we’re going to northern europe for three weeks!
Haha my parents definitely deserve it though…they have been such good parents and deserve to finally enjoy life and empty nesting…while still supporting my tuition ^__^’ Can’t wait until the day when I can finally pay them back ❤
