Fun with the ‘Rents

I buzzed down to Iowa for the Thanksgiving holiday. Unlike years past, this wasn’t as “relaxing” a visit.

Because of mom’s mobility issues, I had a few chores that she’d saved up. Also, this was the first year that she hasn’t cooked (when we didn’t go to a family members place). So we went to a buffet.

Now, I totally don’t begrudge my mom for not cooking (after all, she’s cooked plenty in my lifetime)– but the buffet was just kind of meh. And sitting in that restaurant just felt kind of sad.

As for mom chores, this is what I did:

  • Took her dogs to the groomers
  • Changed lightbulbs
  • Vacuumed
  • Laundry
  • Shifted her closets to “winter” clothes
  • Got up her Christmas tree
  • Decorated said tree for her
  • Pulled out all her Xmas tchotchkes
  • Put out her external holiday lights
  • Rewired said lights with new strands
  • Redid all the wires in her home entertainment system so her TV now plays through the stereo
  • Cleaned out two closets
  • Cleaned off the basement stairs landing
  • Put greenery outside and cleaned up planters

The only thing I hated about doing these chores was seeing how diminished her capabilities are. I also hated the fact that I’m not close by to do more.

With dad, i watched a lot of football. But dad also had me troubleshoot his computer. His external hard drive was not backing up appropriately, and he’s paranoid about losing his music and pictures.

After many hours of trial and research on an old PC (running windows 7), it appears his backup hard drive was kaput (although I think his PC has issues too). So we bought a new 2T drive and I installed it and got him all backed up and safe.

So as you can see, the weekend was a bit busy.

    Hey don’t knock Windows 7, at least it doesn’t go through update cycles three times a month. But alas – I run Windows 10, the SO who has the same identical machine it won’t upgrade. Drives me crazy.

    I’m sure both your folks are very appreciative of all you did for them. You can relax later. 😉
