Mom and I are at her house while renovation is going on inside. Teresa flew away to work for a week, leaving a “Honey-Do” list for Randy. I wonder how long it will take my husband before he starts complaining that there is too much estrogen in his life. For some reason…Teresa is far more successful at getting things crossed off her list. Maybe it is because Randy would like a little normalcy returned to our lives. But then again, can anyone describe normal to me? I cannot recall what normal feels like.

Anyway… Mom is in her element. Rake in hand, she is smiling and sprucing up her nest at her new home in Ventura. And….her smile is so very precious to see.
