I’m driving up to Roseburg today for Mother’s Day weekend and my mom’s retirement party. It’s a long drive, but going home for a visit is always worth the trip.
I surprised mom for Mother’s Day a few years ago. That was really fun. This time she knows I’m coming, but it should be just as fun.
This may be one of the last times I visit the house on Glenmar. Mom and Dick are downsizing into a smaller house, and a smaller mortgage for their retirement. That wasn’t quite how they had planned things, but the down stock market and economy is hitting everyone just a little.
