" She's Going To Stuff Me"? An Update........

Well..........I'm exhausted ! This 30 year old has nearly killed the retirees! We are taking the day off to SHOP ! I may not survive this visit from my beloved daughter ! Although she would never admit it, she's tired too. It's almost 9:00 AM and she is still conked out! I caught my self wishing( momentarily) over the last two days that I didn't love books so much!! Moving books is not for wimps or wore out backs !

I'm not sure where the death talk started.........was it "I'll never survive this"? Or her saying;
" I'm telling Randy the next house we build has to have a Library".
( inherited books from me)
Or, me asking Hubby if the burial insurance was up to date as I collapsed on the floor?
Anyhoo.........the talked turned to my final resting place. I want to be placed next to my sweet Mother here in Mississippi. Oh No she says; " You are going back to Tennessee where I can visit and leave flowers". Then she says; "No! Better yet, I'm going to stuff you and put you in my guest room where I can see you everyday!"OMG....A permanent face lift! Have you ever noticed that the dead don't have wrinkles? HA! I don't know if this " stuffing" is about having me close or keeping the room free of guest!

I don't think shopping is going to get me any rest but as always, "what the girl wants is what the girl gets". A full report later!

Hahahahahahahahaha!!! I can't stop laughing, Carol. You should send this post as an article to a humor market. I'm serious!

Shopping is reserved with my best friend. My daughter hates to shop. I love it. Go figure. LOL.

Can't wait to read about your shopping trip.

Hugs and blessings,

Renie

What we won't do for our daughters. I'm anxious to read the post about your shopping trip. I must admit last Friday when my daughter and I went shopping (for hours). I spent the last half hour sitting in her van.
Hugs,
Sweetie

I know what you mean about too many books! And I can never seem to give any away! It is a good problem to have, though.

I just love shopping with my daughters. We find just the best clothes when we are together. And my daughters always tell me what looks 'koekerig'! That's an Afrikaans word which is hard to translate. It suggests an overweight middle-aged woman dressed in flowery fabric and outdated loose clothing to disguise her cellulite!

My daughter loves to shop with me...but as our ages differ significantly...I'm her best audience...rather, I watch her shop! It's fun though and I know ahead of time that eventually I will be coaxed to buy her some treasured item. Life <3
