A Very Special Day

“Mom, guess what tomorrow is!” Mimi called to me excitedly

“It’s Election Day!” I responded enthusiastically.

“Noooo.” She replied with disgust. “It’s the day Grandma and Grandpa get here.”  After a moment she told me that she guessed it was voting day too.  Clearly, she has her priorities.

A few hours later I got a call from my dad.  He said that he had just called to see how I was doing.  Suspicious, I asked him if he was the car that had just parked outside and was making all that noise. (What you don’t always assume your parents have snuck up on you when they call?)  Apparently, my psychic powers were in full swing because they were standing at the front door. 

I gave them a quick hug then sent Dad downstairs where Mimi was working.   Right on target, Mimi started to shriek with joy.  (She’s always been Grandpa’s girl)  I’m not sure what it is about our family, but we sure do enjoy being sneaky. 

So…we can cross that off of our list.  The other big thing is to get out and vote.  There are so many things on my ballot that I need to lend my voice to.  Like the old saying goes, if you don’t vote, you can’t complain if you don’t like the way things are.   I’ll make sure my voice is heard first thing in the morning.  Have a very special day!

    Ahh so nice that you have your parents visiting. I love that they sneak up on you that way. It sounds like something my Dad would have done.. had there been cell phones in his day. 🙂

    Fabulous post and poster!
    What a day… I am all giddy with anticipation!
    LOVE LOVE that poster!
    I voted by mail 2 weeks ago!

  4. When my in-laws call I never know where they are. Once they suprised us by showing up at the door from 2,000 miles away during mid-terms. That’s not my kind of surprise.

    I can barely stand the wait for tonight.

    oh boy, visitors! Your Mom doesn’t post much on her blog anymore. . .

    I’m voting this afternoon then I am going to hide under the covers until it’s all over.

    I have a little something for you over on my blog if you want it!

    How exciting for you daughter to have her grand-parents over a day early. A very special day indeed.

  7. Linda says:

    I just hope I won’t have too much to complain about after the election. But that’s a thin hope. sigh I vote, I hope. And pray.

    Welcome Grandma and Grandpa! Is this your parents that are traveling around in their RV? And you mom is blogging about it? That is so cool! I wish my parents had had the chance to do that. Enjoy the visit.
