08:09 am - Day 1:
So my parents got in Friday afternoon. I had a nice dinner waiting. They toured the house looking for imperfections first, ate, then started cleaning. Dad cleaned the downstairs bathroom. Then we watched a movie was interested in and went to bed. I think dad might have cleaned another bathroom too.
The next morning, I got up and started cleaning. Dad came down shortly after and cleaned the closets and the kitchen. Mom came down and started cleaning the living room. Hoppie, wisely, did not come down. I woke him around noon.
Laina came over with M and D around 2 and stayed for a bit. The kids were into everything. Their happiest discovery was hoppie's famous piano. Hoppie took me aside and whispered. "You will tell my parents how appreciated the piano is." Everyone mocked us when we took it.
This morning, me and dad are going to give blood. No phone post on the greater glory of vamperism this time, I promise.
Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished
Current Music: Sounds of dad doing don't think he's cleaning again?

Would that piano be the same one that was in Hoppie's parent's house all these years? Drastically out of tune but much loved?

Don't you start mocking too. He wanted it. It doesn't hold a tune, and it's not an heirloom, but he wanted it. And yes, it is much beloved. In fact, Betsy is counting the moments until she can reclaim it.

Oh, no mocking here - just wanted to be sure it was the same one before I tried to picture the room without it! I have some fond memories of Betsy trying to pick out Sting music that she hadn't practiced while I tried to sing along with about as much tune as the piano... :)

They completely redid the living room. Are you still coming up next month?

I'll be out, but for a much shorter trip than originally expected so I won't be making it out of Manhattan. :(
