Any excuse for a party

Its really hard for me to understand WHY you suffer childbirth, raise children, put up with teenagers, pick out the perfect husbands for the...only to have them finally start to become people you can enjoy....and they leave the state! Worse yet they take your grandchildren, which is the only reason for their existence.

But such is the case with my ungrateful children. Lisa and TJ are off to Ohio (TJ thinks he wants to go to law school)

and Lindsey and Mike, Amy and Matthew are also going to Ohio (Mike thinks he want to earn a living).
So instead of sitting around feeling sorry for myself...We're having a party! Monday night the 29th come by the house anytime after 6:00 p.m. to bid them so long, swim, eat, play games, see my cute new grand baby and visit with the old people (Grandma and Grandpa are coming down to say goodbye to the deserters) I will have plenty of hamburgers and fixins...just bring a side or dessert to share (and if you want another form of meat, bring it to throw on the grill.) Hope to see you. If you know your coming leave me a comment...If you think your coming but don't want to commit...just show up, I have enough grandma Brown in me I will be able to feed a small army.

We ungrateful deserters will be there. And, for the record, my mom visits Calli's house in Kansas more than my house in Goodyear, so we decided we'd see her MORE if we moved FURTHER.

we will not be attending, and are sad we were not mentioned in your pity party post

I must agree with Lindsey. I don't even live that far away from mom and she never even comes to see me! But TJ and I will be at the party. That way my mom can feed me one last time before I abandon her forever!

We will be there to bid farewell to your naughty children. And anytime you get lonely I will gladly share my grandchildren with you. But on the bright side just think of all the fun traveling you get to do!
