Well we made it back. Got in about 2:45 this morning. Have a fairly productive weekend. DH got alot of the things he needed, fixed MIL's computer (again), Cut FIL'd hair. Rearranged their livingroom for them, MIL is in a wheelchair (motorized scooter) since she can't put any weight on her foot. Now they have enough room to move about without running into anything.

I got my birthday present early, MIL bought me a sewing stool. It is about 40 years old and has books in it from 1940's all in fantastic condition!! infact they look brand new.

I got some of my plants from the other house, I had to convince MIL that they were too crowded, it worked. So today DH and I will be out digging in the garden!

We still have to make another couple trips up there for the rest of the things.

MIL gave us, an antique dresser with mirror, Wadrobe, 2 night stands, 2 bedside lamps (wooden) and a drop leaf table. All of which belonged to her parents! I'm so excited to get these things, but we will have to get them next trip. I didn't want to put them on the back of the truck and them get damaged!
