beatrice_otter: Babylon 5--Vir waving (Vir's wave)
My parents are visiting.  And my house is, as usual, a bit of a mess.  I did clean up some things (scrub the tub and toilets, things like that) but not others, because, look.

My Dad and I are a lot alike.  Our idea of a nice, relaxing vacation is to sit around reading and chatting a bit, occasionally doing stuff.

My Mom HATES sitting still.  She is one of those people who always needs to be DOING something.  Or she either goes nuts or falls asleep.

We're going out to do stuff in the afternoon, but just spending a quiet morning in.  So far, while Dad and I have spent time chatting, reading, and the like, Mom has:
  • Cooked breakfast (despite the general agreement being that we're on our own for all meals but dinner)
  • cleaned the kitchen
  • dusted all the knicknacks in the dining room
And yesterday she dusted all my bookshelves and the living room.  It's like having a house-elf.
