Prediction

My mom called me to ask if they could come by the house the day after Victoria's party instead. She and my dad are busy that Saturday. I think it's a good idea. Good for me because my house will already be cleanish for the visit and good for my dad because he will not be exposed to a bunch of kid germs. He has been on oxygen since last December and is resigned to staying on it indefinitely.

Now I am predicting, here for all the lj world to see, that this Sunday "visit" will last no longer than 30 minutes, if they indeed walk into the house at all, if they indeed manage to get here. There. I could be wrong, but I'm usually not wrong about these things.

My mom is very similar. Some of her first words when she comes through the door are "I can't stay long" and then some excuse about how busy it is at the funeral home. Presumably so I won't accuse her of slacking off, or something.

My parents are improving, although they have a long way to go. We lived in Riverdale for 10 years. It's maybe five miles from the house we live in now. Neither my mom or dad set foot in that house once. Then when we moved to Takoma Park, my mom was all, "Oh, we'd love to see your new house!" So I cleaned like a demon and made some great food and my mom walked through and looked at the inside for about 10 minutes while my dad sat out in the car in the driveway. Technically, I guess he was seeing the house, too.
