Someone is VERY clingy lately. Mom goes to her computer to work on the checkbook and SOMEONE wants to be in her lap. Mind you, it's hard to enter stuff in the computer when SOMEONE is sitting with her head tucked into Mom's elbow.
The other day she was actually whining/howling when Mom left the house.
Monday is going to be SO painful.

In no particular order
Good thing Mom has plenty of time off coming up! lol
Mom has NO desire to see Patriot's Day. Been there, done that, don't need to see it. Marky Mark can say all he wants that he felt he had to do it to get it right because he's from Boston, but Mom wants nothing to do with it.

Part of the Da Vinci exhibit was about a Parisian Engineer (Pascal Cotte) revealed secrets about the Mona Lisa.
It was truly fascinating. But what was the MOST amazing (to Mom and Memere) was what the ORIGINAL colors of the Mona Lisa was when it was first painted.
You can see the difference below.
The sky and mountains were blue and her sleeves were a beautiful rich gold color. Mom would LOVE a poster of that!
They had other paintings and drawings there that were so fabulous Mom and Memere just stared at them, taking them all in.
The rest of the exhibit was fascinating as well. Leonardo invented a parachute (that worked) a scuba suit (that worked) the life preserver, he had ideas for a helicopter, tank and combat bridges. Da Vinci was always curious and always trying to figure out things and make them better.
It was an awesome exhibit and if it comes to your area, you should definitely go see it.
"I have been impressed by the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough. We must apply. Being willing is not enough. We must do." Leonard da Vinci

Because Sunday night into Monday is going to be ANYTHING but easy!
It's been VERY cold here, so we are snuggling up with Mom in a really BIG way.
Of course, the weather guessers said that all snow totals are subject to change so you KNOW where Lucky and I will be...

Mom and Memere are going to the Da Vinci exhibit at the Museum of Science today. It supposedly is "the most comprehensive exhibition on the Renaissance master to tour the world!"
Memere is very excited to be spending a day with Mom. They may even see an Omni movie. I am sure they are going to come back with lots of exciting things to talk about.
If I know Mom, she's going to come back with a cool Tee shirt.

Mom has so much vacation time (that she's been too busy to take) that she has today and tomorrow off. Next week she works 1/2 Wednesday then has Thursday and Friday off. The same with the week after that. She is off the entire week of Christmas.
I think going back to work in January is going to be very painful for her.
And me too.

Say Mom has a pile of paperwork that needs to get taken care of. She sits on the floor and makes piles. Then she deals with one pile at a time.
Funny thing, though, if I try to walk over and be near her, she yells at me to get off her piles.
Seriously, Mom, if you don't want me to walk on them, then don't put them on the floor!

Mom made Memere's stuffing for Thanksgiving this year. It is a meat stuffing and Mom LOVES it. She sometimes eats it without the turkey.
Turns out PlusOne really IS Mom's son through and through. They hadn't even left for Massachusetts and the family before PlusOne was eating a bowl of stuffing.
I guess the apple really DOESN'T fall far from the tree.
