Happy/merry Memorial Day! My family and I spent the first half of our day visiting my great-grandparents' graves in Albany, Oregon. It was something we had never done before... I hadn't been back to that cemetery since we burried my great-grandmother there in 2001 but I'm really glad that we went. There were so many people there! What an amazing holiday that we can all take a day to honor those who have passed on and those who have served our country. The hour car ride there was filled with stories from my grandpa about his parents and about the Korean war that he served in. I sure love that man, and his stories were amazing.

Lindsey and I got this phone a few month ago and they're pretty great. All touch screen, lots of aps and other things. Mostly I just enjoyed the upgrade from the ancient flip phones we had before. But now, I've been having some trouble with my phone. It won't download picture texts for some reason and won't let me share videos. Everything else works just fine but it's bugging me. Technology is such a messy thing and definitely one I don't completely understand.
In other news, it's raining in Oregon. Of course :)
Oh, AND, the house prep continues. My uncle is the contractor doing the remodel so he promises to get everything done in a month but we'll see. He brought over a bunch of tile today for the countertops and floors. I'm just not very excited about the lack of a kitchen/living room for a whole month.

Well, it seems my mother enjoys chaos because that is the state of our current home. And if any of you know my mother, you know it's actually quite the opposite. We are remodeling the entire downstairs. That's right. My mother has gone cray. The to-do list includes: all flooring, kitchen cabinents, new appliances, new laundry room, etc. I will periodically be posting photos of how things are coming but hopefully (fingers crossed) everything won't take more than about a month or so. Remember I said hopefully. In preparation, we are clearing out everything from the downstairs. All the cupboards have to be emptied, all the food has to be eaten, all the furniture has to be moved.... everything. It looks like we're moving.
