Lucy's Bed and Breakfast


Yesterday my mom came out for
"orientation" on how things are done here on the 'stead.

I'm sure it was completely unnecessary because
she has raised more children than I have, after all.

But....
I just thought she might want to get acquainted with
things before she is in over her head.
Oh, she's in over her head already and there's no turning back now

For whatever reason,
she seems excited...looking forward to it, in fact.
Go figure.

Here is part of an email she sent me last night...
kind of revving herself up for the big adventure, I guess.

(Or perhaps she's marketing my home to make some extra
cash while we're gone...
who knows,
she's very entrepreneurial.)
If you see this advertisement in your local
newspaper, let me know, OK?


Come and enjoy Lucy's Bed and Breakfast.
Located on 10 secluded acres with a pool and personal grilling area.
Extra fresh eggs will
make your omelets unforgettable.
Your own personal bedroom and spa.
Personal attention to every detail (every detail),
provided by a very willing and able Chinese attendant.
Your every need will be met before you even know you have one.
Your day will begin before daybreak in order to
give you the most for your money.
Live comedy routines 24/7!
Book early!
Spots are limited.

**No, the above picture is NOT my home.
However, if I return to find it transformed to
that, I won't be the least bit disappointed.

LOL! What a wonderful outlook! I'm sure they will have a great time together while you are away in China.

I wish we lived closer too.....I know the girls would LOVE Miss Lucy.

Ooh, you could have said that was your home, and we wouldn't have known! LOL! Then we would have all been wild with envy wanting a bathroom like that!

Continued prayers for you as you are inching (flying) closer to leaving!!

Janet, Kevin, Ted, Philip, and waiting for Eli

Sounds like your mom is well able to handle things while you're away--a sense of humor being at the top of the qualifications list!

Looks like you got your sense of humor from your mom. :) That is way cool that she is looking forward to it! That always takes a lot of the stress out of the trip if you know your caregivers at home are actually ENJOYING your kids. :)

What a great email to get from your mom :) The girls will have a great time together while you are away!
Praying for you! Can't wait until Monday when you are with Shu Li!!

I love your Mom! She is probably my age, in fact I probably new her in high school!

I love her enthusiasm! Does she need something to do around April or MAy of next year? She can bring Lucy! Oh and Shu Li! Okay, Brendan and Nick can come, too!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOUR TRIP TO CHINA!! YIPPEE!! YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR PRECIOUS GIRL HOME!

BTW I'd like to make a reservation at Lucy's B and B!

And my hubby just looks at me like I have lost my mind. lol ogh well. And btw thank you for saying that pic was NOT your house. I was feeling very sad about my nonspa like place.

That is so cute! "Live entertainment 24/7" That is for sure. She would entertain anyone just by being so cute!

Wouldn't that be nice if you returned home to a bathroom makeover that looked like that picture. OOOOHH! That would be nice! :)

It seems like you got your sense of humor from your mom. Family get togethers must be hilarious! With your mom and your sons, not to mention you. Wow, that would be a lot of fun!
