I had a great day

Once my brother and I moved out of the house we started to joke about the stuff our parents were doing. All of a sudden, our dad, decided to take on home repairs that he had left undone the whole time we were growing up. Mom decided to take up sewing which she had never done and now has one of our old bedroom set up as her craft room. Every time we stop by it seems that they have replaced something with a newer model and we wonder why none of that was done while we still live there. Of course it probably helps that we aren’t there and their expenses are less each month so they can dedicate money to some of the things they’ve always wanted to do. The latest thing that they decided was to have air conditioning installed in the house, and mind you, that would have been nice while we still lived there. I think my dad feels that we would have taken advantage of having it and it would have cost him a fortune in the summertime had the air condition to the house while we still live there. He’s probably right. They also decided to add on a sunroom in the back which will have its own separate zone so that my mom and dad can sit out there and watch movies in the winter time. I’m sure they will enjoy that room year-round and I am happy for them that they can finally have the house set up exactly as they want it, but I still like giving them a hard time about it.
