Settling Mom Part Four or a Temporary “Cease and Desist”

For those following my blog, you may have wondered why I’ve gone “silent” on the Settling Mom series.  The subject of said series, Mom, asked me to “cease and desist” on any more posts showing off her new furnishings – until she was able to do the big reveal to a couple of dear friends coming for a visit yesterday.  After posting pictures of the statement piece, I was in serious trouble (not really though she told me to stop or she’d take away my MacBook).

The black-out has been lifted and I’m back in her good graces, allowed to proceed with the latest update.  Her bed was delivered on Tuesday and with that, she raced back to my sister’s home (her temporary residence), laundered her new sheets and packed up all her stuff.  She officially moved in and though surrounded by boxes, slept in her new bed.

Mom's snazzy new bedding.  It's really beautiful and vibrant.  She'd found this online months ago.  Great taste that Mom of mine.

Her check-in email the next morning was a good one, she’d slept wonderfully.  She’d been so exhausted the night before that when she saw an email stating her kitchen table and chairs had been delivered, she called the office to ask if they were holding her delivery.  They informed her they’d taken it up to her apartment and put it inside.  She looked and sure enough – several ginormous new boxes had joined the others – and she’d walked right around them without noticing.

She began to unbox the set – two chairs and a drop leaf table.  The table itself was so heavy that she opted to stop and wait for my brother-in-law and sister to come over after work and he assembled the set for her.

The single drop leaf can be raised should she need a larger table top for company.

Stay tuned for the next update in this series….more furniture has been purchased and will be delivered today.
