I know I haven’t updated in a while, but not much has been going on in my life. So I decided to add another installment of “Shit My Grandma Does.”
As some of you may already know, I took my grandma up to New York back in April and kind of… just left her there. My parents wanted time to sort through my uncle’s old belongings and clear out his room. We knew she wouldn’t let us give away any of his stuff. We went back to New York for Independence Day and drove her back down to Georgia.
First of all, there was only four of us in my mom’s SUV. But, there was no room to move! For some reason, my grandma decided to bring all the food in my uncle’s house back down to Georgia with us. I sat next to a bag of Banh Mi sandwiches and a crate of mangoes – as if we couldn’t get those in Georgia. Our trunk was already half way filled with a case of Ensure and about 14,000 tons of sugar. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. My uncle in New York works in a sugar factory so we get a lot of free sugar. We still have so much sugar from the last time we drove up to New York last August.
When we got home, the first thing my grandma did was cut out a picture of a cow from a magazine and tape it to our wall. I’ll take a picture and update with that later.
Our pantry is filled with boxes of sugar. I don’t think we need to buy sugar for the rest of our lives (or at least the next 10 years). It’s not even just regular bags of sugar. We have the little sugar packets and a whole box of bags of brown sugar. And since our pantry was so cluttered, she made me take three trips to the basement to move all the extra sugar out of the way.
I think she’s still adjusting to being at home and looking for things to do. Hopefully, she’ll soon stop asking me to carry things around and rearrange stuff in the house. I can’t find anything!
Either way, anyone need any sugar?
