YES!!

Z and I went over to my parents' house this afternoon. We finally got some snow, so Z shoveled their sidewalk while I talked with my parents.

They had just got off the phone with the chemo dept of our hospital. They changed Dad's chemo schedule by 2 days on Christmas week. They'll be hooking up his chemo-pump on Wednesday instead of Friday. He'll still have to go into the hospital to have the pump removed on Friday, which is Christmas Day. I jumped right in with: "Why don't you let us cook Christmas dinner?" Mom instantly agreed, but Dad was a hard-sell: "We already bought the turkey." I told them that was no problem. We'll cook dinner, with their turkey at our house, and package up all the leftovers for them to take home. Case closed. High five!

BTW, I'll be making the dessert too. ;)

Excellent news! What a load off - and no argument, to boot!

WC, I just hope they stick with it.

VV, Yup. That phone call couldn't have come at a better time!

Jeannie, I NEVER thought it would be that easy!

Grizz, thanks!

I just read the previous post along with this one. Congrats on getting the meal at your place where you know the food will be edible. :-)

Those pies are hilarious! I'm glad you all had a chance to laugh, it IS good medicine.

Squirl, I'm happy to learn that my blog-friends' sense of humor is as equally warped as my family's.

Not only will the food be edible, but we also won't have to contend with a surly teenager. It's a win-win situation!

Case closed indeed. Sound good, except for the snow part at the beginning. No snow here yet :-)

ZF, I'm usually up about getting snow this time of year. After last winter's record snowfall, I'm a bit apprehensive.
Sorry to say that our snow is headed your way...duck and cover! ;)

Cherie, all day I was thinking about how I would broach the subject. Then it all just fell in my lap. I couldn't believe my luck!

Today my Mom volunteered to make dessert. "That's OK Mom. You've got enough to do that day. I'll make dessert." Another bullet dodged. ;)

Tweets, we all know that our parents will fail one day, but it's always a shock when it happens.

All right - you got them!!!!! They are probably so relieved! You are so sweet to do that for them.

Tweets, it sounds like it will be a blessing when he goes. :(

Gardenia, we really don't mind cooking the meal AT ALL. The guys are a great help with holiday meals...other days not so much.

I wish my folks were relieved. They hate losing ANY control. :(

VV, been there; done that! You can still call me though. ;)
