Holiday Visitors

Saturday, December 22, 2007
My Mother-in-Law flew in last night from Ohio to spend the holiday with us. Unlike a lot of folks, I actually enjoy my MIL. She's a decent woman who raised two boys to be decent men. And considering how stubborn my Smart Man and his Smart Brother are, that was no easy feat. She has a good sense of humor, and is a reasonably independent human. She also possesses that pearl of great price - she's quite adept at minding her own business, and allowing us to mind ours.

So I'll be spending less time on the computer over the next few days, since I want to visit. Feel free to use this space to bitch about your own in-laws, though.


I'll be here gloating.

Spending time with your family instead of amusing us? Not. Fair.

Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas and all.

Nathan, I suspect I will always be a spectacularly unsuccessful Dancing Monkey.

I guess that's just my cross to bear.

I love my mother in law for the most part, she raised her son right. Now, if she could only drop the questions about if we were going to have children. Gee, that one should be self-explanatory after almost 8 years. I am not going to explain my health there with anyone other than my husband, that would be tmi. But I love her to death, and she does mean well, I know.

What Nathan said. Enjoy your time with your family.

Becca, fortunately my Smart Man and I made it very clear that we did not want to have any children together, so it doesn't come up.

My Smart Brother-in-Law bears that burden. Poor Smart Brother-in-Law.
