My Mother-In-Law has been staying with us since last Friday. I truly, truly love my In-Laws. They are fantastic people, particularly because they produced my husband. But - - I do not deal well with houseguests for more than one night. To top this off, my Father-In-Law joined us last night, as he’s been away in Calgary since Friday.
There are a couple of guarantees you can count on with a visit from them - - A lot of eating out - - television shows you wouldn’t watch in a million years - - when you’re not watching shows you wouldn’t normally watch, you’re watching either the weather channel or the news. And when both in-laws are in the same room together – you get a lot of ‘discussion’ (which in my tired old ears boils down to constant bickering. It’s not mean spirited – it’s just constant).
Bitch, moan, complain – forgive me. I just want my house back. On the flip-side – they’re going home today, and I’ll probably, sorta, miss them, a little.
While I was over visiting at This Is My Wish, she posted an interesting little … quiz … ? Not sure what to call it. But try it out and see if it works.
1) What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of me?
I’m not sure how that will work, but I figure why not give it a try! J
