My apologies for not being connected this summer. We've had a lot going on around here! For starters, my mother-in-law moved in for the summer. Yes, you read that correctly, I had to live with my mother-in-law for 6 LONG weeks. I won't bore you with the specifics, but let's just say I was drinking a lot more often this summer, ha!
As you can probably imagine, it's not easy adjusting to an added house guest. We had issues with food, wine, dishes, laundry, yard work, etc. And the worst part about it was that I felt like I didn't have a voice because every time something bothered me, I'd tell my husband and he'd address it with her when I wasn't around which just made things so awkward! I'm sure I just needed to speak up, but I'm a nice person and I hate bitching at people - it's NOT my style!
Nonetheless, I'd like to think there's something to learn from every experience. So what did I learn from this? No one should have to live with their MIL, ha! Just kidding, well... actually, not really. Aside from learning to really appreciate having the house to myself....
Thankfully, the said MIL has returned to her teaching job and we can enjoy life as we did before. Although I might have to change the locks just to be safe :)
