It IS Monday already
: But tomorrow is, like, Friday... or something. I love holiday weeks and hate them at the same time, you know?
I lucked out in the MIL department - she's awesome. We share a lot of the same values, ideals, parenting strategies, etc. and she's NICE. She and her partner are very very involved with the kids - they live 7 minutes away and are really helpful. FIL - not so much. They also live 7 minutes away, but are very 'busy', and I think it would be overestimating to say they see the kids once a month. They are very nice, but very distant. FIL is really emotionally unavailable, which is hard on DH. But all around, a manageable IL situation.
MY family, on the other hand
: as much as I love them, I am glad they are not local.
Els, I hope Sol is feeling better! Ear infections - no me gusta.
KK I will never tire of hearing about your ovary. I had a bad cyst in high school, and it ruptured, and because we were in rural NM they diagnosed appendicitis and, yup, took out my appendix even after they saw it was fine.
Good to see you, EL. Thinking of you often.
Heath, how are you feeling?
I think I had more but my time, it is up.
