The Mother-In-Law Disclaimer

In general, I like mothers-in-law.
If fact, I used to like mine... a lot.

I believe my only real beef with the mother-in-law is that I lived with her.
By choice.
For too long.

If we had never shared a home, I believe I would still adore the woman.

Instead, I shiver at the sound of her voice.

I tell you this so as not to offend any visiting mothers-in-law. My comments here do not reflect on the relationship between all DILs and MILs. In fact, I wish you the best, and if you already have the best, I respectfully am envious.

... I feel comfortable sharing some stories. :-)

Rose, what I've learned (very recently) is that it's not how you feel about someone that is the sin. It's how you react. I thought I was really a bad person because so many people annoy the living daylights out of me. But it's not in how you feel. It's in how you react. You haven't killed her.... right?

I think you meant to write "You haven't killed her... yet?"

And no, I haven't.

And since she moved out, I'm almost kinda starting to like her again... sorta... a little.

(Good to hear from you!)
