    holy cow. I love my in-laws, but 13 days? I'd kill them after about 4 1/2. Maybe you could send them on one of those overnight hikes into the grand canyon at some point.

    I love my MIL, but I can only tolerate her up in my house for, like, 2 hours.

    Not. joking.

    The good news is that they're insanely nice people. Really easy to hang with. But it just goes against my entire life history of being a hermit and hiding when people try to come into my house.

    I hereby nominate Candy for sainthood.

    Nice or not---hello! They're still inlaws, and you have no means of escape.

    13 days. Ye gad. I don't want anyone in my house for 13 days straight except the people who already live here. (And, love them as I do, I wouldn't mind if they made themselves scarce for a few hours every 12 days or so.)

    Of course, I go and live with my in-laws for a month every summer, and so far I haven't gone crazy. They put up with us because we bring the grandchildren. We survive because their house is near the ocean and they keep a well-stocked wine cabinet.

    Scrabble. Cocktails. Should work, at least for a few days.

    Pink This, does sainthood come with insurance?

    E., I always suspected the beach was a big de-stressor on those trips.

    JBelle,
    The Scrabble and cocktails are working. But what do we do with the in-laws?

    My mother-in-law is here. She is the best mother-in-law on the whole Earth. Still. When she's here I turn into some kinda bitch from hell. Something to do with my husband acting like a teenager and my sons thinking that the normal rules don't apply because I'd never be that mean around Nana. Mommy Gravity never takes a break, baby. Keep pushing the envelope. Go on.

    Citlali, any more cocktails and I will pickle myself. :)

    Ana, your job is much tougher than mine right now. Yow. I can't say Scott regresses into a teenager, because he's always like that. Much more mature than my 11-year-old behavior.

    You are a super power.

    See, now, my mother-in-law is kinda hot, so I really don't mind her hanging around all that much.

     
  • At 10:19 PM, Blogger Candy Rant said…

    OK, Steve. You needta be smacked now.

    vodka is mostly undetectable and rather helpful... just sayin. :)

    Hot. Mother-in-law.

    Is it legal to use those four words in that order in a sentence all together like that which he just did there? Crap. Broke the grammar. Dammit.

    In-laws bring ice chest,
    No-name soda; foam-band wrappers,
    My heart is cold, dead.

    Miss B.,
    I'm keeping that vodka tip for future use.

    Ana, I already sent someone to slap Steve around. He will have learnt not to talk about his momma-in-law like that by now.

    Tony,
    I forgive you the extra syllable, because the art spoke friggin volumes, dude.
