I think I'll copy this in case I need it sometime!
I'll claim my account has been hacked!!!!!!
I have a good FIL and get along with him most of the time. Lost my MIL to ovarian cancer in 2011. She was the best MIL anyone could ever ask for. The main problem is SIL has 4 kids and they can't talk one at a time. Usually at least 2 are "conversing" at any given moment and one screams to be heard over the other and it escalates from there. I actually wore ear plugs around my neck and 3 times I had to put them in. The youngest is now 12 so things are getting better. The noise level was much more tolerant than previous years. I actually enjoyed tonight.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone and safe travels!!
