    Windward Farm, Washougal, WA- our work in progress, our money pit, our home!

    Default Go away, visiting family, go away!

    Vent alert!!

    Ahhh!!! It has been nearly a week of mother-in-law. Sigh. In this past week, I had knee surgery, took a few days off work, cooked Thanksgiving dinner (ok, she helped) for 6 and listened to her talk to herself. Yes, she talks to herself constantly. Well, she talks to you, but even if you leave the room/house/county, she'll just keep talking. She is nice, and helpful, but I just want my house back. I don't want to listen to the same "family stories" over and over again, I don't want to talk her politics and listen to her wacky views of the world. Double sigh.

    I can't even get away to the barn--did I mention minor knee surgery? Gah!

    One more more...then she goes 500 miles away least until Christmas. Oh..lord. She likes to come and stay for our full vacation--2 weeks!!

    My Mom too. Used to drive me crazy. I'd give anything to have her drive me crazy again.

    But, relatives are like fish...they start to smell after 3 days.
