I haven't had it. My school is now mask-optional (since March), but my classroom aide and I are still wearing our masks. Our students are too young to be vaccinated, and I have 36 of them (AM/PM). ...

Lol, we're not living in the 50s. Her goal is not become a good little wife and mother. She's going to be a veterinarian; chances are he will stay home with their children if they even choose to...

Aw, thanks --- I'm fine! I'm not as involved as people think. And there's so much more to it than I've written.

Not at all.

DD wants (needs) to not be overwhelmed by crowds and/or strangers, and to avoid indoor spaces with loud music, and to not be the center of attention for things like cake-cutting,...

A couple of things......

First, DD and Fiance do not have Facebook, so they won't know about this unless I tell them (or MIL does).

Secondly, they agreed to a SMALL intimate party, not a huge fancy wedding reception.

DD's future MIL just took it too far.......

Last time I posted, I think I wrote that the kids had agreed to a SMALL reception on Long Island a few weeks after the wedding, so that MIL can have her family attend.

Well, she just posted on...

Thank you!

Thank you so much for validating what I felt was the right decision. I think that the reason my other brother feels so strongly that I should be at the memorial, is due to his own absence since our...

Family dilemma.....

My SIL passed away in January. She and I were not close at all; I hadn't seen her in probably 15 years. My brother and I are also not close (but working on it!). You may recall that I drove 2 hours...

I never thought of that --- great idea!

But I'm having trouble finding a car available. Is there a better way to do this than on a website?

Oh yes!

I have a 2-page letter, explaining all of my policies. And just like you mentioned, if a child shows up late, their lesson will END at the normal time. I have 6 lessons, back-to-back, and I refuse...

Would you make the trip?

Some people think I'm crazy for wanting to do this, so I'm running it by you guys.

Should I make this a daily thing?

I probably won't, because I really don't want to be mean-spirited. But this one cracked me up.

Keep in mind that the wedding is literally 14 months away.

MIL texted DD today:

We're going to include 3 or 4 hotels on the wedding website, so when the guests RSVP, they will see what's available (honestly, I don't see why they can't just use Trip...

You don't know the grief he's gone through with her. He DOES assert himself. SHE WON'T LISTEN. She never gives in. She'll start all over with her questions and "demands" on the next phone call....

I refuse to watch it because they didn't get permission from the victim's family, who are incredibly upset about it. Can you imagine if that were YOUR mother who was killed? And they made a COMEDY...

Get ready for 14 months of posts about the future MIL - lol!

So, DD, her fiance, and I went out to see the venue today. It's about 2.5 hours away from us, and about 4 hours from Long Island, where DD's future MIL lives. She wasn't able to go with us, but...
