One more (maybe)

I have a large family here. I also have a large family in NC. I get along surprisingly well with my ex-husband. We decided to do what's best for the girls so we don't fight and we don't talk bad about the other (because that's just stoopid sh*t childish people do). I think we've managed to even become friends again. He's remarried and I'm about to, so we're both happy where things are at for each other.

But, I'm here to talk about the heart and soul of my family there. My (ex)mother-in-law. I hate calling her that just because everybody groans inwardly when they hear the m-i-l word. I just call her one of my best friends forever. She's spunky, sassy, and I decided a while back that I wanted to be more like that. Believe it or not, I used to be very timid and quiet (it's true and you can kiss my you know what if you disagree). She is the epitome of mother in that family. She can cook and clean like it's I swear she has more energy than even Marj.

After me and he split, she let me and my two girls invade her home for a whole year. I know it was hard at times, but she always makes me feel welcom. Even now that he has remarried, she still treats me exactly the same.

As I've mentioned, if it weren't for her generous contributions (basically all of it) to my childrens' wardrobe, Mad wouldn't be "cool". She'd have to wear the same outfit more than once in the course of two weeks. And, poor Em wouldn't be able to pick from her plethora of dresses and skirts. So needless to say, LOVE HER TOO.

So, sorry Lula, but I have no dirt for you in this post. I'll see if I can think of any "friends" dirt to share with you (I personally think you're the only one who reads this anyway).

BTW, I told my mom to read what I wrote about her yesterday.She informed me I wasn't supposed 2 tell people that she locks her keys in her car all the time. So, in her honor, here is something else she does: because she's so short (4'10") she has to have two pillows behind her on the couch. I'm not sure why, I think it makes her feel taller. LOVE YOU MOM
