I always see a movie or a cheesy commercial about getting together with in-laws and how the wife or husband gets super nervous.
I have to admit the day I first met hubby’s parents and step-mom I was pretty nervous.
I remember thinking…will he introduce me as his girlfriend? Or just a friend?
He actually first said, Dad, this is my friend, I mean my girlfriend…LOL.
I walked in, sat down on their couch, and thankfully they offered us some beer and wine…and food!
Not only the mothers-in-laws are terrific cooks, they both were amazing knitters…past tense…because they don’t anymore. One beads and the other quilts nowadays.
Oh I was thanking my lucky stars. I was really relieved.
I love them! So having dinner with them them is always lots of fun
and very relaxing.
It’s even a good thing when one of the in-laws has a second-home just twenty-five minutes away.
I so enjoyed another relaxing dinner which included excellent service,
and spending a lazy day with my family
being waited on hand and foot!
50 years from now, am you going to be thankful that I spent more time relaxing and rejoicing with family.
Or, am I going to wish I had 15,380 instead of 15,379 knitted projects?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
