Death in the family brings out the stress.
I went into the situation fully intending to support my husband and I vowed (not out loud) to be kind, smile alot and to refuse to be offened.
Well by this morning - after sleeping on the floor in my mother law's room, I was tired, grouchy and laughing at the in laws.
After spending hours today at the funeral chapel and with the extended family, I started baiting my looney brother in law by asking, "And what do you think about crop circles?" ("Nothing everybody hasn't heard before," was his answer.) But honestly, I don't know anything about them and who better to ask than Loon himself? Oh well.
We have made our escape and driven down the Blvd. of Dreams and taken up residence in a Comfort Inn. While it is a far sight more comfortable than the family home, it is not a room by the ocean. But there is wifi and I can prentend that I have been supportive, kind, smiley and never offended.
Get me outta here!
