Sometimes....

Sometimes all you gotta do is get to the other side to find your common ground.

My MIL do not have the worst relationship, we just don't have the best. We love and care for each other, I just think she is flighty and sometimes careless and I am sure she thinks I am harsh and critical.

Today I received an email from her. D$'s cousin is getting married and let me just say the wedding planning is a fiasco. They sent out save the dates for the April wedding in Dallas that we are excited to attend. We have friends (waving at Golightly!) and other family in Dallas too, so we were pumped to go. Um, they don't have a reception site. The church double booked them. They have no dress. No invites. No nothing. Looks like they have to change the date.

So my MIL emailed to fill me in. I emailed back how excited I am that we are all done and aren't we glad it is over!?! She emailed back a lovely response of yes and no...that she would love to go back and relive the day all over, it was so much fun.

Ahem. Did you read that?! My MIL who hasn't made one comment about my wedding since my wedding said she had fun! And that she liked it!

So today, I see the glass half full. Sometimes you just have to get to the other side.

That's great that she was willing to come out and say she had fun.

I'm personally starting to wonder about my own in-laws.

aww that is awesome, wow! And I'm ready for you to come to town, whoo hoo!! If D$'s cousin needs any recommendations, let me know, I used to plan events here all the time so I have tons of event & catering contacts. Unfortunately, I wont be able to use any of them for my own planning - which we are doing our own in Arizona!!
