  1. Mucho M-I-L's.

    I once read in a satire book that one of the things you should look for in a potential husband is a dead mother-in-law. They can make your life either better or worse. I have two. The one who is nothing but critical and the one who is nothing but supportive, although when my kids were young and I was insecure, I didn't realize just how supportive she was.

    After 'Skyfall' came out my H and I ran to the theatre to watch it, we love all Bond films and I harbour a special love for Daniel Craig- my husband looks just like him minus 20 years.

  5. Unsent Letter to StepMIL

    StepMIL,
    You have spent over four years talking about me and my children and husband. You have been caught talking to other people about our finances, my parents and my husbands real mother! You have been caught more than once doing it all in writing! This is insane to me that you proudly state that you will destroy me. I do not even know what that means nor do I ever want to know!
