  1. What is it like to be a blogger?

    I have never blogged before, so this is my first attempt. I guess I will use this to write about my background and about life in Finland. There are many things here that are different from the USA.

    What do people want to hear first?

    Baby leave?
    Medical coverage?
    College education?
  2. Even if no one reads this, Venting makes me feel So much better!

    Well, This is my first 'STORY' on here. Where to begin..

    First off I have two beautiful kids with my boyfriend of 5 years. Or should I say with him and my MIL. We lived with her until my daughter was about 4 months old and in December we had to move back do to the cutbacks at my boyfriends job. I FEEL LIKE IM GOING CRAZYY!!! I am a proud SAHM and as soon as my MIL walks in the door I cringe.

    She is CONSTANTLY commenting on how to dress my kids, what they eat, how ...
  3. Must Rant Again

    Ok, MIL wakes me up at 4:30am because she can hear the coyotes yipping. And she swears they are in the side yard messing with the chickens.

    My MIL has 2 cats that she used to let roam outside when she lived in Missouri previously, but kept indoors only in Texas.
    Well, about 6 weeks after moving in, I started noticing an odor. I knew what it smelled like, but couldn't figure out who or where. Yes, I knew it was cat urine. My MIL started blaming it on Georgie, my 4 ...
  5. A Little About Me/Us

    Hi, My name is Lisa. My husband is Pat. And my MIL is Nancy.
    My husband and I have been together for 9 years, but only married for 9 months. We recently bought a house on 3 acres in rural Missouri so I could breed and show my bantam Silkies (that's a type of chicken) without our neighbors complaining.
    We lived in Fort Worth, Texas where I could have 12 chickens according to city code. That didn't seem to matter to our neighbor though. He would call code compliance or animal control ...
