  1. Get Married or Run?

    I have been with my current boyfriend for 3 years. During the beginning of our relationship I got along with his parents my FILS great. I would stay with them when I worked close their home. I would meet them for dinner, movies etc. I still always thought they were a little nuts and over protective of my BF but, I actually enjoyed being around them.

    Well, today started out horrible. As usual. We live in a 1935 old farmhouse with a front porch. When we moved in, there were 2 barn swallow nests on the front porch under the eaves. I left them alone at that time because there were babies in it. When winter came around, I knocked down the 2 nests.
    Well, here it is springtime and the swallows are coming around again trying to build their nests.
    I don't want them on the front porch because they poop all over everything, will dive ...
