My mother has MS (multiple sclerosis). She’s had it my entire life. (She first had symptoms when she was 16 but being the 1960′s, when the doctor said those symptoms were from being overweight, she didn’t fight him. Took her TWO DECADES to work up the courage to tell another… Read more »
A snapshot of today: I am currently sitting on my in-laws couch in Canada. My husband is sleeping on the floor (we’ve already had a long day!) while my MIL rests in her room and my FIL sits across from me working on my grandpa-in-law’s birthday gift.
My parents are trying to sell their house and move to Florida. This is looking like a long-term goal instead of a short term one, but that’s not relevant. In getting ready to eventually move and to make sure their house is presentable to prospective buyers, they needed to clean… Read more »

We’ve all said it, you can’t choose your family. Oh that you could … day dream over! We say it when our family does something we don’t like, or we feel the need to defend our relationship with this family member. But sometimes it’s more serious.
For me, family is everything. I live, and would die, for my family. Included in this are some incredibly close friends who have become defacto family members. But everyone’s version of family is different.
Ok first let me preface this by saying D and I are NOT getting divorced. Not even close. But the topic is still very real. We all know couples, both dating/engaged/married who we “just don’t see it.” We don’t quite get the relationship. Or we’re not happy with it. And this… Read more »
