This morning we got some winter weather that nobody was expecting. We had freezing rain and sleet and it caused schools to be closed, tons of accidents, and all kinds of chaos. Now accidents aren't good, nor playdates being cancelled (it happened to us), but having the trash coming later than usual gave me time to get a trash tag and put out the trash since my husband is a slacker (we have to pay for our garbage to be picked up, quite ghetto). So are morning plans were altered, but it was nice having daddy home a bit longer since we had to wait for the roads to warm up before venturing out and since my mom was off from school we went over to her house to play this morning. Even though it was only ice, I still enjoy unexpected winter weather. I wish the feeling of winter would last, it is suppose to be in the sixties by Monday, which will be great for playing outside, but bad for that Christmas feeling.
Last night we had my in-laws over for dinner. It wasn't as bad as I feared. They are very nice people and they mean well I just don't handle being mothered very well. Jeff said he sensed that I was pretty irritated at the beginning of the meal, but I lightened up towards the end. It is hard, we don't see eye to eye, I am very independent person and I don't like anyone telling me what to do, and I still have a bit of a grudge against them. A month ago Jeff's grandparents and aunts were coming into town for the weekend, something happened and they weren't able to come. Well unknown to us they came a different weekend and nobody bothered to let us know that they were town. We aren't able to go and visit them often because of the store and it is a pain with lance to go for 24 hours for thanksgiving, in fact we haven't really seen them in two years, but anyways. We were planning on making an effort to see them, but we weren't given the opportunity and according to jeff's parents this was their last visit, the drive is too long and jeff's grandfather can't handle the stairs anymore, so who knows when we will be able to see everyone again. So I have a bit of a grudge I am trying to let go of, but I am quite good at holding grudges so it is hard.
