Is this normal? To enjoy having your mother in law staying in your house? Eating your food? Sleeping under your roof? Washing in your bathroom? Last night while MIL was cooking the meal and Wife was taking care of the baby and I had my feet up on the sofa with a beer everything seemed to magically click into place. I had a vision of the future and I kind of liked it. Let's face it, FIL is not the healthiest feller in the world so it can't be long until we might see 'certain situations' arising. Maybe this is the beginning of a big nationwide backlash against single living and having extended families under one roof will become fashionable once more? I just can't believe that it's all starting in my living room! PS, we're out for a nice posh meal tonight, guess who's babysitting?
