    His Family Is Wack!

    My husband's side of the family is more than just dysfunctional! They play favorites and tear down my husband for all his short comings. It's disgusting. My own mother in law didn't even say she loved my husband! Can you believe it's taking that ***** over 1 YEAR to get me some...

    The weekend was going good

    until I found out that my M-I-L practised reiki on my son. Something that we don't believe in and don't want her messing with. We were so close to having a good weekend. So close. Now I'm just mad.

    We're not married yet, but planning on it. So, I know I'm going to have to deal with these people forever and I'm not sure if that thrills me. At first, I really liked everyone. Then, I got to know them well by spending way more time around them. I really, really like my...

    It's not that I don't like them exactly (and

    they aren't even in laws yet, but it's going to happen soon). It's just that they're constantly in our business and they blow things WAY out of proportion and constantly want my girlfriend to leave me and come back "home"... Like last night her Aunt was here, and she and I...
