Cat got your tongue?

in


Tongue tied. What can I say?
Well the pressure is on now - dear FTS has sent folks my way and I'm feeling like i've been caught with my pants down,for lack of a better expression. Oh but as usual I can give you plenty of excuses why. I have been dealing with my mother-in-law, whom i really like, before you get me wrong. Actually i probably(really) get along better with her than I do my husband. She is 86 and really with it, fun to be around, funny and no problem at all - she even cleans my house. She lives alone in NJ and we've been trying to get her to move near one of her 4 kids for years. Her apartment situation is not good at all and she came up about a week ago to revisit an independent living place in our town and agreed to take the apt.; we even picked rug and wall colors, talked about celebrating, jumped up and down and then I come home from taking the boy to sunday school and she announces she's having second thoughts. So- many hours/phone call to the other siblings and we are still no closer to a resolution. As my mother would've said,"Que sera sera" - What will be, will be. That said, I must say it was a thrill to discover that I was FTS's Blog of the week. Thanks FTS and welcome anyone who stops by, I will try and be properly dressed next time you stop by.

FTS really SHOULD give a little more warning. At least you only got caught with your pants down, I got caught getting out of the shower!

FTS said...

Aw, the place looks fine. You should see MY place...

FTS does have a way of catching people off guard! At least he didn't sneak into your kitchen and try to cook something for you!

Congrats!
