    do okay in the in-law department as well -- I know I complain a lot about my mom-in-law being a pain in the proverbial backside, but the vast majority of our marriage she's been awesome. I got along with my parents-in-law far better than I did my own mother; they were progressive Democrats long before I was even hatched, and my mother...well, less said about that the better. (I sometimes wonder if she'd had Dad around longer if he would have mellowed her a bit; he was a Republican but not all that doctrinaire about it IIRC.)

    Still miss my father-in-law greatly, but since he died Mr. Scribe has really stepped up and matured; the two of them have much in common when it comes to taking care of their women. :-)

      I never doubted for an instant that you didn't love your mother-in-law. I know venting when I see it. What your family went through wouldn't have been possible without you caring a great deal about her. It's always been clear.

        and my pizza's salty enough -- they replaced our windows and sliding door today as part of the apartment renovation so no chance to cook. Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers and olives so I'm getting my veggies at least. ;-)
