Muddy in law

Mar 3, 2008, 3:43 AM |

A week ago there was horrible joke... a whisper in the wind of my mother in law coming to live with us for a while.  Of course it was just a joke...

3 days ago I heard she moved out from her boyfriend's home, and got laid off of her work...

Yesterday came the sock in the stomach. Pennyless and hungry my mother in law will show up on our doorstep on monday night... no doubt overdue bills trailing behind her and...

It will be so good to see her... of course she is welcome. I have weathered a flu, a cold, and a bout of diarrhea so far this year... that which does not kill me... may make me wish for death???

In chess.. when your chips are down... sometimes it's best to muddy the waters.
