Independence Issues

Mil, Bil and my sister in law are coming up Friday.

Bil will have several experiences.  Friday, we'll be going to a casual pizza restaurant.  Saturday, everyone is invited to my local brother in law's lake home.  We haven't been there in several years. The family will stay there overnight.  So Bil will need to stay in a place he hasn't been to more than a handful of times.
Will it be violent?  Truly we have no way of knowing. 
Probably he will spend the entire time watching TV while the rest of us have a BBQ.

It will be interesting to see what turns conversation takes.

I've been reading an interesting book called The Daughter Trap about daughters and eldercare issues.  It is a lot more than a rant about the sacrifices daughters make to take care of elderly parents-a lot more.  My husband and I (he hasn't read the book) discussed some points brought up by the book during our exercise walk yesterday evening and he shared some things Mil has told him that he hadn't before.

Mil is complaining a lot about "boredom".  We both suspect she is depressed, which is not unusual.  More on that in our next post.

Anyway we will see what happens this weekend.
