Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. I suppose it's useless to say that we don't get along as well as I'd like. I want to like her. I really do. What bothers me is the way I've seen her treat her son and the way she's treated me.
Anyway, getting past that, which is what I'm trying to do today, I have decided to fix a bowl of my Absolutely Fabulous Potato Salad and get her a nice present at Wal-Mart. I'm hoping that I pick out something she'd like.
After that, I have loads of work to do, again. The living room needs clearing and the dishes need doing and the stove needs cleaning etc etc. I want to clean off the stove first because I can be doing the other things while the potatoes and the eggs are cooking. More later, I suppose.
