My In-Laws Just Left {Gratituesday-Posted Late}

I'm not thankful for the fact that my husband's parents just left; rather, I'm thankful we were able to spend Friday-Tuesday with them.  I worked at the hospital on Friday, so they watched Charis while Drew was working on his dissertation.  I'm thankful that I did not have to do any dishes while they were down with us.  I came home to a clean kitchen and take out Chinese food on Friday.

On Monday, they stayed with Charis so that I could take part in the yearly competency fair at the hospital, and yes, I am still able to work there.  Afterwards my MIL, Charis, and I went to my favorite thrift store.  I was able to look around by myself, since Charis was watched by her Grandma.

Do you get along with your in-laws?  I do!  Yes, we may have our small disagreements, but I'm pleased to be their daughter-in-law.  Of course we we friends LONG before Drew and I were married.

Note: I meant to post this on Tuesday, March 6 {for Gratituesday}, 
but accidentally saved it and decided to go ahead and post it.

  2. Our family is blessed to have grandparents close by to help, although my kiddos are old enough now to stay home for a while on their own. It is a tremendous blessing and help to have in-laws with whom you not only get along, but love. :)

    1. Yes, it is. We {eventually} want to move back to Pennsylvania, and both my parents, his parents, and his sister and her husband live in the same town about 3 miles {at most} from each other.

  3. That's great that you have a good relationship with your in-laws! I don't have a bad relationship with mine but I must admit that I am a little unhappy with some of them currently. I hope that will change soon :)

  4. No, no I don't but I don't get along with my parents either. The funny thing is I enjoyed them prior to having children, now I just think how much they are missing by not being involved. I am told I expect too much of them, but I can't disagree more. My kids haven't seen them in over a year and they could care less. I'm so happy to hear that good relationships happen - someday I hope that works for me when I am the MIL.

  5. I was friends with my inlaws long before their son took an interest in me, as well. :) And they're awesome. :)

    1. Same here! And our parents knew each other before any of them had children.

  6. That's great you have a wonderful relationship with them. I have a great relationship with mine too. We were able to take a spontaneous trip to visit them this weekend.

    Stopping by from Manic Mommy Monday. Now following on Google Friend Connect.

  8. I am a little envious of your relationship with your inlaws! I'm sorry to say this, but I pretty much hate mine...technically we aren't married, but still. They hate me as well because I won't take our kids or myself to their moms house because her, her sister and her mom smoke up a storm inside and smoke pot in the house all of the time. Even if they don't smoke when I am there, I still puke when I leave. I am definitely not going to take my kids into a smokers house. That's one choice I definitely have as a parent. John and I have agreed on this, but his family hates me for it.
