and I don't even have one yet but God help me those years are not so far away are they? anywho MIL is out of town and we are helping with nephew Z. He had a football scrimmage this afternoon and we were working with the expectation he would call some time after 9ish when they arrived back at the school and then come here to spend the night. With the wacky weather in the area today scrimmage got cancelled and I got a text around 1 that he would need a 3:30 pick up. Not a big deal as I had come home with a sick C earlier in the day. We pack up and head to the school just before 3:30 and get into the pick up line which at this point was not so very crazy. I get a text from him that he has practice for a little bit. After some cursing under my breath C & I head to the grocery store to pick up something for tonight's dinner and then plan on heading back home except we get the the grocery store and oh well I don't have practice can you come get me? My first thought was hell no are you crazy but I refrained from verbalizing that sentiment and picked him up after we were done at the store
MIL is very weird about giving out the key to her house..no no I mean really weird when David moved out of the house he had to hand in his key. When we moved out of her house(although not her house at the time it belonged to FIL who was letting us live there and there is waaaay more to that whole story but we'll save that for another time) she actually had the locks changed. When family would visit she wouldn't hand out a key they had to rely on her being home and if she went out well they had to vacate as well. She has lightened up somewhat on that especially with BIL & nephew living there currently, I believe they are allowed keys(although nephew is generally not allowed to be there unsupervised if she can at all humanly possible help it) I have bugged her for years that we should have a spare key in case of emergency and she agrees in theory but nooo never actually produces on for me. Locking herself out and having to call a locksmith has not produced a key for us and even when several years ago when she had a freaky eye problem and temporary blindness she would not cough up a key...like I said she is freaky about giving out the house key so when she gave me a key for just in case because she was going to be out of town for a few days I about fell over. And yes I am heading to walmart to make a copy I can put up just in case of emergency

C has lost his glasses and I suppose I should be grateful that it has taken this long I mean he has had them for a whole 6 months already without incident...Guess who is going to have to pay for new glasses with his own money?
