Thanks QOS-I am sure I will turn here occassionally......even if just for horsey stuff, and my horses are the best huggers in the whole world.
I really hope we can keep both of them. One I ride-the other is retired, but will never be sold, since he has been with us too long and we owe him to live with us until the end. So, it one has to go-it will be the one I ride. Hoping for the best, for sure. Our kids are fabulous and live close, so they will be a huge support, of that I am sure. WE have a very close knit immediate family unit, thankfully. I may have to tell them at some point to back off.....but for now, I will let him handle them.
As far as being a mother in law-I laugh with my daughter in law all the time. They live across the street, and we have an agreement that we do not pop in, etc. But it is nice to know the other is there for sure. When they married I told her the one productive thing my mother taught me. As a mother in law my role is to stand in back and wear beige. Be Switzerland. It works.
Really, all in all we are blessed-just these ladies get to me. If push comes to shove my daughter will tell them where to get off, and none of us want that! Lol
