Got Word Yesterday…

My inlaws called Hubby Sunday, asking if he could come over this week to chat. They said they had “some things” they wanted to talk to him about. Of course, Hubby’s first thought was that this is the annual “Why Don’t You Bring the Kids Over to See Us” vent that they do, almost like clockwork. These “meetings” inevitably end up with my mother-in-law yelling at my husband, and then my mother-in-law bursting into tears, and nothing ever getting resolved, because if these people REALLY wanted to see the kids, they would come over and see them, by golly.

They said, “Do you have the time to come over?” Hubby laughed at them and said, “It’s tax season – I’m working about 60 hours per week – and I would like to spend some time with my children each day, so no, I don’t really have the time.” They asked if he could please come over because they wanted his thoughts on “some things”. Finally, he said he would though he had no idea what they were talking about. They hinted that they were thinking of moving out of state and wanted to discuss it.

Moving out of state? Why didn’t you say so in the first place?! Hubby ended up going the very next day, which was last night after a twelve hour day.

Basically, they are moving “somewhere it’s warm” though they don’t know where. They are moving “next week or next year”, though they don’t know when. They will be selling much of their belongings and replacing it when they get there, though I don’t see the point in that. Just get a UHaul – it can’t be cheaper to buy all new stuff.

Whatever. It was a happy day in our neck of the woods…. There will peace in our little valley after all.
