So lately I feel like my life is one big test. I was recently married and now I feel like I am being tested on whether or not I can be a good wife. This test is not coming from my husband, but from his family and mine. Then he is being tested of course to make sure he will be a good husband. I wonder is this an ongoings test that you only pass after death or at some point do they trust you.

My other test well this is my last week at school for this semester. So I had a test today and my last one is on Wednesday. School has been kicking my butt. I mean being a mom is a 24/7 all by itself add work, husband, me time and well I am tired. It has been worth it though, because in the end I will be able to get a much better paying job.

In other news my job is still crazy Dory has an assistant now and she is basically doing all of her work. Dory might as well stay home for all the work she does. People are leaving left and right at my job in the last year alone I believe that of a crew of 15 we have lost 5 people. Ah well some are missed, if only because there replacement SUCKS!!!!

Now to the down side to my recent marriage me and him are actually doing better than ever, but my grandmother is Highly upset by our union. We eloped and she was not happy about that. I tired to explain that it was about us and we didn't want to wait any longer. She is barely speaking to me and that kind of hurts my feelings. She has always been controlling and judgemental, but since the death of my grandfather it has gotten worse. I think he mellowed her out a little. Hopefully she calms down a little.

Question of the day: How do you deal with your in-laws or your significant others family? I ask because my husbands sister is a BITCH and I a
m trying not to kick her ass. Help!!!

My in-laws only come to visit about once a month and they live over an hour away. It really helps. And just let whatever criticism they have roll off your back and remember that with most parents, no one is good enough for their "baby", no matter how long you have been married. Trust that you know what is best for you and your family and their opinion is just that, their opinion.

Glad to see you're back to posting Caramel! I still haven't given up on Mike & Kyra (haha!). Regarding your question, keep it in prayer, and always take the high road. Now, I don't mean be a doormat, don't allow yourself to be disrespected, and hubby needs to be totally on board with that. My in-laws aren't so bad. If anything, I'd like them to be more involved. Even just to see the kids more often and maybe give us a break. They are only 20 minutes away, after all! Regarding grandma, after the tragedy of losing your grandfather, she was probably looking forward to your wedding and is just sad. Even if she is bossy and ornery! Also, who knows how much longer she's going to be around. You've explained yourself, no need to keep rehashing it.

Take it easy, and congrats! mum
