A fathers day

Since I don't have my dad with me anymore, I went to in my in-laws for most of the day. We had a BBQ and we had a good day... Normally I am so uncomfortable being there for long. But today it was not bad. My mother in law got to talking about about my daughters grad party next year and she actually told me she wanted to pay for the all of the graduation stuff.. I about crapped my pants.. She normally sends the kids money for b-day's and holidays and just because but for her to do this for my daughter that is not her real grandchild blew me away...

My relationship with her has not been the best and she has recently been ill and very close to death, but she pulled through.. Since she got well, her attitude has changed and she has been really friendly and it scares me..LOL when the relationship became strained, I was like screw her and I do not want to go there, but since changing a few things in my life, I have decided to kill her with kindness..LOL so far it has not been to bad...

Where I area that I live in I can look across the river and see canada(the indian reservation) and after we got home tonight, some kind of holiday must have been happening in canada because they was shooting off fireworks and we sat out in our yard and watched them, it was really nice..

I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed your time with you fathers or hubbys...


  1. hey if she wants to pay for it...let her! 1 less thing off your back!

    So S is graduating next year. OMG!! where have all these years gone. two of my nephews graduates next year too. One in Philly and the other in California. Maybe I'll hit the lottery and try to attend both....if they are not on the same weekend! (Knock on wood, they probably are!)

    its nice to see that people can change...wish everyone who can, would. Know what I mean?!

    Glad you had a good time.

  2. Kill 'em with kindness...that is always what my mother tells me, and with my MIL here this weekend I really had to use those words too!:-) Glad your BBQ was nice. Love fireworks can't wait to see them on the 4th!

  3. Hi, I'm visiting from MBC. Great blog.

  4. I say let her pay! We had a good weekend hubby worked for father's day so we cooked and made him a cake for when he got home. Thanks for coming by my blog.

  5. Wow...what a blessing for her to offer that! Maybe she's trying to make up for your relationship since being so sick recently. I think going through that could change anyones "attitude." I encourage you to embrace it, and just love on her!! You will be blessed!

  6. Sounds like a great day! You did the right thing by being kind to her...maybe it rubbed off on her!
