Lets keep Jerry and Montel out of this!
I love my wifes family, but her Grandparents have 5 son-in-laws and most of them are type-A personalities. I like all of them including the ones whose politics and religion are 180 degrees from mine. I just get tired of all of the complaining about having to put up with so-in-so for a few hours (I don't want to know what they say about me when I am not around). Oh no, I'm BECOMING ONE OF THEM! AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Meanwhile, back in Arkansas.....
My family gets along with everybody (in-law's, ex-spouses, roommates, live-ins) and our motto is "The More The Merrier!" and it usually is a packed house, aukward moments aside.
So if any of you find yourself in Hot Springs, AR next Thanksgiving or Christmas, your invited to Grandma's. We'll bring the patio furniture in (if it isn't already) and make a seat for you (RSVP a couple hours before WalMart closes incase we need another can of cranberry sause or green beans- we'll be OK on Ham and Turkey)
