  •  Cousin It is spelled with 2 T's? Who knew? (6+ / 0-)

    Thank you, {{{Marti}}}.  One of these days I'm going to lose it and yell, "Lady, you're driving me effing nuts!"  I swear, if I ever make myself that miserable, I'll do myself in.

    I learned through SIL that MIL said that "there's nothing going on around here" and "I'd rather live anywhere else but here."  They only have a ton of activities there and she's well taken care of.  Perhaps she'd like to live on the street?

    Very nice diary honoring your husband the other day.  Looking forward to the next one.  Have a great day!

      Felix Silla ( he was a verra silla man!) who was born in Italy, and arrove here not speaking a word of English.  Didn't do him any harm, as I don't think Cousin Itt was very fluent, either!

      Perhaps your MIL is just having trouble adjusting?  Or was she always an old miseryguts?  Some people are like that....even when they're young!!  

      If she doesn't like that life........could I have it, please? :-D

      And, thank you!  I'm working on the next one.  Fingers crossed.

      Happy Humpity Hump!

        I've started following you.

        go on Jeopardy!

        Apparently, little things have always bothered her; I've just never had the pleasure of experiencing them before.

        "My ears are cold."
        "There's a draft."
        "My socks are too tight."
        "The light's too bright."
        "My bottom hurts."
        "The Life Alert necklace bothers my neck."
        "These tissues are too rough."
        "The seats on the shuttle bus are too hard."

        Shut up already, lady!

        And, yeah, she is having trouble adjusting, but we thought she'd bounce back after FIL died.  He never let her have any friends, he made all the decisions, and they never did anything except go out to lunch almost every day.  You'd think she'd be having a ball now, but no.  Heck, I'd live there and go on field trips out to dinner, to the casino, to S.F., and to the Ugly Dog Contest in Sonoma, play Wii bowling and Bingo.  They have a hairdresser onsite and a shuttle bus to take them to appts. and to church. Musicians come and play for them all the time.  You can lead a horse to water...

        •  whoa! Maybe it's too many choices. That happens (3+ / 0-)

          with kids and breakfast cereals, and with deciding what to wear.
          Sometimes.
          Some kids.

          Heck, she's got a better deal than a whole boatload of folks I know!

          You made me laugh, though:

          You can lead a horse to water...
          Reminded me of one of my dear mum's:
          You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

          :-D

          Yeah, the coffee is kickin' in!
