    My in laws are fucking exhausting. I don’t even have the energy for details but if you have in laws (or parents) who can lead an adult life without making their children problem solve for them, you are lucky. (About to text some love to my super competent mom.)

    S and E wanted to play dress up after dinner last night. Immediately cue "why are you wearing a skirt, that's for giiiiirls" from a family member.

    Not in my house Buster.

    W had to work a half day today and then met his brother at his dad’s place to clean it out (he won’t be going back for a few reasons). It’s only a room, not even a full apartment, and allegedly it was just clothes and some important papers that they could put in his car. 3.5 hours, both of them actively working, and six rolling garbage containers later.... W has to miss my race tomorrow to go back down there to finish. I just texted my mom to thank her and her husband for being competent adults.
