I realize that in the grand scheme of things, these vents mean nothing. However, it'll make me feel better to type them. LOL Vent #1: Last night my father in law called and invited he and his wife over to our house for dinner on Thanksgiving. I was looking forward to a very low-key day on Thursday. DH is on vacation this week, and I start a new job next week. I like my in-laws well enough, but there's also a long story attached to the fact that they were looking for some place to eat on Thursday, namely the fact that for the last 15 years they've hardly bothered with us because they prefer DH's younger brother and his family. We've accepted this fact, but it's kind of funny now that DH's brother and the wife are separated, therefore not having dinner at their house, that FIL calls US and invites them (he and his wife) over for dinner. Ah well. It could be worse. Like I said, this is a minor vent. Vent #2: Our neighbor is leaf-blowing leaves onto our front yard. He's forming a perfect line between our lawn and his, where his section is spotless and ours has the leaves on it. This is so totally not worth even talking to the neighbor about because he's an older retired gentleman whose wife will not allow him to smoke his nasty cigar in the house, so he spends his hours outside working on his lawn. LOL I should add that yesterday DS24 cleaned up all of the leaves on our property so it's not as if our lawn is covered with leaves. This guy is just neurotic with his lawn. lol Thanks. Vent over.
