FIL called and asked if he could come for a visit over the July 4th weekend. And bring his girlfriend. I am not at all excited. I don't want to meet FIL's girlfriend and I sure as heck don't want to spend an entire weekend entertaining her in my house. And, of course, we are wondering just how quickly things are moving with FIL and this woman since FIL is suddenly so determined that we meet her.
But I guess we are just going to have to suck it up and deal, right? I mean, nothing can be worse than watching MIL die, so if we can get through that I suppose that we can get through anything. It just feels like such a betrayal to MIL.
To alleviate some of the awkwardness, we've invited SIL and her family to come down as well. Thankfully, they've agreed. Having 12 people in the house should definitely cut down on the awkward silence moments. I think we'll invite DH's other sibs as well--then we'd really have a full house.
