What should I do?

My sister-in-law told me that she checks blogs a lot and that they don't change very often. Well, I'm going to fix that now. On Monday Courtney and I kidnapped our friend Annie to have a fun night without kids. We went out for dessert and went to a couple of stores. We didn't buy anything, except for food, but it was so nice to just talk and hang out. I had to make a quick stop at home half way through the night, but Bethany is worth it. James said I could do it again soon, even making a habit of it. Since we didn't spend any money and he approves of my friends.

While we were talking, I did some thinking. Am I too quite? I don't think so with my friends, but sometimes I feel like I am with family. Shouldn't I be more honest with them then anyone else? Let me give you the example: My wonderful mother came and visited me for almost a week. During her stay she would under mind me. If I told one of my kids no, she (who was sitting next to me) would say yes. My kids started to ask her for things. I didn't say anything at the time, I didn't want to fight. Well, James and I were talking about it later, and he said that we just won't visit home as often. I don't like the idea of ignoring my parents without them knowing, but I really don't want to fight. What should I do? This is just one example of actions I don't approve of. I feel I should have said something, but we've fought about this before. Any ideas? If I need to speak up about this, should I be more honest on other things? Please help me!

Thankfully Home Alone

After almost two weeks of constant visitors, we're alone in our home again. I love my family and I'm so gratefully for all that they've done for us these past weeks. I'm so glad that they're gone. Actually I really enjoyed my sister coming with her kids. Our kids got along great and I didn't feel bad about her helping out. Probably because it was stuff I needed done. I really wish she could have stayed longer, but it hard being away from one's hubbin. Now I just have to find everything they put away for me. Why doesn't anyone think exactly like me?
I'm also a little bummed. My wonderful mother-in-law hasn't really seen my newest joy except five minutes in the hospital because my father-in-law needed to get something from there. I shouldn't complain because she did take my boys for a couple of days. I guess it's nothing new to her. Just a little complaint. Over all life is good, because right now my house is quite!
