Challenges of living with In-laws
Who doesn't love their in-laws?!?!?! If you don't, you should. I do love mine. They care deeply for us and have given us a lovely place to rent with our own kitchen, baths, and laundry. The one thing you're going to have to watch out for is the stuff. If you are a minimalist, cation, this is going to take you for a ride. They love to buy and buy and buy for you....espcially the kids. Then you'll also want to watch out for throwing things away. With all their retirement and quirkiness they'll dig throught the recycling and poke around in the trash wondering what goodies you're parting with. So...don't let yourself be a horder, but just tread with care as you sever with some of the stuff. And try to help them remember even the best of our "stuff" is just wood, hay, and stubble in light of eternity.
