Blogging and Winter

Back to blogging... Man, I'm so bad at keeping up with these things. I forgot I even had a blog until I read a friend's. Then I had the sudden desire to start writing in it again.
You want to know one thing I hate about winter? It completely takes away my ability to consume ice cream. I love ice cream and all it's sweet goodness. But central Illinois winter is just too cold. I can't handle it. I have a hard enough time defrosting after I come inside. I really want some mint chocolate chip right now.

I heard this woman the other day badmouthing her daughter-in-laws. She didn't have one nice thing to say about them to me. It was really sad. It made me start to worry. I love Kyle's mom. She's really great. His whole family is. But what if she said things like that about me behind my back the way this woman did? That would be terrible. I hope that I don't have to spend the rest of my life living up to the kind of trivial expectations this woman had, or to have someone talking behind my back about what I should be doing to raise my kids better. Something tells me I won't have to. Kyle's mom has more class than that. I hope that if she had a problem with me, she would say something, rather than badmouth me to everyone else in the family, or tell all her friends what a bad wife and mother I am. It was quite crappy of this other woman to do that. Whether she was right or wrong about what she said, it was overruled by the fact that she was wrong for saying it to me. I'm learning more about the kind of mother-in-law I want to be to my future childrens' future spouses.
Wow. Those were two completely random topics...
