One of my biggest complaints is the opposite of what most you have. I WANT to spend more time with my il's. I have no other family here and have so disappointed in the past few decades at their lack of involvement in our lives. Lately however my mil has really seemed to want to spend time with us. She said she wants to attend the kids programs (which she has never shown interest in before) and to let her know when (she doesn't say things she isn't going to do like my step mil does) The kids are so excited. She also invited dh and I to lunch where she works and we went yesterday and it was awesome. I hope we can continue to enjoy each others company. :) Just thought I'd put some good in when there is some.
