It took my SIL almost two whole months at school to decide she wants to swap roommates. That's progress, right? It was 2 weeks last year.

Is she settling in any better at this school?

I know I missed some updates - are she and fiance still together? Is he at the new school, too?

Yes and yes. She got a job doing...something on campus. We haven't heard from her much and she's 8 hours away, so we certainly haven't seen her. It is glorious.

My in-laws have been doing better as well. They both stopped smoking (again) and seem to be coming out of their depressive hazes a bit. It's almost pleasant to talk to them--J's stepdad actually has a sense of humor...who knew? He's been helping us out with a few projects around our house. I'm cautiously optimistic about a relationship with them--I know they're not healthy people, but they're putting forth effort, so...

Sounds like some cautious optimism is in order.

Pffft, they can't become normal or even semi-normal! If that happens, all we will have are my neighbors for some excitement.

Dear Prudence

This is the letter that is making the news on the websites about drinking and rape.

Her whole column is very long. I'll put the other letters up separately

Ah, I'm sure it's not the end of it. If my SIL ends up getting married next year(god, what a horrible idea), there will be buckets and buckets of drama.

Speaking of neighbors, my least favorite one is moving out today! Everything is coming up Matilda! His wife and kids are nice, but he's kind of an idiot. Revs everything with a motor, parks his 4 vehicles everywhere BUT in his garage or driveway, talks really loud on his cellphone constantly.

Now you can only hope that the devil you know is worse than the devil you haven't met yet.
