March MILDEW Madness Entry

MIL Dearest:

Remember the “Grandma’s Journal” that we gave to you Christmas 2004 to fill out and complete during all your spare time watching Wheel of Fortune, PGA Tour, bowling, napping, etc., and then give to your grandson? We gave that to you since you have everything you possibly already need and want and thought that being able to pass on your thoughts and “wisdom” to your then two year old grandson since he will probably never remember you – as you are now into your 80’s – something you might find inspirational.

However, when Christmas 2005 came and I saw that the journal was not only sitting in the unused parlor in the exact same spot you left it a year earlier, still in the box, BUT you still had not ONE GODDAMN WORD written in it. Well, just in case you ever notice (bwahahahahahaha!), I took it back and gave it to my mother. She’s nearly completed it, too, ...even though she still works outside the home.

I gave one of those to my MIL for Christmas. That was 1985, and it's still blank.

We gave one to our mil and haven't gotten it back either. Instead when we visit we have to hear about the arthritis, complaints about my husband's (dead) father and gossip about her third cousin twice removed. Come to think of it I should take the book back before she CAN write stuff down!

Thanks for playing along today!

Well not to rag on my own parents but... In 1999, I gave both of them a grandparent journal since their divorced. My daughter was 6 in November still NOTHING in either book!!

My MIL however would fill it with religious goobledy-gook. Luckliy I never gave her one ( 2nd marriage and all so she's not really the grandmom)
