Okay so my mother in law called yesterday and said "I haven't talked to y'all in days. Are y'all okay. 

Well I spoke to her on Saturday and attempted to call on Sunday but did not leave a message. I told her, sorry, it is just been nuts around her.  She knew my son had the tummy bug and I told her he is better and the girls are fine but that Mondays are nuts around here. Homework ,chores etc etc. She said okay, just like to hear from you or I worry. Mind you, it had been only a couple of days, 3 at the most.

So I called her this morning in the midst of our day off from school due to teacher work day. I talked a few minutes, then noticed someone left the milk out. So I said "hang on a minute", pulled the phone from my ear and called their full names to get up here and put this milk away.  Then went back to talking to her. Then two of them were arguing, so I said "hold on a minute", pulled the phone away and corrected them..........and so on. She laughed, but you know..........she was so ready to go and said "Okay I hear you are busy, so I will let you go". LOL LOL........now maybe just maybe she gets why I do NOT always call her EVERY day. LOL LOL LOL

Worked like a charm.

    She sounds like my father. He calls me every single day at least 3 times. God fobid I don't answer at least once he freaks out the next day. Crazy thing is we were never close still arnt I just think he's lonely since my mom passed away. So I feel guilty but at the same time he annoys the shit out of me

    I hear ya. They are so good to us but I don't like to have to "report" in every day.  I am glad we have them, but I honestly am not ignoring them if I don't call.  It is a hard balance to find.

    That was good that she got a glimpse of your daily life and hopefully in the future she will not worry about you in the future if you do not call for a couple of days.
