    Mothers In Law

    Hide the smokes, hide the beer…

    Sweep the dust bunnies under the chairs.

    Now take a shower and comb your hair…

    Don’t forget to put on clean underwear.


    Wash the dishes don’t put them away…

    She’ll rearrange them within a day.

    The laundry basket piled sky high…

    She’ll make sure they're washed and dried.


    Prepare yourself for this special occasion…

    Though it may feel like a home invasion



    Honey, did I forget to mention to you

    That my mother is coming to spend a week or two.

    Ha Ha Ken - I hope you are enjoying your freedom and peace...LOL, I agree, and too add just something about the nature of a 'Mother-In-Law' they're an interesting species are they not...LOL...? There a very find line between being protective/helpful and butting in...where they don't belong...LOL I suppose for some, they are so bored and/or have destroyed their own relationships, they can't wait to ruin another...LOL. Peace, Love and Light...Shinning Knight:)

    LOL, this is funny. My wife doesn't like it when my mother cleans the windows. I am too happy to get her some Windex and some paper towels. I think she wants to feel useful.



    Hey Moot, you make me smile:) Would you please send your mother to my home...I'm be happy to get her some supplies too...LOL. I love it when folks are useful; it's the interferring that bugs me...Now I wouldn't mind it if someone sticks their nose in a bottle of Windex...LOL but when they stick their nose in other people's personal affairs/business...that's when I feel like cleaning the floor up with them...LOL. Peace, Love and Light.

    That is definitly funny! I don't know if they sell them anymore, maybe online somewhere. But it's mother in law in a bag and it has sayings and stuff. It's funny you should check into it and give it to your mother in law jokingly and lovingly of course. That's if she can take a joke. Some people cant or keep it in your house for her to see when she visits...



    thanks Worthful - thanks for the tip but she can't take a joke...LOL

    Agghhh! Egads! Help! Haha! This is all too true, i'd a mother-in-law once upon a time, she was my nightmare from day 1, I never had to sleep to have a nightmare since she was around every single day. Agghhh! Haha!



    StandingBear Mothers In Law are from a different species:) Some folks get lucky and have wonderful Mothers In Law and others mays well call them out-laws:) When one weds, it becomes a package deal and some end up with In-Laws that are so unreal...many a sleepless nights:( I'm assuming you are amancipated from this nightmare?:) Well Halloween is coming up so celebrate...get all the brooms out of the closet:) and dusk off the rotten cobwebs of memories of Mothers In Law from hell:) Peace Love and Light

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
