So we're going on day three of my brother-in-law living with us, and I must say it's going swimmingly. You never know how these things are going to work out. As much as you may like someone at Christmas dinner, or driving through Europe, or even in a Vegas strip club it's a very different thing to continue liking them when they move in. People's living habits are peculiar and can be very difficult to navigate (ask my poor husband... I'm sure he's continually baffled at the way I think the dishwasher should be loaded).
Now, we're still in that very-polite-staying-out-of-each-other's-way-oh-yes-I'll-pick-up-my-towels-honeymoon stage, but all signs bode well for the future. He'll be here for at least a month, then his fiance will join him--either here or in their new home.
So stay tuned for the continuing Adventures of the Doyles' House Guest...
