Ok...so I suppose this deserves an update. She came for her visit and the intention was for it ot be the last one....welllll...it wasn't it. We didn't fight the entire time she was here. It was pretty unbelievable, but I now know we can do it. We are still in disagreement about a very important topic, but we aren't sscreaming at each other about it. I think we learned something very valuable and I am very happy about it. I am pretty sure that we could still be friends even if this doesn't work out.
Thanks so much for the kind words. At some point I might just have to really explain the WHOLE story. I just don't have the time right now.
