At the end of January, we found out that my Father in Law was having surgery....a big one at that. My FIL is an Veteran & started coming to the VA hospital here in Pittsburgh. (Not sure I ever actually said where I live. Yep, I'm a "Yinzer")
My in-laws live about 2 hours away in the country, so us living here in the city has definitely worked out for everyone. I have spent the last 2 months going back & forth, spending a week at a time in no man's land. I will say that you learn a lot about yourself being away from home for so long. My most important lesson, I am NOT as big of a fan of the city as I thought I was. As I get older, I realize I enjoy the quiet much more! It helps me think & be creative, being in the country.
Unfortunately, I was not able to blog while I was away. My wonderful niece & nephews had given my in-laws computer a virus or two. Just more time to read & learn a few things. In the weeks to follow, I will be sharing my newly learned recipes from my MIL and even one from my extremely picky SIL. I also have been mastering the art of cup-less jello shots! Which were a big hit this last weekend, by the way.
