Tomorrow will be day 1,013 that we've lived in this house. It will also be day 312 that my mother-in-law has not lived in the house. There was a blow-out on Thursday and the line, crossed so long ago, became a straw that broke. She would be out of this house by the end of this weekend, no matter what. And she is. This will be the first time that the four of us will be living together - alone - ever, since she's been here the whole time Ben's been with us, living in what was to be his nursery. A weight has been lifted.
