Had a great evening with my 2 sons. They are now in bed sleeping.

When I picked them up, I was at my most pleasant best. WW was wondering what was up. I just said I had a great week and day. Gave her a hug.

Later, when the boys called to say goodnight... it was very late, around 1:00 am. WW had been on the phone for a while. She sounded tired... I said so and asked how she was. She sounded very cold. My gut is that my emails to MIL and SIL were unsuccessful and MIL was telling her about it. If that is so, I am not surprised. MIL would rather take the easy route then look at what is really needed. She can't condemn her daughter without condemning herself. She would rather her daughter just be happy then safe and good... that would create conflict and would be bad for her heart.

The idea that my emails had failed had a very short negative affect on me. Then I remembered that this was a war with a long fight. This was not a setback, as I did not really expect their help.

On to planning for the next skirmish.
