Title: 6 words
Post by: keeponsmilin on June 10, 2010, 08:00:06 am
I am a teacher on summer break.  Please forgive my need to issue an assignment. 

Many times, I ask my students to summarize the daily lesson using only six words.  This forces them to cut out the fluff, and focus on the essential material.  Can we do the same? 

Here goes:  In exactly six words, can you describe one (or more) of the following:

1) Why you are on this site
2) What your current MIL/ DIL relationship is like
3) What you are going to do to make it better

I will take a stab at it

1) Proactively working to improve my relationship
2) Not bad, but could be better
3) Assume her intentions are all good


Thanks for playing!   ;) I promise I will not issue grades!

I created it for interactive healing.

1. Supportive posts make this transition healthier.

2. She's very organized; I'm less so.

1)  seeking support and searching for answers
2)  sadly no communication in the least

1) Why you are on this site:   Seeking perspective/understanding from other's experiences.

2) What your current MIL/ DIL relationship is like (It's actually my XH):  Strained, crazy-making:  camel's back broken.

3) What you are going to do to make it better:  My mantra:  This really doesn't  matter.
