"Welcome to WiseWomenUnite.com -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."


What this site meant to me

Oh, come on Chickie, you know we'd all get to gabbing and then we'd get all sidetracked and before we knew it the house would be a disaster from all the projects we'd start and not finish - Luise would have to send us all (all? 200? how many of us are there now?) out for ice cream so she could get something done, LOL!

But seriously, I do wish we could 'ping' ourselves there for you, Luise, and anywhere else we were needed. It really puts things into perspective - some of those petty things I get "livered" about (love it) just don't matter. Thank you for reminding us what life is really all about. I need that swift kick in the attitude every now and then. Love you!

And the truth about Pings, of course, is that you all here right now!

I have to admit, if we all lived together there in 600 sq ft we might all be limping (from stepping on eachother's toes!) ;) 

But it is such a nice thought!  Any motels nearby Luise? 

Luise?

Luise?

Where did she go?  She was just here...

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I was talking with building contractors about turing my quarter of this fourplex into a sky scraper!  :o

Luise, you've got some air mattresses to blow up - about 200, I reckon. *Huff, puff*

I am new to WiseWomenUnite......but I need to tell all of you, this site is the best.
As I sat and read the posts as a "guest" over the past few days, I had this sense of feeling like I knew you ladies.
Some of the posts had me laughing out loud, while others had me bawling. Your pain is my pain.
So many times, I felt like I was the only person who felt like I did about certain family members, however, after visiting this site, I know I am not alone.

I am not computer savvy, so I am not sure I can figure out the posting, but I am going to try.
Keep up the great work.    :)

Welcome MX - You did just fine. I've been here since day one...Mother's Day of 2009, and I still have more to learn regarding using the software. We are here for you and our hearts are open!  :)
