I forgot to mention that That Stud Muffin I Married, my kids and I were heading to Santa Cruz/San Francisco for TSMIM's cousin's wedding.
Except they are Santa Cruz hippies so they eloped to Hawaii on Valentine's Day.
But still. We're CELEBRATING. And all the cousins are there.
Which means that my husband, whose mother, a nice Jewish girl, went mental in the sixties and ran away from her husband and children and became a Hare Krishna, has now had the chance to meet his cousins whose mother went mental in the sixties and ran away from her husband and children and became a Jesus freak.
Believe it or not, it was actually enjoyable to meet them all.
Either I'm more counter-culture than I thought, or I enjoy being able to dish the dirt about my mother in law with people who really understand what my husband went through.
