I just had the best Facebook chat conversation with Big A's aunt. I love her so much. She has liked me (or at least seemed to) from the day we met. I liked her immediately, too. Even when my MIL acts like I'm the worst thing that ever happened to her, I know that J loves me and accepts me into the family. It means a lot that her and 2 of my MIL's sisters like me, especially when MIL doesn't (which was kind of confirmed in the conversation tonight that MIL and MIL's youngest sister don't - did they take a poll?).
Nice to have someone on your side in a family.
