I called my in-laws "Aunt This" and "Uncle That" for eight years! Used to pick on him for his balding head and pot belly. And if I called my "future" SIL and Mom answered we'd talk like we were friends. Made the transition to "Mom" and "Dad" strangely interesting.

What am I doing? Well today I am mostly "fretting".

I have a job interview tomorrow morning (my first in the past year since I got made redundant). Then this morning, I had a call to say that I had another interview on Wednesday!

Don't get me wrong, I am VERY excited. But also on tenterhooks!

You're stretched tight in the wind?

Good luck on your interviews. Maybe things will go well and you'll have your pick.

I just took my pup out to poop. Things went well...
She has taken residency by my foot, which has really put Pierce at odds. Maybe he's on tenterhooks, too.
