Okay. I'm confused. How come the fact that I can't keep my kitchen clean means I shouldn't own a house, but I should adopt a child?

Does this make any sense at all?


I just don't understand humans. I just *don't*. Because I just spent a half hour trying to explain this to my own mother, and she doesn't see the logical discontinuity at all. (Although she also thinks I should own a house.)

I agree. You should own a house. And you should adopt a child. If you feel up to it.

I see the logical discontinuity. It's a crock. The hardest part for me, in your shoes, would be finding the polite way to convey that message.

Being a poor housekeeper is not a good enough reason to subject yourself to the whims and iron grip of a condo or coop board, rather than being able to handle your house as suits you. Don't buy into it, and don't let your MiL get you off track.
