Chinese prob: "在家靠父母，出外靠朋友！！"(The best shelter is hiding in parent's house but friends are whom you can rely on when away from home!!)
Indeed, I even asked my church buddy, Linda, to come over to my house to FIX our problem when DH and I had huge fights during in-laws' stay!!!!
Too much details to explain what had happened to my parents over the phone and too hard to finish a whole sentence when talking to DH!!! :P
So someone DH and I both respect/trust would certainly be the best mediator!!!
Now I think I own Linda a huge Thanks and I think I need to Give her my best regards over the phone immediately!! ^O^
