How sad for you

Posted on Mon, May. 09, 2016 at 04:47 am

FIL... I'll always remember how you just sat back and shrugged your useless shoulders when your horrible second wife continued to sew strife into the family between me in particular (DH too) and everyone else. Your other 2 selfish and useless sons sat back and/or condoned everything while their wives did the same--but I guess I just became the new target since I was different from your clan and showed that I wasn't happy with the treatment; you and your wife had already singled out DH long before I came along so singling out someone wasn't new for you.

I also remember when everything came to a head because of that monster you're with (and the other two troll wives who ran with all the strife she wanted to create) you nonchalantly said to DH "well I don't know what's going to happen now. I love my wife and you love yours." Creep. The only difference was i'm not only dh's wife but the mother of your grandchildren! After over 3 years, perhaps you're finally getting it since you've been rightfully removed from their lives because of all of the toxicity you've condoned. Even your wife seems to be a lot 'friendlier' these days when she grabs the phone from you to talk to DH. You even told DH on the phone to wish me a Happy Mothers Day as if that will ever make up for the years of grief you caused me and my family (even when you were removed). You're a sad sad man. By willingly remaining passive like your sons while these low life women were causing trouble and destroying relationships with other family members to make themselves feel superior and important, you willingly signed away your privilege of being a part of my children's (and your son's) life. Now you know what happens when your son 'loves his wife' who happens to be the mother of his children. So yes... Happy Mother's Day to me. Seems you have finally realized a little too late that I am indeed a mother you should have had more respect and regard for!

Mother's Day

Posted on Mon, May. 09, 2016 at 04:08 am

It was so stressful picking out a card to give you. Everything about it is so fake and it just kills me. By the way, you're welcome for the gift you never thanked me for. Come on, seriously, do you really think your son takes the time to go out and get a card and gift for you? I know in your warped mind you would like to think that. You are a horrible, selfish, fake, two-faced miserable woman. Part of me feels bad it's like this, but you created it yourself. Please get counseling and grow up! You and I will never have a normal relationship because of all the things you have pulled over the last 30 years. I have come to a point where I can't even hide my contempt for you anymore. Like I said, please get help for yourself!

Last Straw

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 09:55 pm

This is the final mother's day we even bother with you. None of your other sons or your daughter visited you... except my DH because he felt bad for you. After today he left pissed off at you because you can't fix your own problems... and yet you tell DH and you expect him to spend time with us. NOPE! you drank and smoked. And my daughter pushed you away, which made my day honestly, because you're not fit to be her grandmother! You forgot her birthday too, but can remember your favorite granddaughter birthday in a heart beat. I'm sure DH learn his lesson. After we left, we went to MY mom house for dinner. I stayed there all day compared to the thirty minute visit we had with you. And no, we don't want your damn cat as a gift. DH agreed to stop visiting you after today! Happy day!

Your beef is with me not the kids

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 09:03 pm

My il's are a bunch of jackasses. I hate them and they can't control me so we are of no use to each other. When I stopped talking to them they stopped acknowledging their grandkids. Dd had prom, 54 likes on fb not one from the il's. My dd checked, she said she was sure gm would share the pics. Mil, the rotten old bitch, liked a pic her friend shared of her and her date. That's right. The friend mil doesn't even know and the friends date mil doesn't even know is the only pic mil liked. Not any of the ones of dd and her date. That's why I quit talking to you. It's because you are a gossiping,vindictive, omg I can't think of a word bad enough to call you! Oh I hated you before but to treat a kid like shit for something they have absolutely no control over? Your losing in the long run. This doesn't hurt me. It pisses me off but Im glad you are showing your true colors because one day in a few years my dd might have a baby and she will remember this when you decide your tantrum is over and you want to see your great grand baby and I'll be reminding dd of this day, all of the phone calls she didn't get, her accomplishments that were ignored. You f'ed up with me, the second generation and I'll make sure the third generation doesn't experience your evil.

Great Mother's Day

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 07:35 pm

It was a great mother's day this year.. because we didn't spend it with you!!!

This year mother's day, we did not spend any single minute with you. We did not get you a present, we did not even say happy mother's day! We didn't even speak with you!

I'm so happy. I feel so great that I did not have to pretend to like you.

I plan to fill a plastic bottle with Gasoline, pour it over my FIL's head and light him up. That's it, no more problems! :)

My husband's uncle has called him twice regarding paying capital gains taxes on a vacation property they recently sold. . Instead of paying a professional to do his taxes as we do, he would rather pick my husband's brain. Can't say I'm surprised. It's typical of my husband's family to expect something for nothing. Grow up, nothing in this life is for free.

He said it...

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 07:19 am

"I can't decide if I'll text my mother & wish her happy Mother's Day or not"

"(Lol) I wouldn't do it too early."

"She "liked" what I said about you yesterday"

"She just did that so you'd remember she existed."

"I know it. I might make her sweat. I'll wait until 11:59 tonight."

Bahahaha. Sorry MIL but he's a product of your raising.

Open Letter to my Husband's Aunt Mean & Uncle Snob

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 04:51 am

Dear Aunt Mean and Uncle Snob,

As the aunt and uncle of my husband, you are considered, at most, my extended relations through marriage. I.e., I don't feel any obligation to see you, and our relationship is purely dependent on how we treat each other.

Snob, I can't recall a time when you've ever been mean to my face. Thank you for that. Once you were incredibly nasty, but I don't think you meant for me to know about it. That was when you mocked my wedding in a FB post, and your (even snobbier?) son tagged me in it. I guess that's the kind of thing that happens when you're in the habit of talking shit about people. I forgive you for that one since I'm sure your head is full of animosity that you normally wouldn't air. That must be a burden for you. You are not a happy person.

Mean, there is absolutely zero chance I'll ever attend one of your parties. You behave like a total freak! Twisting my words around in an endless bid to try and make me look bad? Attacking me if I do what you want, and attacking me if I don't? Why would I even respond when I'm damned either way? It made me laugh out loud when you emailed us expecting us to show up to your housewarming party (and yes, we all know that's what it is!). I realize that your party probably seems like something I'd be cowed into attending, the way you've manipulated it by making it a huge family reunion, but that's because you're delusional. I guess some people do say no to you!

I sincerely hope that the event goes well. Almost everyone in the extended family has been nice (to my face), and I hope they have a good time. Any of them are welcome to visit with us outside of your event, and they know that. Hopefully my absence will be ignored, and you'll all have a great time!

My decision not to attend is purely about self-care. If you're not familiar with the term, it means I'm taking care of my own emotional need not to be around toxic people who have repeatedly been off-the-charts nasty to me.

And since you have been known to bash me to my own children (step-daughter reports feeling very awkward during one of your bashing sessions when she was just a tiny girl), you won't be having access to my son without me personally there.

So that's my RSVP.

To daughters potential Mil

Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2016 at 02:39 am

I gave you a thoughtful mothers day gift.


Have you been a decent human being to me?


It was a reminder that you as a mom have to accept something.

It won't be easy for you but you need to accept that your son is a man now. He loves my daughter. He would appreciate your support.

The current trend of you avoiding spending time with my daughter and trying to cause problems between them is only going only hurt you unless you succeed in breaking them up. Then, your son would resent you.

The meaning of the gift? It is a offering of acceptance of you a fellow flawed human being to be a part of our adult children's life journey together.

My daughter is important to your son. I am showing respect to their relationship by giving you a gift for mothers day. I know your son appreciates me reaching out to you as well. I also listen when he needs to talk about anything. He still needs a mom.

It is up to you. The choice is either be a problem or source of love and relationship support.

Was it not you who said when they started saying that you want grandchildren?

Also, that you want to be there when grandchildren are born? It was you indeed.

My dear, you have blown any chance of that option. My daughter sees you for how you really are.

I pity you. As in the words of a song, "It could of been so beautiful...". Perhaps you could replace the hate in your heart for something better.

I plan on being there for your son and my daughter. You did something right with your son raising him. I am willing to take over and be there as a support system for him since the situation requires it.

I hope your choices work out for you. Sadly, I don't think they will.

What I see happening?

Let's see, you are a former heavy smoker, a current longtime alcoholic, heart attack surviver, and a cancer surviver.

You are evil and selfish.

When you die, the world will be a better place. My daughter will be loving to your son at "his time of loss" but will feel inner joy.

I tried to reach out to you. I offered you friendship. I won't bad mouth you to future grandchildren but won't speak kindly of you either.

It is your choice how you live your life. Now, enjoy that bottle of wine. May it numb your perception of reality. Your life, your choice. Not my problem.

The end
