I Hate My Inlaws!

Yes, she DOES know better...

DH's eyes have been opened WIDE these past few years in regard to how his mother manipulates people, especially her sons.

Her latest 'thing' is to interfere w/ my daily phone call to DH. DH & I speak once a day while I'm at work just to see how our respective days are going & to figure out dinner plans. We call each other at a specific time everyday, & we have been doing this for YEARS. & MIL knows this. Now she's started calling DH FIVE MINS before DH & I have our daily check-in w/ each other. So he spends a few mins listening to her gossip about the same family BS that's been going on for YEARS (BIL's dysfunctional family - a whole other story), then DH spends the next several mins trying to get off the phone so he & I can talk. Per MIL, this is me "controlling" HER son. I am a F/T working professional, so I have to make the effort to keep a few mins available everyday at the same time for our phone call. I can't just randomly take personal calls anytime I wish. DH & I planned our call time together, which works GREAT for us, so, naturally, MIL has to try to crap all over that. See, we've managed to keep her at a comfortable arms-length when it comes to our lives, & she HATES THAT. We've stopped her from sabotaging several of our personal plans (she tried to ruin our plans to visit my family earlier this year after I hadn't seen my family in 7 YEARS!), so now she's using desperate measures to keep her control over everyone. & she's losing. & it's driving her batty. Awwwww...too bad. What a hypocrite.
