I Hate My Inlaws!

Why is it always a contest with you?

MIL, I'm not trying to compete with you. I'm your son's wife and we're just trying to make a life together. We would involve you in our lives more if you weren't such a controlling, manipulative, critical person. DH knows what you've been saying about me and my family. DH is the one who decided to distance us from you once he realized how two-faced you could be. How dare you trash-talk my family during a time of crisis (my sister had a miscarriage) when you only met them once at our wedding years ago, especially when there is blatant incest and sexual abuse occurring on your side of the family.

This past Thanksgiving was hosted by my DH's nephew and his wife. It was decided that it would be a potluck. I was assigned to make the pies, and MIL was assigned to make the sweet potatoes. MIL shows up with THREE pies in addition to the sweet potatoes. So now there are SEVEN pies for dessert between ten people. She made pumpkin pie, apple pie, and cherry pie, the exact three pies that everyone knew I was making. I didn't tell anyone I was also making a pecan pie, and that was the only pie MIL didn't duplicate. The kicker of it all? My pies were devoured. MIL's pies? They were barely touched after people had a taste of them. Her pies were bland and one was even under-cooked. MIL turned it into a baking competition between her and me and she lost and I won without me even knowing there was going to be a contest. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!
