Re: Stepmonster's Reign of Terror may be ending!

It doesn't seem like Stepmonster is doing well at all. I feel the Schadenfreude and I've never even met her. I'm glad your DH is on board with the minimalism of the contact, but at least this last visit gave you a better glimpse into what's really happening. I don't want to wish ill on anyone but so...

Re: I hate making things for people

Miwako, I know how you feel. I want to volunteer for so many things and there are volunteer things I do every year to help people. However, sometimes I get overzealous or I just say yes to the wrong thing and I regret it. Then it's too late to back down. One notable exception that I learned from: La...

Re: FIL ramping up his crazy on Facebook

What a total a-hole. I wanted to suggest that you could retaliate by posting a few memes of your own, maybe about passive-aggressive behavior or old age or senility, but I don't think it would change things, just ramp them up. I'd say just sit back and enjoy the show. As annoying as it can be, it is...

Re: They want DH to be their slave again

Oh Meimei, I really thought that you guys were off the hook. Even though the PILs can't make you misplace your hard-earned good judgement, or your DH's, just them asking you and guilting you about it is so stressful. Even when my ESIBs had no chance in hell of making us change our minds about leavin...

Re: MIL wants to clean our house

My MIL was not as sly as yours, although she THOUGHT she was. Offering to do something so nice that it is supposed to make you unable to say no is pure evil level manipulation. If your DH wasn't already wise to her motives (with your help, of course) he might be asking you how you could be so callou...

Re: Ding Dong...More News

I Googled EBIL's full name for the first time in a while and an obituary came up. I guess the funeral home recently added it, because it wasn't there last time I checked, 10 days or so ago. It appears he and his wife moved together to the new town her FB page mentioned, then he had a heart attack an...

Re: Interesting Headline

Thank you WTTBT. Your kind words were such a summary of my IL experience. My MIL and FIL at least appreciated me, even if they treated me like I was not of their species. Their Spawn were nothing but ingrates. The ESIBs' requests became entreaties then became demands. Then they were denied . In thei...

Re: FIL's fake birthday

If someone who lies about their age for their whole life, what else would they lie about? Everything! I would say it's a sad legacy he will leave behind someday, but in reality, it's just as he would want, the old sod. The interesting part is that his (would be) misery, which he figured out how to e...

Re: Interesting Headline

And it annoys me that CBIL gets out of paying taxes Me too. There's really no way he can lose the house for taxes or sell the house, unless he pays the probate fees and gets Eddie Munster to agree. CBIL has nowhere else to go, unless he has more cash stashed somewhere. He's already been brought in ...

Re: Interesting Headline

I'll bet the house smells like smoke, dirty underwear and shame. :wink: No doubt! Even worse than it did before ESIL died. In a weird twist, CBIL doesn't owe property taxes in their county because he is labeled disabled and collecting SSDI. It amazes me that as a felon, he can still collect that ch...

Re: Stepmonster may have had a stroke

So sorry for your FIL, but I do appreciate the irony of Stepmonster's callous attitude towards your DH coming back to haunt her. If your FIL is determined to bring her home, that's probably what will happen, more's the pity. His best hope is to have home health come in on a regular basis so that he ...

Re: Well, well... look who tested positive for COVID

You reap what you sow, right? If somebody has to catch it... Irony and Karma can sometimes be our friends. I don't want to wish COVID 19 on anyone, but I also have noted how many people are so cavalier about the risks. Some people are angry at the localities for imposing rules and are making fun of ...

Re: Ding Dong...More News

Thanks, Jiggly, I think you're right about keeping it under my hat. I'm the first to admit that I may be creating quite a work of fiction about all of it to be sure. If I had the guts to create a fake FB persona, maybe I could see a bit more without friending any of them. Does anyone know how to do ...

Re: Ding Dong...More News

Thanks everyone. Sadly, the effects of thinking about his own mortality [or survivor's guilt] has given DH some health issues. He'll be ok, and the situation isn't nearly as bad as when the PILs died, but I'm concerned about him. Now I have a new dilemma. To tell or not to tell DH about what I found...

Re: Ding Dong...More News

So wowsers! So this is not Clueless BIL, correct? Some of that family tree seems to have one branch. EBIL was the natural son of DHs adoptive parents. Biological brother of ESIL. He was actually much more hateful and dangerous than CBIL. He and DH never got along but tried to remain civil until the...
