Re: My FIL finally died

WTTBT, I'm sorry to say that doesn't surprise me even a little. I just hope she didn't find a way to finagle it so YOU owed her something. She has been an evil thief from the beginning, and I hope you never have to deal with her again.

Re: Overstaying Mother in Law

Let her know that the baby could come any time and since you only have two rooms, she will be the one sharing it with the infant. It will not be the cushy vacation it was the last time.

Finally! I have to wonder how many minutes will pass between when GSIL rolls him into a ditch and when she finishes spending the last of his money. Given that you first posted this 3 days ago, chances are good it happened already.

Re: Birthday Card

Haha, anthrax! That's a good one! :lol:

I'm not sure about the handwriting, it's probably his, but I'm not familiar at all with SMIL's handwriting, so who knows?

And yes, very, very clever. If by "clever" we mean "obvious!" :lol: :roll:

Birthday Card

My husband got a birthday card from FIL today. That's fine, as long as he leaves me alone whatever. But for some reason he decided to leave his name off of the return address. But he still put the rest of his address there, and it's a PO box in a podunk Southern California town, so I knew it was fro...

Re: I hate making things for people

She has masks now, but had wanted ones with a particular character on them. Originally she was going to order some preexisting fabric from Spoonflower when I agreed to work on it, but then changed her mind and decided to commission an artist to make a different print. Then Spoonflower was backed up ...

I hate making things for people

That is the biggest lesson I've learned during this whole Covid situation. I offered to make an online friend custom printed face masks in April, I didn't receive the materials they wanted to use until July, the first one I made didn't fit and I had to wait weeks to get their measurements so I could...

Re: MIL wants to clean our house

I also have issues with fragrance. I've never understood why some people seem to think that spraying feces with fake strawberry is a solution when what they need to do is remove the feces!

Re: FIL has the memory of a fruit fly

He won't be able to manipulate me that way, he's already proven he can and will cancel my ticket. So if he ever did try to pull that, I can tell him that he can just cancel it like he did last time. :lol: :twisted: Fortunately my husband and I are in agreement at the moment that there is no reason t...

Re: FIL has the memory of a fruit fly

It is pretty telling! That's why it's so weird when my husband talks about having "good family." Umm, have you seen them? :lol: I can't even imagine going there for a drive by visit. It's at least a 3-4 hour drive from anyone we know and anywhere interesting. I lived there long enough that driving a...

FIL has the memory of a fruit fly

FIL called yesterday to tell us that he is starting his move, but not to Arizona like he originally said, but to a municipality listed as a "Census designated place" in the middle of nowhere California, in a home so expensive that they had to sell both his house and SMIL's Arizona house to buy. I al...

Re: FIL Moving

Update- We got the box today, perfect timing consider our apartment flooded two days ago and everything is still a mess. (Fortunately we had very little damage, but our modem was toast and we had to have Att overnight us a new one.) It was primarily pictures, but not from Grandma like we were told. ...

Re: Relief in Being Ignored

Thanks!

I'm sure he thinks he is punishing me. Little does he know that mising the $25 birthday check is a small price to pay for the peace that comes with his absence!

Re: FIL Moving

And with all the postal delays, getting lost in the mail is a real chance! It's been 2 weeks already! I just got a book the other day that I ordered on Amazon a month ago. He lives out of state now, so that part won't change much. But I feel like there will be less pressure to visit him alone in Ari...
