Re: Ding Dong...More News

So wowsers! So this is not Clueless BIL, correct? Some of that family tree seems to have one branch. I see why you're not a fan of Young and Restless. BORING in comparison!

Re: Interesting Headline

That continues to sound positive. :) I hope he's gone for counseling - like intense counseling. As for the house - it is probably not worth it. No doubt BIL continues to trash it, but with the lifestyle he's living, I can't imagine it will be a long life. (Although who knows). Eddie Munster will eve...

Re: Interesting Headline

Sorry, Ruby, this is actually boring compared to the usual drama, lol! I've come to expect so much more! Really! Your stories are like the ultimate in bad boy cop shows (What you gonna do when they come for you?). And my goodness has it really been 4 years since SIL passed? And it sounded like your ...

Re: Social distancing and in-laws

Of course you have a difficult relationship with your inlaws, that's why your here. Welcome! But sorry your part of the crap club! In the long run I would suggest doing couples counseling (you certainly don't sound the problem to me, but to get DH to go). There a lot available online now. DH is not ...

Re: Careers

Hey I like Y&R, lol! But I tape it and "watch" it while I'm doing some repetitive computer work or folding laundry prepping food. As usual, interesting story Ruby. I can't imagine that it couldn't feel awkward to be around highly educated people as a high school drop out. (Not that drop-outs can't b...

Careers

I was thinking this morning about how funny DH's stepmonster's career choices have been and thought it would be fun to share how apropos your IL's career choices may/may not be, lol. DH's Stepmonster, for what little she actually worked before going on disability was to actually blab on the phone. V...

Re: They're official EX-PILs!!! woohoo

Congratulations! That is great news! While Divorce is always said, I am relieved that you are through the brunt of everything. Yours has been much more challenging than most. And let me speak from experience. The texting and guilt trips and utter nonsense will not stop. Try to respond as minimally a...

Re: MIL asking about pregancy

I'd be tempted to answer the phone "out of breath" and strongly imply that her phone call interrupted something. And if she asks even mention that the two of you keep getting interrupted, lol. :evil: Maybe she'll start calling less. But there is the chance that since she is an intrusive person it mi...

Re: FIL has the memory of a fruit fly

So Golden SIL didn't leave a forwarding address. If that doesn't sum it up, I don't know what does!

And there's a reason Silicon Valley wages are so ridiculously high. MAYBE you'll visit and stay one night if it fits with other plans to do whatever. Otherwise you have other plans.

Re: Text Msg

I hear you. Our family endured too many "bbqs" because DH was summoned. And DH started to laugh when I called them "foodless bbqs". Either it was a stone soup kind of situation where we had to bring everything, or it was an attempt for stepmonster to clean the spoiling food out of her refridgerator....

They'll be driving soon so THEN I'll see myyyyyy Grandchildren!

So the Martyr crap continues. DH's brother called DH yesterday, sounded concerned about something, but had to quickly get off the phone because he had another call coming in that he had to take. DH is worried from BIL's tone and immediately calls his paaaaaaarents. (Ugh! I and the kids haven't talke...

Re: SIL sent me an interesting screenshot...

Lucky enough to not have personal experience to share, sorry Momjeans! Do you think SIL is sending this to warn you that BIL is around? Do you know if she sent it to just you? Maybe she doesn't want to report him or your IL's herself and is hoping the screenshot will "go viral" if she sends it aroun...

Re: Hoovering At Max Capacity

So thank goodness that DH FINALLY cut back on the ridiculous number and length of phone calls. I'd be really annoyed and anxious too. So please try to make DH understand that HIS sending INFO, via pictures (because they're worth AT LEAST a thousand words) is creating new angst and problems. MIL IS n...

Re: Enough with the Martyr Routine!

So DH tells me that, stepmonster and he, "got into it". Um, OK - so it was stepmonster as I assumed. He said that she complained that HER "GRANNNNNNDCHILDREN" were getting older and it wasn't fair that she didn't get to see them. I said to DH, "WHAT Grandchildren? She clearly doesn't mean the two el...

Re: Enough with the Martyr Routine!

We're neighbors my friend! And we're pretty sure my eldest has had it. (She's the kid that I would call in "sick" because she didn't want to get a perfect attendance award, lol). And thank you! Its been 18 years and a SLOW DUH recovery! And the stepmonster warning is a good one. Can you believe I ST...
