MIL sighting - in MY neighborhood

I mostly work-from-home these days, but physically go into work a couple days a week to finish and turn in paperwork. Fridays are one of the days I consistently go in. Well, on my way home yesterday, I spot MIL driving through an intersection with a stoplight that’s 3 very short blocks away from our...

FIL has Christmas Cancer

I want to preface this with the fact that my FIL has a plethora of health issues. Most of them minor and manageable if he follows his doctor’s recommendations (taking meds, getting exercise, eating right, etcetera). So, FIL posted to the Book of Faces this morning that he has a case of Christmas Can...

Re: FIL ramping up his crazy on Facebook

Not sure, but he perpetually acts out like a toddler who threatens to pack up their toys and leave if everyone else refuses to play by his controlling, manipulative, guilt-tripping, and shaming rules. While I refuse to bend or adjust my engagement with him (and MIL), I am not dumb to the fact that I...

FIL ramping up his crazy on Facebook

It looks like the pandemic and no contact is starting to takes its toll on FIL, making him dig deep into his bag of memes. Over the last couple of days he has posted meme after meme after damn meme about: - narcissists (and if you know how to spot one) :lol: - only god can judge him - people need to...

Re: MIL wants to clean our house

That’s a very valid assessment, PutMILinherplace, because my in-laws are totally the type to bring their Sorry arses around my home knowing they’re ill, or incubating an illness, because faaaaamily first, right? Oh, I am extremely triggered by the scent of strong dryer sheets or washing machine dete...

Re: MIL wants to clean our house

You’re spot on, rubycrownedkinglet. Offering to clean our house was just a play to get her slimy foot back through my door to show me what a kind and caring person she is. Yeah, no. So, our move came and went and MIL indeed did NOT show up unannounced to clean, as I was fearful of her doing, because...

Re: MIL wants to clean our house

Thank you SO much. I’ve been very to the point, firm, while being loving with DH, the rare times he tries to insert the topic of his parents. If nothing, I feel it gives him nothing to give back to them when he does communicate with them - which isn’t too often these days. Basically it freezes them ...

MIL wants to clean our house

We’re moving houses (literally 2mi down the road) and everything is going swimmingly. We’re right on task, time wise, and we’ve juggled packing and trips to the new place with a 5 and 6 year old with very little help. DH has one of his friends help him with the most cumbersome items, using DH’s truc...

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

FIL, MIL, and BIL. Let me refresh your memory with how they all acted-out back in March when our state issued a firm stay-in-place order. MIL sent DH a flurry of whiny codependent texts claiming “I just don’t understand,” when told that we wouldn’t be engaging with them, or anyone, outside of our “e...

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 arou...

SIL sent me an interesting screenshot...

regarding drunk BIL. DH’s half sister (FIL’s daughter from first marriage) sent me a screenshot the other day which states drunk BIL is currently absconding from his probation. He’s currently residing with the in-laws, at the main and most often used address he gives, so I admit I’m a bit confused w...

Re: Relief in Being Ignored

PMILIHP toxic in-laws definitely do not appreciate being called out on their crap. Good for you for standing up for yourself! They're used to everyone just kowtowing to them and just don't know what to do when someone comes along with a spine and a healthy sense of boundaries. So much this. I will ...

Re: DH’s parents perform birthday drive-by...

Well they had to since your DH is still their sweet little baaaaybeeee, awww. :Barf: MIL acts this way with DH too. Heck, she treats all her kids like disabled 2 year olds. I'm surprised she doesn't still wipe their bottoms. I believe she would if they asked her to. You’re not wrong. Even my therap...
