Re: I’m sensing a pattern here

Yep, classic love bombing 101 ... I think if this were me and my DH, i think I would just go. We’d make an appearance, smile and socialize with those we enjoy and then scoot on out. Not going shows the “others” that you’re intimidated. Then they can spin whatever meaningless story they want. I love ...

Re: Cut MIL out of my life.

Oh my goodness, yikes. Im familiar with this. My ex drank excessively, apparently he still does. Stand your ground, stay the course by simply taking care of your little one. Cutting out everyone that harms you and your child is the best thing for you. I agree with willthetruthbetold, give MIL zero i...

Re: Oh The Games MIL plays...

Melody_ Omgosh, I do remember the story when your ESMIL picked up some things that didn’t belong to her lol. Yep, she’s set herself up for being “that woman” lol She can’t be trusted, not ever. And as for blocking, I wish my DH would do that with his horrible NA. DH claims he doesn’t speak to her af...

Re: Oh The Games MIL plays...

Update: Our DN called NGma, no answer, she left voicemail “loved the card, thank you”... NGma calls back, they have a five minute convo and that’s it. I tried relentlessly to convince my SIL to NOT let her DH mention the blocked situation. Whatever, neither one of them care about ignoring stuff like...

Oh The Games MIL plays...

What a great opportunity to take advantage of the holidays. Of course with Christmas a day away, MIL is growing even more nasty. To be expected I get a phone call from my SIL the other day. ————————————————————————————————— Background: Every single Christmas, MIL sends a gift card worth $200 plus to...

Re: Falling In Line vs Not

Yep, I don’t get it. My husbands Aunt and Cousin have absolutely nothing to gain by being so loyal to MIL. Those two are forever bound to MIL and whatever it is that makes her so worth it. DH’s cousin still keeps in contact with him, because she does worry about losing his friendship. She is complet...

Re: Guilt Trip

SonofOutlaw Your NM sounds exactly like my MIL with the exception of CO. My MIL will never CO my DH because she enjoys her handiwork too much. She loves the drama. She will stir a pot, upset my DH and then call the next day and be overly charming and sweet. Condescending as heck. She’s manipulative ...

Re: Told you so!

I love that your husband starts his conversation with “I don’t want to get you going”... that right there was his acknowledgment of “i told you so” hahha.. My DH says the same thing now, but more like “we don’t need to get into a conversation about this”... it’s an amazing accomplishment when you no...

Re: Christmas Gifts

Continue to go with your heart. Since you’ve been bitten before, you know the signs. Do enough that if you’re screwed over, it didn’t hit you hard financially. It doesn’t sound like you need to worry about it in this case. We have opted to do nothing this year. We told all family in advance that thi...

Re: Guilt Trip

Ruby~ I suggested to my DH that he start placing his mother on a LC, weekly, like every Saturday update. He told me that it would only make things worse than they are. She is relentless. I’ve been patiently waiting for her to hang herself, so far she has the rope around her neck. Since my DH won’t g...

Re: Guilt Trip

Melody & PMILIHP ~ Waiting for the “illness” from my MIL lol... she’s pulling more drama as we speak. I’ll use the “don’t you know guilt trips don’t work on me”, pretty soon I’m sure. After every heated conversation my DH has with his NM, she feels compelled to reach out to me. I told my DH, not thi...

Guilt Trip

Can any of you imagine how horrible it would feel, if the only reason your children contact you, or come visit you, is because you’ve guilted them? This is all my MIL has left in this world now. Guilt trip tactics or emotional manipulation as I like to call it, is all she has left. She has completel...

Re: Hoping DH doesn't fall for the lovebombing - AGAIN

I love it when that happens!!! Too bad the day was spent anticipating her “non” arrival.
I hate the agony over prepping all day. So happy it worked in your favor !!!

Re: Mother In Law's cruel behaviour

FatStu~ I’m sorry for your loss, and sorry you need to be here. Welcome, you’re in good company among us. My input is brief. Your MIL has shown her true self, this is her heart. Trust this. She will NEVER change. She might change her tactics to be in good graces, but she’ll never change her heart. T...
