Re: Hoovering At Max Capacity

Melody ~ You’re exactly right, DH loved it years ago when his mother and I “got along”, I took on a lot of those conversations so that he didn’t have to. She has worn him out now. What I had deleted from the original post is how funny it is that she only approaches me during crisis like death in fam...

Hoovering At Max Capacity

It’s over the top and I don’t think I can handle this. Who goes from severe hatred to all of a sudden, gushing and boasting about how wonderful her DIL is? It’s too much, I can’t stomach this. It’s easier when she’s showing her true colors and not using me to get whatever she’s after. My DH sent MIL...

Re: I broke no contact to go scorched earth on MIL

You are married to my husband... this is incredible, I swear I can relate 100 % Your last sentence “psychotic ex” is exactly how his mother treats their secret little conversations. She completely loves being this little secret because in her mind, it means my husband is honoring her and hiding some...

Re: Dusting Off Some Thoughts

Wow Momjeans, this is exactly what’s been playing out in my head this morning. My husband can read me too, he’ll ask “what’s bouncing around in your head”? lol, He knows when something is bothering me, he gets “that funk vibe” too, even if I think I’m not showing any signs. I think deep down, he kno...

Re: Dusting Off Some Thoughts

I’m sorry I missed the original post. Looks like it’s been removed? But by the comments below it, it looks like something I can relate to. Momjeans last sentence “So, when the adult child gets married and brings in a new person they feel like they need to exert control to keep things the way they ar...

Re: FIL’s horrible habit of opening DH’s mail

It looks like it’s all of thee above. Your FIL has been collocating his own mail all of his adult life, surely he has grasped the difference the first time he opened someone else’s mail. I’m sure he’s curious about your DH’s credit situation. That’s personal and private and crosses the line. First t...

Re: Toxic in-laws & social distancing: A hate story

What a circus. Unbelievable and relatable. I have a drink BIL and could picture this exact scenario, especially with the face time “shout outs”. My BIL is crude and an extremely immature for 40Something I’m proud of your hubby for texting his father when he was right outside your front door lol. Tha...

Re: What has MIL ridiculed you for?

Unbelievable... I mean that’s such a personal issue. Wow, just wow. This is nitpicking at its finest. I can’t wrap my head around it and I get it all at the same time, they’re irrational lol My husbands mother ridicules me just for breathing and we don’t even live near her. Her latest “upset” is ove...

Re: Informed Delivery... MIL sent something

I LOVE the way you think!! That’s pretty brilliant. Thank you! I am curious what it has to say. I pulled the stunt with the Valentine envelope when I sent her my “good riddance” letter, so of course I am expecting my bday timing to be a touché. It’s funny, she mailed my husband a letter a couple of ...

Thank you very much Melody... insert heart emoji


The one thing about this town we live in, we don’t have mailboxes. EVERYTHING gets sent to the local post office. It sucks.

Informed Delivery... MIL sent something

(FYI, Informed delivery is a service the USPS provides. It’s a nice feature to see what mail is coming before it reaches you). My birthday was yesterday.... I checked my email and I have an informed alert that my husbands mother has sent me something. According to the photo, it is in a letter envelo...
