Re: The next time you visit!

Yup, she's trying to do a little bit of love bombing here. Ignore it, and I suspect in a couple of weeks her sudden good-natured attitude will turn rather sour when she realizes you didn't take the bait.

Re: Monster in law shit show

Mine were fairly unpleasant during our wedding as well. I certainly made a note of that! I think these mothers are incapable of being happy for their son's happiness (mainly because they are miserable themselves and don't like seeing others happy). I'd keep a good distance from her, and do as many o...

Re: FIL ramping up his crazy on Facebook

I have found that the folks who post the most memes that suggest you're doing life "wrong" unless you abide by the moral code in their memes are typically the ones who need to read and take those memes to heart the MOST. My PIL's never use social media (or if they do, then that means they have us bl...

Re: Daughter inlaw

I can see where there might be a bit of upset since they did ask permission and your husband did say he saw no problem - and now that permission is being reneged. I think that if it is at all possible, you should honor your husband's original agreement to allow them all to come. ((post edit: I agree...

Re: FIL's fake birthday

I guess he's going to get his wish to spend his birthday alone. It does seem to be true that miserable people live forever, while "the good die young". There is another way to look at it as well, though! The miserable people will have to spend a longer amount of time living in such misery. It is a p...

Re: Stepmonster may have had a stroke

As you said, hopefully this will not become more of a burden on FIL, especially if your stepMIL is as awful as all that. Maybe it will be decided that she will do better in a nursing home, taking the burden off of FIL. Keep us updated.

Re: How to get rid of in laws?

I have to agree with PMIHP. You have a guy problem as much as an in-law problem. I wish I didn't have the experience that I do, but because of it I might be able to help another person possibly avoid some of the mistakes I made. One mistake was that I married a man who was controlling (and who would...

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

Well what do you know?! ((gasp)) people who refused to social distance and follow guidelines have been diagnosed with COVID 19. Who could have predicted that?! 8) Thank goodness you all have stayed strong and kept them out of your home! I don't wish harm on anyone, but it does kind of feel like karm...

Re: Ding Dong...More News

Well, not to wish for anyone to die, but it is human to feel relief when they do.
I'm glad it's one less unstable person out there for you. Definitely ignore the text, and block if she reaches out again. I find that with some people, you've got to go big or go home with the NC.

Just because they are coming over, does not mean you need to be there with the baby. If you've made it clear the conditions under which people can ...

Re: Careers

My PILs and SIBs-IL all chose careers in the carer industry, which is rather ironic since not a one of them has a sympathetic, empathetic or caring bone in their bodies. They chose those careers because they are "respectable" ones. They can appear to be martyrs as they selflessly ensure the care of ...

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

It must be such a relief to have the divorce behind you. If your IL's do ask for unsupervised visits with the children, document if anything adverse happens during the visits. You can take them back to court to ensure supervised visits if things become too amiss. It may sound awful, but you can (and...

Re: Hoovering At Max Capacity

Yup, sounds like it's just to prove an inaccurate point to her "friend" and just using you for that purpose. I would ignore it as much as possible, and of course stop DH from sharing any more info with her.
