Re: My FIL finally died

Such a relief, isn't it? That's how I felt when MIL passed. I read the first few sentences of your post (I haven't been on for a while -- dealing with a Cancer issue myself these last 2 years) and saw DH 100%. Horrible, hateful, hatefilled people who have zero appreciation for the wonderful people t...

Re: To The PILs, everything is about money

Mara, this sounds so much like my MIL and :twisted: BIL. Keeping lists of what they'd "done" so they had "proof" to rub in our faces later. Yet any gifts we gave were devalued or the millions of favors we did for them were dismissed and, in their minds, never happened. Over and over again "everythin...

Re: Felony Niece is pregnant, the rules are different for he

I'm hoping that FN grows up and becomes responsible because of her pregnancy And that won't happen. But you know that. Getting a Tattoo while pregnant? The risk of infection or Hepatitis? For pity's sake. That's as a bad as the cigarettes. And I'm sure her nutrition is lacking. I'm sorry for that i...

Re: Felony Niece is pregnant, the rules are different for he

In the Jewish religion, that's a superstition also. I had not yet converted my religion when I was expecting ODS. My co-workers had a shower for me. I didn't yet live in the same city as MIL, and hadn't established a relationship with her at that time. There was no interference. When DIL was expecti...

Re: I have to move

I agree. File a complaint with the City. That shouldn't be able to charge you for the fact that you need to leave an inhabitable apartment. There are probably tenant rights that you need to be aware of, and there could be penalties to the landlord. I know that is not always the case, such as in the ...

Re: DH vent

Thank you, Miwako. I believe you are right, but he will never seek counseling. He feels it is everyone else. I told him today that I don't know why he is so unpleasant with me all the time, but if he wants to be done, just say the word. Frankly, I think I should just say the word. DS and DIL had me ...

Re: What would you do?

It's a difficult situation, because you're damned if you accept it and damned if you don't. Here are two Thank You note scenarios that go through my head: Return Gift: "Dear MIL, Thank you for taking the time to choose this gift and send it for my birthday. I am returning it to you and hope you can ...

DH vent

DH and I retired at the end of 2017. DH still works for the people that bought our company. He sold the company because he said he hated it and couldn't do it anymore. Now he has the same problems, only compounded because some of our key people left after we sold, and because he has no control. PLUS...

Re: Should I be bothered?

So well said. I appreciate it. It has been feeling like High School pettiness and I'm just going to let it go. I'll always be an introvert and really don't need the call-me-every-day, lets-go-do-something dynamic that others seem to. My last real best friend was in my 20's. I tried to reconnect with...

Re: I’m in a Real Bad Place Right Now

Mara - I can't speak to the legal issues (but do find out what needs to be notarized and get that done. There are often Notaries at the local UPS or at your bank branch. Shouldn't cost you more than $2 - $5; banks usually do it for free). As for the TV, if it is new, it may be under a purchase warra...

Should I be bothered?

Hi all ! Life has been busy now that we live near our grandson, and we've been dealing with problems with BPD DD. I need your opinions and thoughts. We moved to an active adult 55+ community a year ago January in a southern state to be near GS. It has actually been pretty nice in terms of making a l...

Re: We're at it again

If you want kids, don't wait for things to be perfect - they NEVER will be. I agree on that. If you truly want a child, you should not wait. My DB and SIL put it off and put if off (there were fertility issues but that was something that had it been addressed earlier could have been overcome). They...

Re: 1st holiday season with no IL's...

Glad you had an IL free holiday! Let's you start the new year on a good note. Interesting that others were tasked with the housework when they were kids. From the time I was 8, I was expected to do my own laundry and clean the house. My brother had to mow the lawn (1 acre) and feed our dogs (six of ...

Re: Just this close

Thanks, Melody. There hasn't been an official diagnosis because she refuses to get one. As soon as any doctor suggestions BiPolar or Factitious disorder, she storms out never to be seen again. So today she is trying to create drama by not responding to our texts and having the phone go straight to v...
