Re: Resentment towards DH and FIL

What Ruby said. I'm sure you have plenty of legitimate expenses for YOUR household. This is FIL's responsibility, not yours! (And a loan - um, yea right). It also sounds like this online woman might be an opportunist. Maybe FIL has some "gifts" he can return to come up for the funds?

Re: Does it get better?

Welcome Charlene. You might be chalk because that b*tch sounds like nails on a chalkboard. My former MIL had a MIL that pulled that crap on her - having friends come over to "tour" her house. I'm sorry to say, it sounds like you have an SO problem. WHY does he think its OK to bring a tour group to y...

Re: Hello. i’m Frustrated.

Welcome LongTermPatient and congrats on your pregnancy! I know bed rest stinks, but its worthwhile. What an exciting time! I know you must feel snubbed, but try to enjoy the cold shoulder treatment. They are leaving you the f alone when you should be able to relax. DO talk to your DH about keeping t...

Re: Time To Chat About Holiday Plans

Thanksgiving has been blissful the last 10 years. We go to my sisters. I cook the turkey and stuffing, and she and her husband do the sides. DH used to get nervous because everyone is always calm and supportive - no theatrics. I walked in one time and yelled something politically inflamatory. DH act...

Re: OMG! Why did I spy again!?

Why do you spy? (And I do too!) For a myriad of reasons. At this point in my life, I don't get the chance to read any fun books - just professionally related. This (and this lovely website community) IS our guilty pleasure! Truth really is stranger than fiction. After being wronged, its satisfying t...

Re: How do you get a photo removed from facebook?

No more tricks to add. And I agree DD should complain as well. As an 18 year old, she may not check "Mombook" all that often.

But how interesting. I wonder what suddenly prompted MIL to do this? Did she all of a sudden have an epiphany that DD is now a legal adult and she missed it all?

Re: How long has it been?

Happy to hear it WhyOhWhy! You've got your situation WELL under control! LOL about Christmas. DH's and my favorite cousin (more like his awesome sister) does Christmas, and her mom and dad do a great Easter. I've cracked both hostesses up when they've asked me if I want a drink by saying, "I don't f...

Re: How long has it been?

Nice update Hiddengem! It sounds like your kiddos are all doing very well for themselves. So why wouldn't you want to babysit neighbor BIL & SIL's kids? You just got all your kids out of the nest five minutes ago. Don't you want to have kids dumped off on you all the time (probably without any sort ...

@Keeper - 3-4 is a VAST difference from what it is. Congrats on this and I really hope the trend continues to something much more healthy! Everytime I read your posts I wonder for a sec if we DO have the same MIL, lol. Mine finally got out of rehab - but for whatever physical ailments of the moment ...

Re: I don't even know where to begin!

Hi DJS. ((HUGS!!)) I have been through something similar and now years later watching friends (who ironically paid it forward by helping me) with long-term marriages go through it. In short, my exDH "dated" his receptionist WHILE I was taking care of our two year old and pregnant with our second. I ...

How long has it been?

This forum has been quiet recently, so I'm assuming most of us are doing pretty well and are either N/C or VLC. DH hasn't seen FIL for three months, and the kids and I either of his paaaaarents for almost six (for FIL's big birthday). They blew Thanksgiving years ago (we have standing FUN plans now)...

Re: Casting - People who want a stronger in-law relationship

I am totally with WilltheTruthBeTold. I want a MUCH stronger in-law Boundary. Kind of laughing at this post - I mean who in our club hasn't been REPEATEDLY trampled all over for doing the right thing?

Re: FIL's birthday manipulations

Well that is just weird and reaching! You know, "I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em." E...
