Re: Time To Chat About Holiday Plans

Since you've already been accused of "playing games" I'd be tempted to call her just enough that it shows up on the caller ID and then hang up. DH's stepmonster played this game and claimed "she THOUGHT she left a message". Yea, worked for the phone company for 20 years and doesn't know how to leav...

Re: Time To Chat About Holiday Plans

I’ll take a swig of that eggnog with ya at Christmas!! (Together only separate) :P ... Halloween is my fave seasonal holiday. I need to be able to get back in the spirit, she kinda ruined it for me. It’s always a reminder now. So thankfully, since the wretched old shrew still can’t bring herself to...

Ha! That's funny. Hey, choosing the lesser of the two evils (so to speak) can be a huge sanity saver!

Re: Time To Chat About Holiday Plans

re: your husbands paying way too much at the last minute (because they don't plan ahead) - that is exactly why I will pick out the gifts this year. We are on a limited budget this year and I don't want my flakey husband to spend way more than we've budgeted just because he'll put it off until the la...

Re: Resentment towards DH and FIL

Just say no, Hun. If it means that much to your husband, he will find a way to put in more time at work or raise the money to help. If that's not an option for him, then clearly he is in NO position to help. Just say no. It is not your responsibility to pay for your MIL's headstone. One of my dear f...

Re: Hello. i’m Frustrated.

I agree with Melody: enjoy the peace and quiet from them while it lasts. I know what you really want and need is support. Do you have your own friends and family you can lean on for that? If your in-laws are so callous as to make your situation all about THEM and how this is somehow an affront again...

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

Hooray! Just check periodically that she didn't repost that photo - since removing it off of FB wouldn't remove it from her computer files.

Hopefully the hint has been received!

Time To Chat About Holiday Plans

Happy October Ladies! It's that time again when we chat about 1.) what the holiday plans are (with or without the in-laws) and 2.) what (if anything) you are doing for your in-laws this holiday season. I'll start... Plans: We will spend Thanksgiving with my family. We will likely hear from the IL's,...

Re: OMG! Why did I spy again!?

Such a shame to live like that. It's hard to resist peeking, but sometimes can result in that little pang of vindication! I saw recent photos of my sibs-in-law and couldn't help but chuckle - some of the things they've chastised me about are in abundance in their photos, and reading between the line...

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

So sorry, I'm sure this is super frustrating! Hopefully FB will have it removed, but if not perhaps your daughter will need to take some action as well. I had to ask an in-law to remove a photo they posted without asking permission first. Naturally they threw their heads back and howled at the injus...

Re: Advice Please...

1.) Welcome back :) 2.) No more photos where Dad can see them! If he can't respect your request to keep them off of his page, then no more pics for Dad! 3.) I am not in favor of "announcing" that things are now in a state of "complete cut off". Firstly, you don't owe him any explanations and should ...

Re: So Happy I'm Missing This S***show

It should be an interesting show. I wouldn't want to go, either, but would love to be a fly on the wall! When we mentioned we had decided to move several hours away, it got a very frosty reception (as though they were actually happy we lived anywhere near them - I mean what gave that away, their sil...

Oh Girl, I am so sorry!! I can feel the devastation and confusion coming through your post. I have to say that I had the same knee-jerk reaction the others did upon reading it (which is that it certainly does feel like things between your DH and his mother might not be the only relationship that is ...

I agree with the others. ...there is a petty part of me that considers going to an IL funeral just to be a complete and utter bitch.

Re: How long has it been?

So nice to have this "check in" post, great idea! I'm still VLC with the in-laws and hubs is LC. I check in with my heart to see if it can handle spending time chatting with people who so obviously hate me, and most recently that was a resounding "NO" so hubs did so without me. My hubs has been enjo...
