Re: Interesting Headline

The last time I was able to get any info on Eddie Munster he was living with his aunt (CBIL's older DSis) two states away from Redneckia. She relocated to my former state from Redneckia about 6 years ago when she got remarried. I don't know how long after ESIL died that Eddie was moved, but I'm sure...

Interesting Headline

This just in: Redneckia, Podunk, USA. CluelessBIL (my late ESIL's low life husband) was arrested after a scuffle with police resulted in an injury to an officer. Pulled over for a suspected DUI, CBIL and two of his 'buddies' tried to resist arrest (maybe by fleeing?) and were apprehended and charged...

Re: Careers

My MIL was happy to drop out of school in the third week of 10th grade to marry a man who was 7 years older to get her out of her house and out of Redneckia. He moved her to the big city and she worked as a nurse's aide in a major hospital until she adopted DH. Then she stayed at home. When ESIL, th...

Re: DH’s parents perform birthday drive-by...

Your FIL may be slipping a little, but some folks are just ill equipped. It's very apparent when people who are not really thoughtful try to pretend like they are. They just don't know what to do, resulting in that awkwardness. I also agree that their default is to treat their grown children and us ...

Re: Relief in Being Ignored

OMG, finally! I hope your FIL moving on and leaving you behind doesn't hurt your feelings much. :wink: I wouldn't mention the oversight to your DH though. He might create a hoover opportunity for FIL by reaching out to him about it. Your DH might also feel "hurt" on your behalf or take it as a sligh...

Re: Happy Motherless Mother's Day!

This is my ninth Motherless Mother's Day. Before MIL died, except for the final few, they were always a P/A guilt fest. Don't miss that at all.

Re: How is everyone doing?

Also, as of today, my hair is purple. I figured that if I dyed it, my job would call me back sooner. Love it! Isn't that the way things go? Good news about your DH's promotion pay. There are so many people struggling right now, so I'm glad you guys are ok. Update on how we are doing: I find that we...

Re: FIL Moving

Hopefully the move will get him out of your hair for a long time. I'd buy the large box of garbage bags in preparation for your shipment. Or maybe better, get ready for selling on ebay or Letgo.
Congrats!

Re: How is everyone doing?

We are still doing fine, if going a little stir crazy. I'd walk the dog today, but it is snowing with a 45 MPH wind. I can't tell you how grateful I am that we aren't tanking financially because of all of this. We lost about 7% of our retirement savings, but took what was left out before it got too ...

Re: FIL stuck in his old folk's home alone during the pandemic

I see on the news clips how many people are visiting their loved ones who are in senior communities or nursing homes by showing up outside their windows. Awww. If only your EFIL were in your town, you could do that. Or not. I can only wonder what an old narc like that will do with no narc supply or ...

Re: How is everyone doing?

Hang in there Jiggly, I hope you feel well soon and I hope your DB and the rest of your family are ok. DH and I were just discussing how grateful we are that it hasn't gotten too bad here yet, but things seem to be shifting in just a matter of days, so we have been obeying all protocols and staying ...

Re: What has MIL ridiculed you for?

Is it just me or does it seem like what we are ridiculed for is whatever we seem to be good at or smart for doing? Whatever way we are different from them? My MIL ridiculed me when I lost about 45 pounds at the age of 28. She told me I wasn't eating enough and that her son, DH, was so skinny she was...

Re: How is everyone doing?

Hi Melody. We are doing fine. We were lucky that my newSIL read some reports that forecast our winter to be horrible this year. Uhm...not. But in response, around November we bought an extra fridge/freezer for the basement and filled it with all kinds of food that we like. Most of the freezer stuff ...
