  1. My DH and I were discussing his mom the other day. I told him that even though his mother is wonderful and that I love her, if we lived close to each other she'd get on my last nerve. :lol: He agreed, thankfully. We also talked about how she makes comments that make her appear to always want attention or compliments or to get credit for things. Last year she crocheted the kids some scarves. I posted pics on Facebook of them playing in the snow and instead of saying how cute the kids looked she asked why they weren't wearing their scarves. Honestly, it was because I put them on them a
  2. This is not a JAWM post. ;) I do want advice. Gentle advice would be great but I have on my thick skin just in case.:) (So sorry if it gets long...) We've had recurring issues with my inlaws since we were engaged and we've been married 23 years. In general, my mil goes off the deep end periodically and refuses to talk to us or see us for a period of time over really ridiculous stuff. Very often this centers around Mother's Day. Here's our current situation: A few days before Mother's Day this year, my dh called his mom to see what she would like to do. She said she wanted to go
  3. DH left me back in March, but we are still by several odd circumstances married. Not getting into that though. My MIL has never liked me because I stayed at home while her poor baby had to work 2 jobs. He doesn't work normal jobs even, so he still has 3-4 days off a week. She even had the nerve to say that she never sent the kids birthday/Christmas presents or visited because I didn't make her feel welcome. When I confronted her about it, she said I just seemed tense. She has always chosen men over her 2 children, dh and his sister who is 7 years older. She married a 22yo, who was 1
  4. I've been ignoring this, but it keeps coming up. MIL, a former teacher, keeps giving the kids assignments. It ranges from research reports for Diva, to drawing pictures, writing for the Littles. I intercept them, and get rid of it. I don't say anything to the kids, or MIL. I let Wolf know, but other than that, do/say nothing. Problem is, MIL has become more demanding, WANTING the assignments sent to her :001_huh: What's she going to do, mark them?! Wolf does his best to deflect her, but she's getting pushier. Remember, this is the same woman that criticized the Littles
  5. Wolf talked to his mother last night. She's now admitting that she's losing her memory. She told him that she brought a book to camp mtg w/her, b/c she knew she wouldn't remember who she saw and what she did there. :( We've suspected for some time that she was developing dementia. We tried to get others to keep an eye on her, but ppl lost their ever lovin' minds, insisting, rabidly, that she was 'FINE! JUST FINE!' and how dare we say such a thing, etc. She has 3 sibs w/Alzheimers. The problem is, what do we do now? We want her to move to our province, so we can keep an eye o
  6. Ick. MIL's best friend, the one that reported her missing, and MIL named as next of kin on hospital documents (nowhere was Wolf or his cousin that shares power of attny listed :glare:) has gotten the misguided notion that b/c I spoke to her in trying to locate MIL, we're now friends. This bf, I've come to find out, got herself named as executrix of a family member's will, and screwed everyone over so badly that none of her extended fam will have anything to do w/her anymore (Wolf's cousin that shares POA knows her and her history). I've talked to her a grand total of 2x. Frankly,
  7. Not sure anyone will remember the thread I started last month. Basically Dh parents would not come to watch our Dc at the local county fair competing with their dogs. Dogs are their sport the way that soccer or baseball are for some. In laws attend many of the cousins' games. Anyway Dh called his mom back and told her he thought she should change her hair appointment and she and his dad should be there. It is the most local show they can attend and requires less time and hassle than any other agility trial or show Dc compete in. They did not come, did not call to see how Dc did. Two
  8. It was so interesting reading the thread on being a good MIL. I would like to hear from some of the moms who are on the other side- what are some ways to be a good DIL? I don't have a good relationship with my MIL (and for good reasons). However, I'm able to see now some of the ways that I could have been a better DIL. My MIL is a VERY strong personality and opinionated and I took offense to everything she said/says... It's taken me a long time to learn to not care about her opinions. However, I wonder if I had been more secure with myself if it would have been better. Or what kind
  9. I know many of us do not have the best relationships with our mils. What can one do to be a good mil? Assuming that most of us will be and some of us probably are already.
  10. MIL drive me insane and drives my poor hubby insane. Her latest crud involves the kids' b-day party. The kids' b-days are about 5 weeks apart -- History Kid turned 9 yesterday, Tiny Dancer turns 8 in September. In the past we had separate parties for them, but this year I talked the kids into doing a joint, family-only party for various reasons. Financially it works out better for us, and most of my side of the family travels 2 hours from Maine. It's easier for them to come down once in the span of 5 weeks instead of twice, though they would and they have in the past. My mom and uncle ar
  11. MIL just called. After comments about the weather, she announces to me that having RSD is a blessing. Cause I get paid and don't have to actually work :glare: I pointed out to her that I only worked afternoons (3-11 pm) so I was home w/the kids. She insisted that this was better. :glare: I told her I'd rather be working, pain free, and have full use of my arm. She actually got huffy w/me for that. Honestly. Does she actually *think* about these things before she spouts them off? Yeah, she does, b/c she told me she'd been thinking it for a while. *headdesk*
  12. For anyone that's read Anne of Ingleside, I just want to say... Aunt Mary Maria is sooooo much like my MIL, it gives me the freakin willies! That's EXACTLY what it's like when she visits for any period of time! And exactly why I could never have her for a wk or two...I'm terrified that I'd never get her out, and hosting a birthday party wouldn't do the trick! :lol:
  13. My mother tracked down Wolf's # and called him at work today. Psychotic, sociopathic wench from H*ll. He let it go to vm. The deal was, I'd deal w/her. I asked him to just let me deal w/it. Now she's crossed the line, and Wolf's been told that he has free reign to deal w/her if she calls him at work again. I see a ph# change happening after the long wknd. I do NOT want to write her a p!ss off and leave me alone letter. It'll add fuel to her fire, give her something to focus in on. I'm still hoping that something will come up to distract her. I give any indication th
  14. MIL sent another one of her pkgs. As usual, consists of pages cut out of magazines, old calendar pages, etc. And a CD titled, "Everybody Needs Good Manners!" :001_huh: The note accompanying it states that she got the cd for free, and we can always use reminders when it comes to manners. This ranks up there w/her sending Tazzie a dvd when he was 3? 4? w/The Demoniac Boy on it...rated 12+...after she'd just spent her visit complaining about Tazzie's behaviour the entire time. (He wouldn't sit still and listen to story after story after story for her). *headdesk*
  15. This is a JAWM vent. I'm putting that out there for all of you blessed with wonderful MILs or those of you who had wonderful MILs who are now deceased. I don't want to hear how lucky I am she's alive or anything. Not that I wish she was dead, but I wouldn't object to her moving far, far away. If you remember my JAWM thread from 2 years ago around this time, she took my kids out without car seats after being told not to. If you remember my JAWM thread from a year ago around this time, she cut my son's hair when he spent the night even though she had been told not to in the past. She is a
  16. I've been away for a bit. I've had to figure out some things in regards to family issues. Wolf, the kids and I are fine, no worries there. It's to do w/my mother. I've mentioned here before that I believe she's NPD, and that I've had a difficult relationship w/her all my life. Physical abuse growing up, many issues as an adult. I agreed to allow her and my Dad to establish more of a relationship w/my kids 2 yrs ago. At that point, she'd seen Tazzie once as an infant, neither of them had met Princess at all. I told them both at the time that it wasn't about how Wolf
  17. Soooo... MIL called Tues. Announced that she had a class reunion to attend in our province in June, and would be fitting us in at the end of her trip. Wolf told her that he didn't think that would work w/our schedule, *and* told her that she was being rude, telling us we had to be available for her...that the right thing to do if you want to visit someone is to *ask* when would work for them. He went on to explain to her that his busy season at work would be in full swing in June, that he has to work at least every other wknd, is on probation at work til Sept, and simply cannot
  18. Well, I still haven't had my mom return any calls. I did get a fw'd email from her this am re: St. Patrick's Day, so I know she's around. It's the first I've heard from her in almost a month. She still doesn't know that Wolf got the job, and that we're moving. I was doing an email up for my friends this am, letting them know that we may not have internet, and w/our addy and ph#. So, I bcc'd her on it. I figure if she can bcc me on an email to her friends to tell me my Nan died, finding out I'm moving the same way, when she can't be bothered to return ph calls is fair. She
  19. *sigh* MIL called last night. Wolf talked to her. It's a constant stream of complaints. She can't get the temp up in her apt. The roof of the apt is leaking, and has been for wks. Apparently, it's finally being fixed this wknd. She's falling in the apt. I suck...b/c my first reaction was to wonder how much of this is actually true. I kept my thoughts to myself though. The problem is, the history w/MIL. She's overdramatised things before. Made up issues that weren't accurate, and then acted innocent and denying that she'd ever said such a thing, she was misunderstood.
  20. ok, what's the worst thing your mother-in-law ever said/did to you? Mine has been jealous of my SAHM status since the beginning. At first she was jealous that I was stealing her "baby" away, and despite years of effort to befriend her, she never once accepted me. I'm fully aware that NOBODY would have been accepted, but it used to be hard to take. But when I became a SAHM, she made things difficult. She was always so jealous. She used to live next door to us (talk about hell on earth!) :ack2::mad: and I thought once we moved things would get better. NOT. Then she was mad that we mo
