Got to love the holidays! Two weeks ago we were out at the OR coast with DH's FOO. It went ok, but I did ask MIL what she wants to do for MD's & remind her that it was my BD as well. I told her I did have plans but I was willing to drop dh off at her house on my way to knitting/BD party with my knitting pals. MIL was a little taken back, she acted like the day was meant just for her. After ward dh will be taking me out to dinner for my bd/md gift (we have tickets for the 11th to see Air Supply) . I'm sure MIL is upset with me over that & Easter. My oldest dd, sister & I have been planning Easter for close to a month. MIL called Tues/Wed & asked DH & I up for Easter dinner, dh told her we were having the kids over, but she was welcome to come too. She has passed, her choice. But she now asked dh to come up Friday night to do some work for her (he wants me to come ride train up & he will pick me up & we can both go up. I've got plans to do our groc shopping

MIL wanted dh & I to come up for Easter, when dh explained to her that we were having my family here & invited her, she refused. So that was ok with me. The problem I had was with my oldest dd & her dh. They got to fighting at their house & came here and it continued. I love this SIL, but he can act like such a big baby at times. I just want to turn his 6ft 5 inch frame over my knee & spank him. He wants dd to get a job & they have 2 jeeps, one doesn't run. He's changing his work shift in a couple of weeks & could ride the train to work in the mornings & back in the afternoons. {dd takes gd Miss Lu to school by the city bus & takes dd over 4 hours a day to go back & forth} he refuses to give her the jeep, won't give her money for the bus. But wants her to go get a job. I just want to scream at him. Yes granted right now I'm not working & help out as much as I can, but I'm trying to go back to work {need to shut my dh up about me not working for the last 18 months} but I can only do so much. SIL parent's are both gone now. He doesn't get along with his family {8 kids, he's the baby of the family~~dd is my oldest} & SIL doesn't like my x either, he prefer's dh & I over x. But I just don't know what to do for dd or sil any more

Ours was okay...at least the dysfunction happened within earshot of my DH this time! ;)

Every year for Easter, my SIL will come to town to stay
