Hi CMTHIA,

 

Welcome and good luck in this new assignment. 

 

Any inlaws issues over the 30 years you'd like to share?

Well with the x's I try to ignore them {as best as I can. xmil loves to start drama with me, she badmouths  me to my 3 dd's, they have all cut off contact with her for that reason} the 2 xbil I get along with & the sister in law I just don't have anything to do with do to her being a meth head.  The current MIL, what a gem, told me that because my dad was a carpenter, that we weren't as good as "their family" never mind the fact my dh is a carpenter too {do you know the Reeser food company from OR?, it's BIL's xw family, but that dil was from a good family because they had "money", I got upset one time & asked her how that prescrition addicted DIL was working out for her. "That I KNEW who the father of all 3 of my dd's were, I've never had a affair on either husband & I'm not addicted to drugs" and stomped off, she turned to dh & asked him what was that about? She is totally clueless. BIL I just stay away from him. I see him only when I have too. Love his 2 dd's. Between his 2 dd's & my oldest dgd, I knit alot of hats for the 3 of them.

Because my 3 dd's don't like my current dh, we don't have much a relationship with 2 youngest dd's. So I'm not allowed to see dgs/younger dgd. But my oldest dd keeps me informed on what their up too.
