I think your anger at your MIL for doing her own thing at X-mas is misdirected. You said it's alot of fun where she's going. And yet you don't want her to go because you can't? Did you invite her to Christmas at your house? Doesn't sound like it.

Maybe she wants to go because it's fun, not because she has to be at the center of everything.

Are you jealous or what?

I don't think you sound jealous at all!

My MIL and FIL are divorced, and I know that the family acts differently depending on what side they are with. My MIL likes drama, so when we are gathered with just her there's a lot drama and tension. My FIL is very relaxed, so when we are with him things are more laid back and fun.

Hi,

I don't think you are being selfish....I can really understand what you are feeling.
