How is your new year going?

Did you make any resolutions/goals regarding your in laws? Have you been able to stick to them?

Well my inlaws are OK most of the time (since they live in a foreign country and I don't have to see them LOL) but in the past couple year they are just getting on my nerves. So I decided shortly before XMAS during their last trip to visit (which just about drove me nutty) that drama and negativity have no place in my year 2013. My advice to all is : be sure to have caller ID. LOL

Jamblessedthree,

I understand wanting to get rid of the drama and start a peaceful positive new year.

I took a step in unfriending all of inlaws with the exception of MIL and a nephew, We don't exchange plesantries/likes/etc anyway and I'm tired of the garbage they upload and post, I can't keep up with it anymore, Lol..  MIL uses facebook as a tool to keep in touch with her kids and families and I will continue to respect that and update as I do, I'll continue to acknwoledge her birthday there too (unless she choses to unfriend me, Ha!)  My resolve for 2013 is to remove the negative and that was a start.
