I have a situation going on with my SIL that I don't know how to handle. Apparently, my sweet SIL inherited a LOT of $$ several years ago and you
guessed it - she went from sweet to rhymes with witch!! She acts physically repulsed by me. She even makes ugly faces at me, makes derogatory remarks as I am walking towards her, and purposely leaves my family out of the loop on big decisions (ex.: beach house family vacation). This is
making me miserable. I have no clue what I have done to her - if anything?? I am wondering what space ship came down and abducted my sweet SIL.
Anyway - I wanted to know what you guys thought about something. Since our extended family is so big (9 kids in all plus 10 adults) we all decided a while back to draw names for the kids. We also buy a present for my inlaws. Usually - my SIL that I have been talking about - has Thanksgiving at her house and everyone draws names. However, my family did not go this year to her house for Thanksgiving and I was told that they forgot to draw names. Well on Nov. 25th my husband called his brother and talked about T'giving, etc. He asked if my SIL had drawn names yet and he said no but he would remind her. I sent a friendly email to her on the 26th asking kindly for the names of the kids that we got. Well here it is December 13 and I STILL have not heard 1 word from her. I keep mentioning it to my husband and I can tell he is getting tired of the subject matter. Finally, he said he would address her at Christmas when 3 kids are standing there with no present. (I have bought 3 Amazon.com Gift cards because I don't want a child to feel left out. However, my husband doesn't know this. Should I wrap the gift cards as presents and leave them in the car or what???)
Any advice would be tremendously appreciated.
