I decided to be nice and call MIL last night to see how her Super Bowl party went. She picks up the phone and immediately says "Hi <>." I'm like "Hi Mom - It's me." She sounds disappointed. Then we make small talk and DH chimes in. The phone is on speaker since DH is washing dishes and I'm cleaning up the table. Next thing I hear "I didn't like the soup DIL(me) sent over for me. Cousin so-and-so makes better soup."

Uggghhhhhhhh! Why do I even try with this woman! Totally ruined my mood the entire evening.

I'd have said "that's too bad. Obviously I won't make any more soup for you!"

That's one of those comments that I would have just let fly right by me.

My DH's great aunt - who I really adore, was so honest last year about this time.

I would send her soup again.
