MIL does it again.....
26
Fri, 01-02-2009 - 8:46am

Ok so you might remember last week I got an email from MIL telling us she won't be up next weekend, bc she wants to be around for SIL labor.... Well DH was talking to other BIL and it turns out MIL is going to their house to celebrate christmas next weekend.  So she cancelled on us to go to the sibling with kids!  Now I am feeling even more second rate....


I was ready to forgive her for wanting to be home for SIL, bc she might be taking my Niece while SIL is in labor. But now to hear she is traveling just as far to see the other grandchildren!  Oh an they were just down there the weekend before christmas for nieces birthday! 


And my christmas gift from her sucked.  Hot pad/dish towel that doesn't even match my kitchen (I am particular about that and she knows it) and a pair of gloves (I already have a pair of black gloves that she bought 2 years ago).   She had my whole amazon book list, I would have loved just one $5 book.  Or nothing at all would have been fine now.  Anyone want a red hotpad set with a snowflake on it?  It doosn't match my burnt orange and musturd accented coffee house motif.

Hi Terri-


I'm sorry your MIL is not being thoughtful. It stinks when people don't realize how their actions affect us. It's hurtful. Maybe your DH can tell her in a nice way sometime that it hurt you guys' feelings. Or you may just decide it's not worth talking to her about it. I'm really sorry. I'd be upset too! Just plan to do something fun next weekend that will totally take your mind off of her. Maybe an additional accupuncture appointment or a pedicure or manicure or go see TWILIGHT!!

Hugs Terri! I agree with Kitty, maybe DH could clue her in to how thoughtless she is acting.

( ( ( ( H U G S ) ) ) ) I'm sorry about your MIL. I have an aunt who can't stand me anymore (long story) and she gets the most stupidest thing for me for X-mas. That's the only time I hear from her. This year she gave me a stuffed mouse, WTH??? It's standing up, has pink shoes and is holding a wand. I have no idea what it's for. I'd rather her not get me anything than the useless stuff she picks. What goes on in people's heads???

Terri:


I'm so sorry. What a stupid thing to do (not to mention insensitive). How does your DH (with emphasis on dear) deal with her when she is so insensitive?


Take care and I'm, thinking of you,
