My little taste
231
Fri, 07-05-2013 - 11:53am

Today I am getting a little taste of what it would be like if I were to SAH rather than WOH.   I am off work and DH is working.

I am getting  the errands done that I usually do Friday evening/weekends. Really enjoyed doing my grocery shopping when the stores were fairly empty.  In a bit I am going out for lunch with DD3.

I do realize that it is just a small taste.  If I were home full time I would not be doing laundry, grocery shopping or going out for lunch every day and there are some things that I would be doing that I am not today.

Sorry....I have to pass on your power struggle and competition, I look at this board as entertainment purposes only not something to win or lose.  

OMG I just laughed soooo hard, I fell off my chair.

Jams, she asked me a question, I respond to questions with answers, not accusations and passive agressive comments.  Yes, I have told others to read what is written instead of creating fiction and yes, I have accused others of being rude, mean and passive agressive.   As for the mil, I don't know her but if she has to put up with passive agressive and mean comments constantly while any civil and polite attempts at conversation is constantly ignored....I have sympathy for anyone on the receiving end of that type of behavior.  

You have NO clue PKA how her MIL is. I DO. You live in a fantasy world, you truly do. Maybe because you never had a MIL but not ALL people ARE kind no MATTER how YOU treat them. You can bend over backwards, act like a doormat and they will STILL treat you like CRAP. Some people ENJOY that type of power.

And no, I don't require being always right.

Bawahhhaaa....you could have FOOLED me.

Oh I don't fight your nonsense....as I said I see this board as pure entertainment, it's not a power struggle for me as it is for you and jams, that would be silly.  This is entertainment.

I didn't say you did, I said I won't fight YOUR nonsense just so YOU can win.

TY for using that quote feature better than I spring.  :-)

I knew EXACTLY what you meant and not sure why some posters think MIL's are a "sore" subject and that it "gets" us. Bawhhhaaa....I could care less if anyone spoke about our MIL's as we have been OVER it for so long lol.

Or perhaps you could back off and acknowledge what she said, that she was only replying to a part of my post?  You tell others what to do, You also accuse a lot here.  My thoughts of what you say remind me of MIL in real life, Must you always be right too?

You know spring, Between hearing how fun people aren't irl to now growth that isn't had by an unwillingness to learn I'm convinced this isn't a debate board it's a power struggle.  MIL is like that, she always has to be right and she is b/c it is better to let her have her way than fight the nonsense, Lol. 

Then perhaps you should read the post that you are totally agreeing with and quoting because it contained more than someone's mil.  Read.

I am not LETTING you have your way than to fight the nonsense, if THAT is what you mean.
