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.

<<You have NO clue. That is all there is to it. End of conversation >>

You missed the point of my comments spring, one doesn't need to have a clue into that relationship, that wasn't the point.  I thought it was kinda a reach for jams to bring it into the discussion personally...

<<Bawahhhaa...you DO know that I DO live near a lake and HAVE been there many times. lol. (good try though trying to get me on something you can NOT>

You mean like having to always be right, nope...you just didn't show that loud and clear.  ;0

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.

I don't think she understands power struggle either, The orders, accusations and admitted nags speak otherwise.  But here, Let me help you up spring...  Lol. 

Bawahhhaa...thanks so much for the help. I just keep falling off it with every post. lol.

I know there are truly horrible MIL's out there, but having been on the receiving end of nastiness from spring and Jambles, and seeing how they treat people here, it makes it difficult to believe that they don't treat people, including their MIL's the same in real life. I would not want anyone in my life who treats me the way I've been treated here, and if they treat their MIL's like they treat me, I can see that there would be a problem.

Honey...I went to being the doormat with my MIL to just not even giving her the time of day. I do not talk to her. If I have to, I am cordial, THAT.IS.ALL. There is no need for me to have a relationship, or even conversation with her. Now, my STEP-MIL is WONDERFUL. I love her and we have ALWAYS, from day ONE had a wonderful relationship. She is TOTAL OPPOSITE of my MIL.

<<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.>>

I know, that's what I said, I don't know here but I do have sympathies for anyone having to deal with constant passive aggressive and mean comments while all attempts at civil and polite conversation is ignored.  I do.  I don't think attempts at civil and polite conversation is bending over backwards or acting like a doormat.   I know, some people enjoy being mean, they enjoy insulting others and making passive aggressive comments.  

You have NO clue. That is all there is to it. End of conversation Laughing

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

Bawahhhaaa....you could have FOOLED me. >>
