It's in-law vent day! I'm hopping on board...

Several in-law vents over on the DC Bump board as well.  It is very sad, but all the venting makes me feel better.  I have all sorts of sucky in-laws, and I'm glad I'm not the only one.  So cheers to all of us who deal with these idiots!  Drinks

My vent:

The Texas in-law visit ended today and we are still standing. Mainly uneventful, but still the same old passive aggressive crap from the step-MIL. Her fave topics: how horrible DH's bio mom is (she's not), how we should move to Texas because it's SO much better there (yeah, right), how sad it is that FIL will not have a namesake (ummmm... hello, DS's last name IS the namesake), how much of an idiot DH's dad is (lady, he's standing right there, and can hear you...), how much of an idiot pretty much everybody is (except for her of course), it goes on and on. Glad that visit is OVER.   The highlight may have been when DH's ex-stepdad and his wife stopped by for a visit - according to Texas step-MIL, they're idots too! Now I have one day to wash the sheets and towels, and Alabama MIL arrives tomorrow. That is a visit I actually look forward to!

Wife, Musician, Fed, WW-er, and Mom of three little kids - not necessarily in that order.

  • Kudos to you for keeping up with the not-so-blended part of your blended family ILs.

  • Wow she sounds special. Glad you were able to survive and now have a guest coming that you are looking forward to!
  • are the 3rd in-laws visiting too?

    sorry you have to deal with her, SHE is obviously the idiot!

  • Wow - what a hassle and what a MIL!

    I'm gonna slide my vent in here...my ILs are upset that my DH gets his hair cut by someone other than his mother.  He just got his long hair cut short and her feelings are hurt.  She used to be a hairstylist but still.  He's 28.  Get over it.
