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!
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!
