I just need to vent, but any advice is always great.
Came home from work today to find a big bag of food in our fridge. I know it's from my MIL (her handwriting) and that DH brought it home after having lunch with inlaws.
We had a family dinner last week and MIL, like usual, made WAAAAAY too much food. She tried to send us home with a lot (she'll make 5 pounds of pasta for four people and then want us to take three pounds home plus a gallon of sauce, and I'm not exaggerating), but we only took a little (i.e. not as much as she wanted). There are only two of us, our fridge/freezer is apartment sized (small), and we don't want or need three pounds of pasta plus sauce. She will pester us strongly (and then get frustrated) to take more home, but we just repeat ourselves and only take as much as we want. We still have some of the sauce and noodles left over so we clearly took enough.
So the food in our fridge is the food from last family dinner (noodles are probably different, but sauce is not) - yes this is an assumption, but there is no way my inlaws ate two pounds of pasta and sauce in five days. And I know my MIL.
I am so frustrated (a) with my MIL for not respecting boundaries...again and (b) with my DH for taking it! MIL knows that I would have blocked it if I was there, but my DH is much more of a pleaser. They went out to lunch so she had to have brought this big paper bag of food to the restaurant. So peeved with DH. But....today is his birthday so to get all ornery on him when he comes home is probably not a good move. Which means I have to wait until tomorrow to address this, but I'm frustrated NOW. I got his favorite food, bought wine, and otherwise planned a nice evening - and now I'm a bit crabby. Hence the venting, thank you for listening, I will bring this up with DH tomorrow.
