I recently wrote a post entitled "crazy MIL - please help" and you all gave me some great advise so I want to thank you! I love these postings and you all are very helpful!!
My DH and I just bought a house and are going to be moving this weekend. My in-laws are coming to stay with us next weekend because my FIL is going to help my DH with things around the house. Unfortunately, this leaves me with the MIL. I would prefer they come once we are settled but my husband really wants to work with my FIL on house projects so I am keeping my mouth shut! My husband has told me he plans to talk to her about her drinking and the way she acts and behaves while she is drunk as well as the stupid comments she makes while she is sober. I am happy my DH is going to talk to her but am a little concered he may cave in the second she sheds a tear or says "but..." I know this is a little pre-mature but any advise on what I should do if he doesnt follow through with what he says? Actually, I already know the answer to that one! How about any advise on what to do if she gets upset and runs out the door threatenting to never talk to us again (although I wouldnt mind) j/k.
