    So I have to explain one thing first.

    We have no contact with the in-laws at our home. They aren't allowed in. Years ago my husband lets his mom handle all his banking, bills , mail etc so she has/had not only his personal information but access to all of his accounts. After marriage I insisted that stop. My In...

    where it comes back to haunt you? Have you ever had a moment where you felt hurt, and rage at the same time? Have you ever had a moment where you felt defeated, and hopeless? Have you ever had a moment where you finally came to realise that there is evil in this world, and you...

    Never Wishes Me Well

    I can't say that I hate my Mother in Law really.  I don't like to waste my time on such negative feelings but I do stay away from her as much as I can.  When I have to be around her I am as pleasant as I can be, which, because intrinsically I'm wired to please...

    I don't actually hate my mother in law.

    .. I just don't want to see her face so often! She insists on buying these extravagant gifts for our little family (doesn't sound so bad, right?), but there are always strings attached. The strings are that she has to pick everything, argue with you if you say it's too much...

    Let me start off with a story first.

    My soon to be husband had his lower wisdom teeth pulled almost a week ago. So of course he's been in a bit of pain, not much because he's a man and won't complain. I made him his favorite dinner, which is had rice in it, and some went into one of his holes. Now I felt so bad for...

    My mother-in-law had 12 grand children.

    For gifts when they were born she said she opened bank accounts in their names. Say it was a birthday, she'd send a card saying she deposited 50 dollars in their account. This went for all holidays also. Come to find out in much later years she opened 12 accounts at her bank...
