Christmas story, 2022

Posted on Wed, Dec. 14, 2022 at 08:57 pm

Every year I have to find myself a $10 to $15 gift for MIL to "give me" for Christmas. I have to purchase it, wrap it and present it to her to put under the tree. Then I'm expected to write a thank you note. We do this, because controlling SIL, who refuses to come home for the holidays, expects us to celebrate together. It makes the manipulator feel good. I'm over it, folks. If there's a Santa, I'd like Christmas at MIL's to be cancelled this year. Pretty please.

I can't stand it anymore, fruit basket anyone?

Posted on Wed, Dec. 14, 2022 at 04:21 am

WTF - MIL, FIL are pigs and won't leave us alone. After years of abusive behavior, now I realize husband is a pig too for doing this to our family by putting up with their crap. They say awful things, do nothing, hate my ass, all but ignored our children. And what do we get delivered to us today? A frickin fruit basket! Passive aggressiveness at it's best. I'm done, absolutely done. I've baked, cooked, traveled, hosted on holidays over and over. MIL insulted my teenage son and made him cry two months ago when he needed her most, I guess a fruit basket is better than an apology - WTF. Evil. I am not a bitch, but I've had it with their shit behavior, they won't even get a card from me anymore. I can honestly say I never want to see them again. I can try to do something like volunteer over the holidays to spend time on someone who would appreciate it better.

Ugly horse face

Posted on Tue, Dec. 13, 2022 at 06:18 am

Well I have never thought to post something like this but I’ve got to, I got to do this to save myself. I hate my in laws! I didn’t hate them to begin with. Actually we started in good form, I assume majority of us would want to join a family with good intention. But over the years, I just got worn out. With constant demanding high expectations without any input to my family, I often wonder how unkind can a human being be to another, and yet these human beings are my mil and sil. I gave up to be a genuine person to them. It’s actually quite hard to do from my side, as I always go soft hearted as a decent person. Therefore it’s been going on for years and years. They have hurt me emotionally and mentally. I just want to forget about their ugly evil horse faces and souls!

Relocated and Loving It

Posted on Sun, Dec. 11, 2022 at 03:54 pm

Are you SIL’s still talking about how sad it is I took my husband away from his family? Oh yes, he would be much happier stuck up north with y’all, shoveling snow and living in an old house so he’d be available whenever one of you got a turd stuck cross ways.

Vacation

Posted on Sun, Dec. 11, 2022 at 12:28 am

It’s amazing how quickly my in laws go from “let’s do a family trip to this place where family members live and have big houses so we can all save money” to “here are the two beach houses that we’re going to rent and it’s going to cost each family $3000.”

Why must you ruin everything?!?

Posted on Sat, Dec. 10, 2022 at 01:48 pm

We had almost an entire year free of you. Now, here you are, making the holidays about you. You haven’t been lonely the last 6 Christmas’ before. Why? Because you had your little parties and all of your friends to give you love. F* your only child.

I wish you would leave us alone. This time of year should be about love, happiness, and REAL family. Not someone that just wants to be catered to and doted on by their child since NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO ANYMORE. You’ve lost all of your friends, and not due to old age. If only your flight could be cancelled due to horrible weather.

Continued Toddler Behavior

Posted on Sat, Dec. 10, 2022 at 04:43 am

FIL, you are (still!) acting like a complete toddler having a temper tantrum. It's adorable that you worked hard to make sure we noticed that you were throwing a tantrum. FYI it was my husband who noticed (and pointed out to me) what you had done. I was just going to leave it alone. You keep showing him how childish you truly are.

Stay in your state and throw your tantrum all you like, and we'll stay in ours happily not witnessing your ridiculous behavior.

p.s. MIL, I didn't forget you. Your message was rather ironic, don't-ya-think? Don't worry, everything will be investigated thoroughly ahead of time so as to ensure there are none of your little surprises. You're far too predictable to do otherwise.

Some Holiday Musings

Posted on Fri, Dec. 09, 2022 at 05:05 pm

The in-laws have covid. Boo-hoo. FIL is being his usual self, going to Home Depot, the grocery, etc., spreading his germs. He is so narcissistic, he can only think of himself. We even offered to take them food. Whatever.

I purchased jewelry for husband's side, but now I'm thinking I will just keep it and let husband do what he does for his family: NOTHING. Especially since they only labled the Christmas card to him! LOL Can't wait to wear my new necklace and earrings!

No, I will not be attending the gathering. Please spare me the crappy present. It screams "I just bought something to say I bought something" and I feel obligated to send you a Thank You card....which causes me to have an anxiety attack.

FIL, it has been discovered in therapy that YOU - the very mention of your NAME! - causes me to have an anxiety attack. My hands shake, my heartrate increases, and I get sick to my stomach. I guess that's what 15 yrs of knowing you will do.

SIL, actually....you stay on your side of the road and I stay on mine. Let's keep it that way!

MIL...I just feel sorry for you. I think you're about to die (literally). I always hoped your husband would die first and you'd get a few years of freedom without him. It looks like he will outlive you. I'm sorry. You're an awful MIL, but I always just thought it was bc he made you that way.

Where's The Exciting News?!

Posted on Mon, Dec. 05, 2022 at 06:29 am

It's December now, where's that exciting news that was supposed to drop in November? Could it be that perhaps the news wasn't so good after all? Don't think we forgot. I'm eating popcorn and grinning as I wait to see how that particular item pans out!

Also: As always, your cute avoiding game never goes unnoticed. That's OK, because I know exactly what y'all are feeling about your current family "crisis", and I grin widely just thinking about how it's got to be affecting you. Of course, we know your emotions are mainly selfish. Just remember: your turn will come eventually and I'll be equally delighted when it does.

Finally: I am still quivering with anticipation at the little upcoming gambit. It will kill 2 birds with one stone, and I am SO HERE FOR IT. Nearly time for it to unfold. Just remember: YOU created this monster. I wanted to play nice. You f'd with the wrong b!t@#, and finally the claws are out.

Lottery

Posted on Sat, Dec. 03, 2022 at 09:49 pm

Some people hit the jackpot when it comes to in-laws and those associated.

Others just end up dealing with a bunch of crackpots.

Guess I fall into the latter category.
