I like my MIL but hate it when she visits. I keep my house very clean but she insists on bringing her own toilet seat covers, towels, sheets, and blankets. She'll watch us like a hawk when we prepare food or drinks and if she thinks there's any contamination, she'll refuse to eat/drink it. She'll go behind us and clean things again herself when we've already cleaned them. She'll only use disposable cups and utensils. DH says that she wasn't always this way. She had cancer (has been in remission for over 15 years) and is afraid of getting sick in any way again. On one hand I sympathize and try to oblige because I know getting cancer and treating it can be a traumatizing experience but on the other, i can't help but feel annoyed and offended by her behavior.

In response to a confession. On this same topic, do we forfeit having the comments remain closed on our anon, not-logged-in posts? I never open the comments on any of mine, but the mod posts them with the comments open. Is this some passive aggressive tactic to get us to log in? (I'm actually clicking to leave the comments open)

In response to a confession. Spamme, I'm absolutely grateful DH gets it now, because it wasn't always a united front. It took years, and the crazy bitch almost bankrupting us, for him to see that she's nuts. She's extremely manipulative and is the most skilled guilt tripper I've ever met. I swear, the first time I heard him say, "Jesus, mom. Next time I'll pack extra socks for that guilt trip!" I ran up and kissed him. You have my deepest sympathy. An evil mil can be deadly to a marriage.

In response to a confession. I couldn’t manage all that at all - I’d be totally stressed if not freaking out. Kudos. You can breathe on Sunday I guess

In response to a confession. I constantly hope MIL will die so she won’t ever darken my doorway again.

Ds and I went to the mall today. There was a woman raffling off a Jeep. I get that they have quotas and all, but you would think that when the mall is not busy at all, they'd recognize you when you pass by several times. The first time we passed she practically tripped over herself to get to us. I said, "No thank you, I already have a Jeep," and smiled. About 20 minutes later I passed by on my own, and she RAN up to me. I just said, "Still no thank you." A little while later, ds and I caught up and were having to walk past her again. I told him I hoped she didn't try to get me again, because that would be three, and he said she'd approached him again, too. But hot damn, she ran over again, shoving a ticket in my face. I pretty much yelled, "THAT'S THREE TIMES NOW! NO!" Come on!

Just found out that my awful mil is planning to come visit next Christmas. Mind you, she hasn't directly told us. She's telling other people that she's going to surprise us by showing up on Christmas Eve. Dh and I have repeatedly told her that she can no longer stay at our house, due to her horrible behavior, but she's telling friends and family that she's staying with us. Why, for the love of God, is she like this?!?! She's such a fucking narcissistic bitch. I've never in my life met someone who just blatantly ignores boundaries. She's like a drunk toddler that throws tantrums when she doesn't get her way. The last time she stayed with us, she got mad because we made ground turkey instead of beef, so when she took a shower, she swiped my razor over her gray ass pubes and then put it back FULL OF HAIR. Is it wrong to hope she dies before next Christmas to save me from worrying about her showing up on my doorstep?

I'm beginning to think that the option to post without signing in is like the fake thermostat at my job. It looks nice, but doesn't actually work. Why not just disable it as an option if you're not going to let the posts go through?

I hate it when I type a confession and then hit confess before realizing I'm not logged in. Doh!

Lame confession alert! I just bought the game Scattergories to bring to Christmas and I'm so excited to play it with my family. We used to have the best time, when we were kids, and now we can play it with all of our kids.
