I am sorry for your loss.

I often feel the same way about my dh. I just don't see HOW he came from his family......he is so unlike them in so many ways.

I finally realized that so many of the things I love about him are the result of him trying so hard to NOT be like his family. His parents (well, really his mom) are all about things and stuff and the show you put on for the world. DH works hard so I can be home with the kids (he was latch-key from Kindergarten) and to have fun, do things and make memories with our kids. His attitude is so unlike his parents.

I could almost feel sorry for her now. I think she is finally starting to realize the damage she has caused with her son and grandkids. They moved across the country to follow dh's sister and now she (the sister) has moved on again and they can't afford to move. She did a lot of things to cause hurt to my dh and kids and now they ignore her for the most part. We never travel to visit them. We used to when they lived closer, but it was just so awkward and we never really felt welcome. It's also much more difficult since they moved even further away. It's been more than 6 years since we have been to visit them.

They come "home" (they were both born and raised here and lived here until 12 years ago) once a year. We play nice for the few times they want to get together while they are in town and then we all go back to our own lives. DH's dad did tell him last year that his mom was sad about their relationship and my FIL actually told my MIL that "she had raised her son to be an independent cuss and she now had to live with that!" I was a bit shocked, but am glad he does at least get it to some degree.

It makes me sad because I don't think they understand what a great person they raised. It also makes me sad that my kids don't have a good relationship with them. In the end, you can only try for so long before you get completely frustrated and give up.

My MIL left my FIL for an old AF buddy if his. They live in a double wide trailer, with his parents, sleep in separate bedrooms even though they're married (due to his dad's wishes), and neither of them work. Her husband can't afford the 20 bucks to get the things that the power company seized when they turned off his power. His father runs a very fundamental Christian radio station that barely makes any money, yet refuses to get another job or allow his wife to work. MIL isn't allowed to work outside of the house due to the FIL's religious beliefs.

Oh man. I must be the reason spell check was invented. But obviously, I didn't use it, so, well, there you go.

On topic though, my DH reminded me of all the times she turned the water off on me while showering.... Nothing like standing there naked, cold, and soapy hollering for someone, anyone to make the water reappear.

Okay. That's just mean. You don't mess with somebody's shower. You just. Don't.

She really is a mean old bat most of the time. I've long decided to not hold grudges, not get even, but get crafty. I switched out my stolen stuff for either different but same stuff, old stuff, or odd stuff, and I started showering with my DH while we were there. She won't let her precious boy go cold. And all in the name of conserving water!

Chocolate lingerie? But wouldn't it melt? Oh, wait... that's a good thing, isn't it?

Also is it less sexy if you are eating it while trying to wear it? These are the important questions!

I thought of all of you when my MIL was calling me today. I thought, "oh if my DIS friends could see me now!" as I held the ringing phone in my hands and never answered.
Sometimes she will then call DH's phone and he answers and she says "I just called Erin's phone!" then I do my best "what? You did? Darn that tmobile service!" I will rot in heck someday, and I am fine with that so long as I do not have to sit by her.
