    I hope you ll manage not to punch her, even if it is just for yourself .

    I have been reading a book today (internet was down) and will probably do the same the rest of the day.

    Those were just about the longest 3 hours of my life.

    We had invited my parents in law for Sunday lunch. During the week we also invited my BIL to come along.
    He never says if his youngest son is coming so we always have to guess (it's possible that he is with his mother).
    This not telling is par for the course with him.
    The youngest son is almost 9 but behaves as if he is around 3.

    As brother in law left his house 30 mins away - he called and said (not asked if it was OK) that his ex was also coming.
    Thankfully for him, he got his brother (my hubby) on the phone.
    I was speechless and furious. Firstly how can you invite someone else without asking if it is OK and it had to be HER!!!!

    The last time she was here... I am trying to find the words.... I am so mad about the entire thing.

    We were celebrating one of my kid's birthday and we had also invited BIL's first wife with whom we get along very well.
    He knew that the first wife would be here and it wasn't a problem.

    Trouble was that when he and his (then) current wife came in, the current wife saw the first wife and started screaming - during my kid's birthday party. She then proceeded to raid my fridge of a bottle of champagne that we had opened but were keeping for later (and finished off the bottle in the toilet).
    She then got half-way drunk and behaved like a spoiled brat. (The first wife had by then left - rising above the entire thing.)

    When everyone had gone we said to herself that the (then) current wife would never come back into our house.
    And she didn't, they split up shortly afterwards.

    This is the VERY short version of what happened.
    Since then she has had the name psycho in our house.

    I just read this back and it sounds like a bad soap series.

    She was actually very quiet but it could be that she had one look at me and got the message.
    I can never mask my feelings - I'm an open book.

    My mother in law also didn't really know what to do.

    The custom here is to kiss good friends and family on the cheek when you see them or say goodbye.
    My mil asked me if I was going to kiss her.
    I replied 'not a hair on my head is even thinking it'.
    I shook her hand.

    I'm sorry that you had to endure her again

    (secretly sorrier that you didn't think to lock her loony ass IN the toilet!)

    Yikes, that's a great way to spoil a relaxing afternoon. It sounds like you acted with integrity, didn't cause a scene but didn't act against your true feelings. Hope it's a good while before you have to deal with her again.

    You are way nicer than I would be. I hope your hubby doesn't do that again. Tell him you will lock him in the toilet with her if he does.
