    She's 81. Besides her husband dying a few weeks ago, she has been getting a little confused lately. She was stopped by one of her sons from packing to go 'to the lake' (cottage) a couple of months ago. They haven't had a cottage in over 20 years. Doesn't always recognize people she knew...
  2. DIY
    So a couple months ago, we had a leaky well. In the process of digging it up, poor DH ripped out the wire going from generator (outside our garage, next door) to MIL's house. Now, we had snow on the ground yesterday morning. And more is expected today. DH rented a Ditch Witch for the day...

    My MIL and her sister are going to be here this afternoon for a fun-filled week. They are still 9 hours away but she has already pushed my buttons. This woman is a picky, picky, picky eater, as is her sister. She called me this morning to give me a list of foods they would not eat and told me to...

    My Mil has decided that her bi polar, ex drug addict, alcoholic , thief son can move in. Then after that she will want her lazy daughter to come next with her 3 kids she does a sorry job taking care of. My brother is moving in he is mentally and phsically handicapped I promised my dead mother...
  6. Multi-generational/multifamily
    They put my MIL in hospital yesterday for her blood pressure dropping. Then last night her sugar dropped. I am worried about her and I do not know what more I can do for her. She may need more help than I am capable of.
  7. Child free
    We are childfree and LOVE it... we've only been married a little over a year, are very much in the "honeymoon" stage, I'm 30 and my husband is 33, so obviously there is no reason to go rushing out and having babies - but my MIL has other ideas. :( We don't see them often but my MIL & FIL came...
  8. Family
    Well although I did kind of make it in sort of a snide remark. My MIL has come over twice and I think she got the hint! The last time she came she rented a movie from the library and let them watch it while she was here and took it back with her when she left and she brought them a snack and...
  9. Family
    My MIL and I have a strained relationship to say the least. I have many many complaints about her that I could say but that would take several posts! LOL But my biggest gripe is that she goes to the Goodwill and buys my kids a bunch of crap that they dont need. Dont get me wrong I think the...
  10. Relationships
    Well I guess now I know the holidays are officially coming because MIL has started her manipulative games again. Here is the background: MIL has 3 sons. 2 barely speak to her and 1 ( My DH) does what he can, when ever possible. I have spent the first 25 years of married life being manipulated...

    And I'm NOT going to bury it in her head, in case you were wondering! LOL! After-----oh------37 years of taking my MIL's crap...er...stuff, I'm working on making nice and turning the other cheek. DH and I (on my suggestion) are taking a ham and fixins over there tomorrow (Easter) since she...

    My MIL is here on an extended visit to check out the area and see if she can wants to move here from Philadelphia (she's a city girl, and we live in the country). We learned some things about our own financial situation (not good) last week, and my MIL told me in confidence she's behind of...

    Last time I promise.... but one more gripe about MIL. First she told me not asked me when she called to say she was coming for Christmas. This doesn't just include her but the three kids she has custody of and my Bil's girlfriend. Long story I don't want to get into but the girlfriend is living...
  15. Just Tips
    I have been shopping at Aldi for a few weeks. My MIL and I talk almost everyday.FIL and DH jokingly complain about us talking to each other so much on the phone when we are next door neighbors. Anyway, I have been telling her how much I have been saving on groceries. From $250/week to $130/week...

    We go out to the beach with DH's family every spring to celebrate Mother's Day and DH's Grandmother's birthday. This year we aren't going until the first weekend in June, so I have some time - but I have NO IDEA what to make MIL. She really likes bright colors, funky kind of stuff. I made...

    and bought two new dresses, a jacket and a very cute blouse. We got to the register and mil whipped out some coupons. She saved me $30 and had a coupon for a free tote bag. Gotta love the coupons. Yes, I am a member of the "Victims of Psychotic MIL" kith, but I took pity on her because fil...
  19. Question and Answer
    I have no ideas what to do for my mil for christmas gifts. She doesn't do anything but read. She has over 10,000 books so I dont think she needs a book. She doesnt like TV or the radio. She used to do yarn crafts but I havent see her do any in yrs. I have already given her things like slippers...
  20. Discount Stores
    Anything I need to know? to look for? I will have my price lists and maybe a calculator so I can compare per unit cost if their packages are different sizes. Do they accept manufacturer's coupons? Will she need to pretend these are her groceries in order to make it through the checkout...
