Thursday, April 23, 2009

u know i like to think i am a very nice,and polite person.so i usually keep my mouth shut when it comes to certain people.one of those certain people is my MIL.last week i told her about my new eating habits,and how i have lost weight.she said wow i am so jealous.she just got back from miami.(she was on vacation).well she thinks shes gained a few pounds.anyways she calls me today,wanting to know if i have lost anymore weight.i said yes,so far ive lost 30 lbs.she says what?? i repeat myself..she says,"oh honey thats too much,u r not eating enough.u need to eat more.u r losing ur weight too fast."u dont need to lose anymore."im thinking uh..i need to lose like 80 more lbs!! then shes asking about our money in the bank.i dont need to buy our son any clothes..oh i could go on ,and on.hes 19 months ,and she thinks he should still be playing with rattles.she always seems to step on my last nerve.i dont say anything,b/c well im not gonna lie....i dont like confrontation..and i really want to be well liked by my dh's side of the family.even if it means i have to listen to the sh*t that spills out of her mouth lol.i really hate it when she tells me she doesnt want another grand kid.shes like so u dont need to have another kid.to be honest we only have 1 boy,in a couple years i want to have another one.and theres a tiny little bitty part of me that is gonna love the moment she finds out.lmfao!!ok ok i am done complaining for the night.boy i hope she doesnt call for a while.oh well im glad i didnt tell her im goin to pick out our new kitchen floor tomorrow! ok now i am done.hehe.

    AH! The pleasure of venting!

    I had a MIL! She wouldn't talk to me, she'd talk behind my back. She told people I was a rotten mom. No way she would have ever known what kind of mom I was because she was never around me! I raised my kids with no help from her son (X) because he was too busy running around with women - gee I wonder who he got that idea from? My kids turned out A+ students, now have great jobs & kids. The only person that allowed to watch the grandkids is me - the rotten mom! LOL! The one thing that really bothered me most was she would invite her son over for dinner & invite girls too who wanted to be with him to try to get him away from me. She even gave girls our phone number so they could call him at our house! Do you think your MIL is so bad now? LOL!

    PS: Wouldn't it be great if you had twins - that would really mess her up! LOL!!!

    Can't help you here! I've always gotten along well with my mother-in-law - she has never interfered with us! Sometimes the family we're stuck with is the hardest to get along with! Listen, make nice comments, hang up and ignore!

    oh my goodness! Yes sometimes family members do rub us the wrong way. You are too kind to hold yourself together and not totally let go. I have one member of my blood family that irks me to no end. She gossips like she is still in High School and constantly tried to draw attention to herself with "feel sorry for me" stories. I have yet to say anything to her about my true feelings because my grandparents are still around and I don't want my grandparents worrying about her and I. My dad and her never got a long and I would always wonder "how can you go through your whole life avoiding her?" well now, I understand. She's drama drama and drama.

    Anyway, don't worry about what MIL has said about you weight loss. It doesnt matter what she thinks and you know you are losing it the right way. How does she know that you are losing it too fast? It just sounds like she is a bit jealous. People get that way when they find out someone else is having success with weightloss. You'd think they would support you and be happy that you are becoming healthy, but infact, most people secretly dispise it...

    My mother in law introduced my husband to another woman not a week after our wedding. If it weren't for mother in law stories sometimes we wouldn't have anything to talk about.....lol
