Re: MIL drama
I drive 6hrs to spend 2 days visiting family and friends probably every 3ish months. My husband doesn't come because he can't get off from work. So I drive 6hrs by myself, visit everyone, my grandma, friends etc. I always stop by my in laws house to have a cup of coffee and chat. Every time they get upset with me because they want me to plan ahead and go out to dinner with them. Like really?!?!? We are not friends. It's weird they are my in laws. Plus I don't want to or have the time to spend 3hrs over dinner when I'm only up for 2 days. Nothing is ever good enough for these people. If I do something nice, like stop in for coffee then complain because I didn't have dinner with them or whatever. It's always something, they are high maintenance.
The rare occasion my husband visits, he doesn't visit my family. My family doesn't care at all. They say.... if he visits that's great and so nice of him, but I understand he is very busy and doesn't have much time. My parents are rational!!
One time, I was up just for 1.5 days just to visit my cousin who just had a baby and my brother who just got engaged. I drive 6hrs by myself there, did my thing, and drive 6hrs back in time to study for a test I had Monday. My cousin posted something on FB and my MIL was pissed off that I didn't visit her. She called my husband and started talking sh*t about me. He tried to explain but couldn't get a word in because she was so mad. I had to text her and put her in her place. I was pissed off. I am not a child and I won't be treated like a child. And I also told her the next time I say her... don't ever talk **** about me to my husband. Ever. Are you trying to ruin our marriage? If you have a problem with me, come to me. I never want my husband in the middle.
