AHHH! I haven't updated in a while...but life has been hectc with a new baby. This doesn't mean that my in laws have been any easier...i just haven't really had time to simply focus on their crazy.
MIL has a new trend of trying to butter my up on thursday so she can try to force a visit on fridays. mind you at this point i don't enjoy being alone in a room with her. well 2 week ago she came over and started giving me marriage advice.... "you're going to have ups and downs...but you need to look at this baby and remember what the reason is..." ummm? we didn't just get married because i was pregnant. aaron and i have been together for like 4 years...it was bound to happen...yeah we sped it up a bit...but we didn't just meet each otehr and get pregnant.
anyway the whole point is to say she's the queen of jumping over boundaries adn giving inappropriate advice...
so she comes over today. she text me at 10am asking if she could stop by..and i didn't have an excuse since aaorn took the car, but i told her aaron would be home around 3....so she said she'd come after she got off of work at 1:30
when i told aaron that she was coming his question "did she ask you if she could" good boy! you're learning...
so aaron comes home early and its a total surprise to MIL that he was there. the visit started up pretty nice until i brought up the baptism. I tol dher its scheduled from november 20 and that they wanted to know how many pews to reserve so i asked her how many do you think
change of subject...so i have to bring it back. "how many people do you think we can expect from your family?"
"who are YOU going to invite from my family?"
wow. the queen of inviting ppl i don't even know to my babyshower is now asking me who i'm inviting to a baptism...
ok...moving on "we're thinking about going to dinner after words
change of subject...so aaron brings it back "well do you think we should like go to dinenr afterwards
"do YOU want to go to diner afterwards?
and each thing she finishes off with "i'm here for you guys. tell me what you NEED me to do" umm...who are you
its like I can't expect anything from our visits....she always has a friggin curveball
i'm not from a family that invties the whol eextended famiyl to baptisms. its not my culture. and when i wanted to invite ppl to my babyshowershe started inviting a ton of ppl. same for the birth of m child. wheni don't want advice she gives it...
but here i am ASKING for it and she shuts it down "what do YOU want? what are YOU going to do? I'm here for you....tell me what you NEED me to do" I need your fucking advice
i'm not inviting anyone from your family.
my family will just go out to eat afterwards
this was a nice reminder of why i don't ask you for your opinion
by the way
i hate you
