So we are going on a family vacation next month. My husband made the mistake of telling his mother when we are going. I found out last night from sil that mil has been trying to orchestrate this whole family event when we're down at the beach. Husband's brother just moved down there (whom we plan to take a few hours to visit-it's an hour away from where we are going) and he has an aunt that lives 4 hours away. I asked him if he'd like to drive up to see her and he said no it's too far so fine whatever. Now I find out last night that mil has been trying to plan for herself to fly to her sister's and then the two of them fly down to where we are going to be. Does she not understand that this is our family vacation? I mean seriously. She always tries to plan everyone's lives for them. What they should do when they should do it and how they should do it. She should know by now that this doesn't work with us (although we are the black sheep of the family in this regards, everyone else just lets her do what she wants). I was so mad last night I wanted to squeeze her head off her shoulders. I made dh call her and ask her if she was planning on being down there and she said she was thinking about it but she discovered it would not work with her schedule. Who does she think she is! I knew that she was up to something by always calling and asking dh what dates we were going. Just when I think I get to the point where I can just ignore her bs she goes and does something else that makes me want to slap her into oblivion!
I also found out something else that was pretty funny. When our son was born my bil called my dh (when I was in labor in tremendous pain) to cuss him out because "no one was welcome to come to the hospital to see the baby". I have always wondered where this came from so I asked sil. My mother in law apparently threw a HUGE hissy fit when we told her she would not be in the delivery room. I mean it sounds like she was crying and screaming and kicking her feet. So she apparently got mad and told EVERYONE that no one was welcome to be at the hospital and we didn't want anyone there. While it annoys me I also find it humorous at this point (3 years later).....She is a piece of work I tell you.
She will lie straight to your face when you ask her point blank and then turn around and cry to everyone else. Deny deny deny...she drives me crazy....
I can't believe she was trying to butt into your vacation! Wow! I'm glad it didn't work out for her. That would have been miserable! And the lies about when your son was born..... She really is a piece of work! I hope you have a great vacation!!
