It's almost that time again. Sigh. I really love that they live so far away but I hate that it means when they do visit it's for like a week! I think we will be going to IL for a couple of days to meet them at DH's grandparent's house since they haven't seen the boys. I actually adore DH's grandparents although their house is far from childproof so Sam will really be a challenge this time. It's been about 1.5 years since we saw them so we're due. But that means putting up with my MIL a couple more days! I think it will be about 10 days this time. Ugh!
No, thankfully! My dh doesn't want them to be at Nate's birthday party this year (he didn't last year but my conscience got the better of me and I invited them anyway) so I am hoping to not have to see them until around Christmas! Yeah right.....I wish
Ugh 10 whole days. That would be rough! I am lucky that my mil lives far enough away that she can't just come over but also close enough that she doesn't stay more than a weekend.
We are going to see her this weekend. My 6 year old has been asking if we can visit so time to get it over with. I emailed my mil over 2 weeks ago about the dates and said we would be coming over this thursday or friday and confirmed friday this past weekend and she emailed me back saying she wished I had given her more notice so she could have gotten some family together to see the kids but I left it too late to organize anything, this from the woman that didn't even call to let us know she was coming down in april, we heard about the dates from my step sil. Sorry to take over the tread. It's like my mil needs something to complain.

You're in my thoughts. I would go bonkers if I had to be around Jason's mother for 10 straight days. I live 6 minutes away from her right now which is bad, but at least I only deal with her a few hours every so often. She hasn't been bothering me much after our last fight on the 4th of July.
It's definately a mixed blessing that they live so far away. I only have to deal with her 3-4 times a year but it's a week or more at a time! It's a whole lot better since we moved from an apt to a house so now they have their own room and bathroom so she spends a lot of time there.
I have the best (i mean worst) of both worlds....lol
We live near all our ILs on DHs side, i see them at least twice a month AND we often spend our december holiday at someones holiday home.... sigh. this time everyone is going somewhere else so i am free this year.... yipeeeee
I've got every bit of DH's family pouring in for Christmas. BIL with his new girlfriend who I hope isn't a complete tool. MIL has weasled things so that Christmas is at her tiny apartment instead of at our house where we have said all along that we would love to have it. His Dad and his wife are coming in as well and she's a trip, actually they both are but luckily despite this they're nice people. The two MIL's (step MIL and actual MIL) have this fued going about DH and BIL that has spilled over to MIL telling step-MIL every chance she gets that step-MIL is not a real Grandma to my son so I'm sure that will continue. MIL is getting into her "lets show off" mode for her other son and his girlfriend and she's bugging me to basically do all the work as though I don't have anything better to do than bake day in and day out.. Oh and step-MIL will want to go shopping and she's a pain to go shopping with.. picks out the most hideous stuff for DS and farts in public (then giggles about it).
