My SIL is a waste of life! My MIL called wanting to know what we are getting my niece and nephew for Christmas and started giving me their lists.
Hubs is laid off and we don't even have the funds at the moment to do much for our own kids.
No one else is expecting anything from us, but my SIL and MIL are.
My SIL lives with my F&MIL, lays in bed all day letting her 3 y/o roam around the house, when her 8 y/o comes home he has to do his homework and take care of his little sister. When my IL's get home, she goes to bed while they do the rest. On the weekends she doesn't even wake up until dinner time. The state and my IL's pay for these kids every need, and at 35 years old, she has only held one job in her life, BK at 19 for two weeks.
What kind of person lives like this?!?
I feel awful, these kids every belonging has come from handme downs, and the clearence items no one wants at the salvation army. The only nice things they have ever been given have come from us. And this year we can't do anything to make them smile..
Sorry, just needed a unbiased place to vent.

sorry that you are going through this! I know how it feels. I hate my SIL-- so much so that I have taken them out of my lives. I have not talked to sil, bil,etc since end of august after their last stunt. I am so sick of the drama and the bull that I had to do it! since then MIL has done numerous things and i try and "deal"with her one day at a time for the sake of my husband. I have deleted her off my fb account cause she was making comments,etc. It got to the point, DH had to go to MIL and say if she didnt stop it then him and our family will not have anything to do with them. so far so good. MIL sided with my SIL from the beginning and said stuff about me.. it hurt a lot, but I know I did the right thing..
Hope things get better. I hear you about wasted space sil!!! I have a bil too add to the pile! I just seriously have as little contact as pssible nad it is hard because of their kids but you have to do what you have to do. I wish you all the luck with dealing with her!!!!
