Okay...so we all have in-laws we don't get along with.....what are your techniques to getting through the holidays?[/b]
TAKE LOTS OF DRUGS...
No I'm just kidding..LOL
But my cousin who does not like her inlaws either she DOES take some sort of nerve pills before going around her inlaws
I need some of those
I just grin and try to bear it
Really it has not been that bad until I had Jaden, they really have not irritated me that bad until then...

DH and I have an agreement that we spend every other Thanksgiving with my or his family, this year it's his turn But Christmas gets more difficult. Christmas Eve my family has a big party, so we go to that because his family doesn't do anything. But then on Christmas day, his family thinks we have to spend ALL DAY with them, and that is crap. I want to be able to see my family ON Christmas too, not spend 12 hours with his family. This year will be our first Christmas with our son, so we will do what is best for him. I want him to have a wonderful time, not be caught up in drama from my inlaws.
Do we HAVE to talk about it NOW ???? FIL is soo demanding during the holidays. I'm not ready to go there yet [/b]
ugh . . . agreed
last tgiving we were at their house - so was DH's ex. i wasn't ALLOWED to their house for xmas (the ex was there). we were going to flee to disney w/ DH's son this year, but since we'll have a newborn . . . *sigh* i don't know . . .
Since that thanksgiving insident Robert lets me avoid them pretty much for the holidays. Now that we will have a baby in the picture we have to sit down and have a HUGE talk about that. I'm not going to go someplace where i'm not wanted and feel very uncomfortable. And I'll be ######ed if my son grows up listening to them bad mouth me!!!
Get it and get out. One good thing about having holidays at the inlaws house is that it is easier to get away when we have had enough. Much easier to say goodbye and leave than it is to throw them out the door of our house.
