Hi, my name's Kristy. I'm on the homeschool board usually. I've been lurking around here for a few days and decided to say hello. Wow! you guys have some crazy IL stories! I can relate, but luckily for me we live 1,000 miles away from my IL's. It hasn't always been that way,though. When we first got married, my DH and I lived in my MIL house for 2 years. I could tell you things that would make your hair stand on end!! I'll save those for another time. My current situation is that my IL's will be visiting for 2 weeks this summer in our new house. I've been dreading it since last summer, when we HAD TO visit them in their house for 2 weeks. ( which is yet another story. ) Anywho, my MIL hasn't seen our house yet, nor did she congratulate us on getting it in the first place, which happened over a year ago. So, I know she's gonna pick over every inch of the house making little remarks. Things like that. Not so bad, right?.... wrong. That's just what the first day will be like. By the end of the "vacation" she'll have rearranged my funiture while I"m out ( which she has done before), spoiled the children, brain washed my DH, and rearranged my kitchen cabinets ( again) I always try to suck it up and say" well, it's only 2 weeks and then she's gone for a whole year" ( this will be their 3rd trip here in the 4 years we've been out of her house ) But I always end up furious and usually tell her how I feel. Not good. My DH by the way, tries to play both sides. He tells me one thing and her another. This is one of the only things he and I ever really disagree on. He thinks I should just ignore her, after all he's been doing it for 34 years. LOL ---- So, anyway, that's me. I hope I can stick around and continue to read you guy's stories.

Welcome Kristy! I hope you do come back often and tell your other stories. We all like an IL story.

I'm with you, I'm glad that my ILs live so far away (we're in IN and they are in AZ) but when they come (3 or 4 times a year) or we go once a year or so, it's awful sometimes. You have to live with them all the time for a week or how ever long. If they lived nearby at least you'd only have to put up with it for a few hours but more often then. I don't think there's an easy way to deal with the ILs. I can't believe she rearranges your stuff! My MIL will rearrange minor things and that drives me crazy but if she rearranged my furniture I would go nuts! Good luck when they come. Keep us updated!

Thanks for the Welcome! I'll be checking in pretty often. I'm a SAHM who homeschools, so I've got my share of free time. LOL!
