Most of the time I despise them but I deal with them and their stupidity when I have to.

Not a fan of them!

Unfortunately, the in-laws will be here for five days next month after the baby is here. I don't think I'll be able to tolerate them for too long. They have to stay at a hotel since we rent, but still!!! They will be over for many hours a day. Already told DH they have to find something else to do a few hours a day. I do not want them over from morning to night.

Can't stand them. I am so tired of all the drama they create.

Trying my hardest to like them. His mother means well. Just get frustrated with her advice. I've learned to stay back and pick my battles that are worth fighting. She treats me well for the most part. Just that she's very controlling and treats Jason and I like we're children.

Our relationship is very odd. She can be a really nice person at times but at other times she is such a spoiled brat. DH's oldest nephew has been told point blank by his grandmother and aunt (MIL and SIL) that he is only welcome at Grandma's house if he is in the company of his father because he was an eight year old kid in February during his first visit to MIL's new house. I guess until he is an adult, he won't be welcome in what I consider "Grandma's House of No No's". Our relationship is a bit strained right now because she doesn't want us to move to NC next year to be near my family (who are not total psychos who want their houses to like something out of Martha Stewart's twisted fantasies). I know that the first time that our child acts like a child, he or she will be in the doghouse where MIL is concerned. She likes the idea of being a Mrs. Claus type of grandmother, but the reality is that she is too tied to her fantasies of having a perfect little house with a place for everything and everything in its place to actually be a doting grandparent to any of her grandchildren.

She is bossy, rude, a brat, then gets so mad if she doesn't get her way. We don't talk to them anymore because she doesn't accept me or my SIL. Her reason why she won't call here is because DH travels a lot. Well what does that tell you?? I am so thankful they live 8 hours away and hated having to go up there because all I'd hear about is her work, her friends, her her her, yet she couldn't shut up and listen if I had anything to say.
It's so bad that they have no clue we are moving 5 hours south of here!

but I am so glad to hear that at least some of you get along with your inlaws

Hard to say much--they live way far away-and I am OK with that. Last I heard they think I am rude and interfering. Told me not to call and bother them-I have not called again since hmm September 27 2007.

Hello Il room, I am actually new here. I wanted to say that I love my Il's but sometimes my DH can be such a mommy's boy... he is spoiled rotten. They actually live 4 hours from us so we don't see them very ofter, but when we do things seem to be just fine... Nothing to terribly controlling or off the wall yet...thank goodness!!

I love them, they are cool enough. Like any person I know they can get on my nerves sometimes, but no more than my own family. They're actually a lot less trouble than my family.
