I never see or speak to my MIL, she doesn't call, doesn't come over, nothing. She claims it too far for her (45 min. drive) but she drives to see her fiancee almost weekly (3 hr drive), she's making excuses.

She called us at our home (strange) to "see how we were doing"...and then obvious "if we were going there for Easter dinner"... is she out of her tree? We've planned on hosting Easter dinner for a while now, it's at our home, my family is coming & if she wants to come, as I've invited her to other holiday meals, she is welcome but I am not trucking up to see her w/ my kids who are toilet training & napping when she has NOTHING to accommodate my kids. Period. Now she's all angry w/ us or I should "me" for yet again not going to her home. Just like Christmas eve.

MIL is an "okay" cook, she's better than my grandmother, but hands down, the best cook by far is my mother. She is like excellent, does it all & it's always fantastic, gourmet & pretty, I just don't get it. I consider myself to be good at cooking, when I try, I do try....and usually it's good. Nothing that people go nuts for, oh... I do make a side dish & 1 dessert that I constantly get requests for, so I suppose I do some things right. My DH eats everything, as long as it's not green or a veggie (he's a brat that way, but not cause of me).

How frustrating! Makes me glad that neither side of our family cares a fig for us

And that Dh is a chef so nobody complains about him cooking - not even my parents who complain about EVERYTHING! lol
