Monster In Law Day One

My mother in law is here.

Oh, super joy!

I am witnessing my husband losing his spine little by little.

It's agonizing really.

Currently, she's tying up our phone line calling every single person she knows back home to let them know she's in Texas. It's hot in Texas. And her daughter in law ain't too friendly, but she can cook.

She's on hold now so her elderly aunt can go to the bathroom.

Thank goodness for cell phones.

She woke up at 4 a.m. How do I know this? She barreled into our bedroom and made her way to our bathroom, MY bathroom, and went about her business. Loudly. She went out of her way to the other side of the house to use MY bathroom rather than the clean one right next to Elizabeth's room in which she is currently residing. My husband didn't see anything wrong with that. There go another two vertebrae.

Guess who gets to stay home alone with her all afternoon. Come on, guess!

Shoot, I may take up smoking before it's all over with.

O.M.G. Are you still breast feeding? Can you drink wine? I'd drink lots and lots of wine. Or vodka. Whatever you have on hand. I'm sorry.

Mommy Daisy said...

Yikes! She sounds horrible. I hope that you can make it through the whole time. (I'm laughing at the Monster in Law reference. I just watched that movie last night. Boy, am I lucky!)

This is where I get to feel relief that my family all lives close by so that we never have overnight guests.

A little wine never a baby. Slam a glass tonight...

Lynsey said...

I was going to suggest a big glass of wine also. Wine makes everything better.

Vodka was my thought. Haha. It's so hard to watch one's spouse become a damn jellyfish, isn't it? When my FIL was alive and he visited I found my feelings for my husband were compromised by my intense dislike of my FIL. My husband has some traits of his dad's(even tho he'd deny, deny, deny) that the boys and I can see. A certain rigidity about how he's never wrong.

I hope your marriage isn't dented by this visit. HUGS.

5 minutes with my MIL is enough to send me screaming into the night, I can't imagine having her as a guest in my home. You're a far braver woman than I and I hope you all come out of it (relativly) undamaged.

Mamma said...

Your bathroom??!! That's just WRONG!!

SydneyDawn said...

That sounds miserable. Hopefully her visit will be over quickly.

BethGo said...

Well she;s got a lot of nerve soen't she.
Day one and she's trying to establish her territory using YOUR bathroom??!! Nasty.

Hide the toilet paper roll. That'll get her.

Hang in there.
