A week? The in-laws will be here a whole f*cking week?!

My in-laws were supposed to come visit us in Maine this month but now that’s changed. Instead, they’ll be coming here for Thanksgiving… for a whole fucking week. OH DEAR GOD NOOOO!

I guess one thing I’ll have on my side is crazy pregnancy hormones. But still….


What’s even worse is since I’m knocked up, there’s no xanax or vodka to get me through this visit.


I can barely handle having them visit us for 2-3 days and that’s even when they stay at a hotel. This time they’ll be at our house the whole damn time.

Since the filter between my brain and mouth lessens when I’m pregnant, I say I should embrace the fuck out of that and if needed, say whatever the hell I want when they’re annoying the shit out of me.

My MIL has a stick permanently stuck in her ass and it only became worse after I had the little hummingbird. Who knows how much worse it will be now that I have another baby bird baking in the oven.

Believe it or not, I’ve shown as much respect to her as I could for years and years. I always say as little as possible when they’ve visited over the years. I’m not the sassy smart ass that I may come off ass in real like. Okay, I am, but I have to warm up to people before I show that side.

With the in-laws though, I learned early on from my husband that the less you say to them, the better.

But my MIL doesn’t let me off that easy. She knows how to make innocent chit chat and then when I start letting my guard down, her claws come out like Wolverine. Better yet, Freddy Kreuger.


Vodka, how you will be missed.

    Hmmm. There is a lot to say about witch MILs, but I think at this time, your husband really needs to step in and step up. You are his wife and have been for many years. You just moved and suffered a huge loss during this transition. He, not YOU, needs to limit their stay and if she says even 1 thing out of line to you, he needs to speak up and shut her down. That is your home and you don’t have to take abuse from anyone there! Additionally, while things are going well with this pregnancy, any added stress can put you in the hospital. I understand that standing up to family, especially parents, is impossibly difficult. But it needs to be done and come from him.
    I don’t have issues with my FIL or MIL, it is the rest of that family. My husband’s cousin is vicious to her SIL, me, my MIL and anyone else who has married into the family. If anyone stands up to her, they too are treated like absolute shit. As a result, family get-togethers are very stressful. And most of the family does not attend.
    What ever happens, good luck!

    Oh for the love of (insert name here)!!! The Little Hummingbird is 4 now and she will most definitely pick up on negativity from your “sweet” MIL!!! And she might even try to use that negativity after her “sweet” grannie leaves! If things get real annoying – Bitch slap her and I will DEFINITELY will bail you out of jail! Or better yet – sic Kitty Kay Kat on her!!! Let me know first because I want to be a fly on the wall when KKK gets done with her!!!

    I have the dubious honor of being the one with the crappy family, while my partner’s family is awesome. I try to run interference and sometimes just have to get very direct toward my side to make them knock it off. I’m always amazed my partner isn’t either drunk or irrationally furious by the time my family leaves. If hers acted like mine, vodka and xanax would definitely be my best pals before the end of their visit.

    Jen – me too. Mine is the family we contend with, especially recently and it’s gotten ugly. So fun. So not worth my investment into negative energy.

    Ugh. What a waste of stress. I’m so sorry you have to deal with this crap. It makes no sense and it’s so freaking needless. Family…such fun!
