  • I did. That guy was pretty sheepish.

    I had IL drama yesterday.

    I posted a statement on Facebook that was funny/endearing about MIL. SIL is on my FB friend, and so I knew it would be seen by her. She got upset, she told ILs, they got upset. FIL "confronts" me about it by trying to shame me with phrases such as "I thought you were classier" and "I think you thought you got away with it!" Yes, I totally thought I got away with a perfectly innocent statement. Geez.

    So, here's the dynamics in play: 1. SIL likes to detract from her stuff when under IL's shaming, so she usually picks a random statement of mine and rile them up with it. This time, she chose the FB statement. 2. ILs get themselves so stirred up about it that FIL elects himself as "dad" and "shaming-man" and then "has to have a serious talk with me about what I did."

    I then tell him that I'm not ashamed of the statement, that I have nothing to be ashamed of, and I refuse to apologize. Heh. they hate that.

    I then write a letter to SIL to cut it out and she's no longer on my FB. I then write an email to my ILs explaining that: 1. if they have a problem with my statement/action, we can talk about it, but that doesn't mean that I'm not going to continue with whatever I'm saying/thinking/doing. 2. i will not be shamed (they don't' have any power/sovereignty and are in no position to assert that, and as such, I refuse to accept that behavior). 3. this middle-man business is stupid so cut it out. If SIL had a problem, she should talk to me. If MIL has a problem, she should talk to me. FIL admitted he didn't see the statement as 'any big deal' even though he was 'playing the heavy.' So I was like "then why are you and I even having this conversation?"

      Or, be prepared to AVOID them.
      That's what I do when mine get all dramatic... sometimes for extended periods.

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

            • yeah. i've made so many boundaries with them. First, containing the amount of time that I spend. Moving to NZ helped a lot. Skyping -- DH does it as often as he wants, I do it when/if I want during a given session.

              they are coming here for christmas for 3 weeks. I am trying to figure out how to contain the time spent with them. I'm thinking that I"ll book them into the hostel down town, to give us enough space.

              • and if you can't book them in the hostel, you could book YOURSELF for the duration of their stay

                sherlock holmes: game of shadows. why... is robert downey jr even more attractive when he's fighting? i'm bloodthirsty. mma matches have me yelling, rdj getting all fighty makes me all rowr

                if my bay ever decided to continue mma training, i'm afraid i wouldn't be one of those concerned women who demand he stop in the name of safety

                ....i'd probably encourage more, and attack his bruised body with my libidinous body parts afterward

                but steak and fake potatoes and diced fried sweet potato is on the food agenda. why fake potato with real potato?

                i don't know. but it'll be damn good

                • I plan on booking myself for work for the third week that they are here, because I need to get back to work. Can't take off three weeks for their nonsense.

                  Booking them into town, it means we can mosey downtown when we are ready, and we can mosey back home early, and leave them on their own for HOURS and HOURS.

                  The 'vacation' portion -- the middle week -- my original idea was a camper van, but that would be stupid as stupid is. all of us in a tin can for 7 days? no. no no nononononononono.

                  So, hostels. and trying not to drive too much. and also having breaks. god help me.

                    oh god lol

                    i went 2 places who should have had guaranteed supplies of beetle traps but both were out, which leads me to believe the beetles are taking over the entire state

                    so i see all the sprays and powders til suddenly what doth mine eyes see but diatomaceous earth with a print off taped beneath it that read 'YES... this will kill japanese beetles'. it will also kill everything else under god's green earth up to and including fleas AND ticks AND internal parasites

                    so i thought.. sounds good....

                    i buy it, i try it, i dust it on leaves only as i like bees and butterflies etc

                    i check the situation out an hour or so later AND THERE ARE DEAD BEETLES I DIDN'T KILL

                    so coo', man.. so coo'.

                    then, to be sure, i put beetles who landed on clean leaves in the dust and watched them die

                    i am now a firm believer. also i'm sadistic. but i don't see how people can drink that stuff cause i inhaled a bit piddling around with beetle catching and it made my throat scratchy for a while

                    also, fevery, stuffy, sniffly, sneezey & my back is not happy at all. how many different times am i supposed to apologize about eating floury foods, body?

                    i fed you steak, dammit
