Totally Worth The Heat And The Crowds And The Exhaustion

Annual family membership to the zoo: $60

Carousel rides for 3 kids: $5.50

Cotton candy, popcorn, and lemonade: $14

The joy I get from telling The Devil that we already have plans when she calls to invite the kids over to her house to swim: Priceless.

I am new to your blog and I love you. I love you more than words can describe at this point. You have made it easier for me to deal with the evil that is my MIL. At some point I will find the guts to post a comment without it being anonymous.

I am off to have the "intervention" that my MIL asked my husband to set up because I am such a horrific person and she can't understand why her boy married me. I am quite sure that when this meeting is over I will have a good story to send to you.

Thanks for this theraputic blog!

This sounds like a win win. You and the kids get to enjoy the day and you get to stick it the MIL.

All this talk about MIL's really makes me miss mine....the psycho southern bitch that she was.

Rest in peace, Doris Mozelle.

P.S. -- whoever woulda given their newborn baby girl a first 'n middle name of "Doris Mozelle" hadda be some huge psycho herself!

I am new to your blog and I love it! I am so glad to find other people who have awful MIL's. I can't wait to read more, though I know that would mean more horrible encounters with the MIL!

My MIL told my husband that the only reason I wanted to marry him was so I could trick him into getting me pregnant. She bet him $5000 dollars that I would be pregnant 6 months after the wedding. It has been a year and I'm not pregnant and still haven't seen the money.

Fragrant Liar said...

Okay, where are you, girl?

Jennifer said...

OK-- I'm worried your MIL offed you or at least found you out...please tell me not so! Come back or I will have to start my own blog about my own personal satanic beastly MIL! Please...sniff sniff...

InvisibleWoman said...

The length of time since your last blog suggests the MIL has chopped you up and served you up in meatballs. Oh but I hope not. It's such a joy to find a MIL soulmate.

I miss this blog. I really do think the devil must have found out...

THANK YOU! I can't wait for your story! Work From Home

Sarah said...

I miss this blog :o( Surely we can't have run out of nightmare MIL stories already? Hope the devil hasn't found out about the blog somehow although I suspect if she had it would have been deleted by now. Please come back & remind us we're not alone in our MIL misery!!
