Just tell her she is stresing you out! Say “I know this is a really important day not just to me, but to our whole family, but there is alot on my plate right now and I can only handle one project at a time. I think it would be better for everyone if we kept our stress levels low.” She may not even know she is driving you crazy!

If you have a good relationship, it would probably be fine to just gently remind her that you are pretty stressed and that maybe she should bounce her ideas off someone else for a while?

Date Twins! Its COMING!! I love my MIL, too, so high five on that, too ^__^

I love mine too (even if she doesn’t KNOW she’s going to be my FMIL yet since we’re not officially engaged) but I get the feeling that she’s going to be a pretty hands off MIL. Their family is very…. formal and stoic so I don’t predict alot of problems.

I am SO GLAD you posted this… I am already getting high blood pressure from FMIL and still have 8 months to go. Normally we get along great, but lately she has been driving me insane… It’s like we’re (FI & I) intruding on her plans. She hates all of our ideas, and won’t even listen to what FI wants, much less me :(. So we quit asking for opinions, because someone’s feeling will get hurt, and we don’t want it to be ours (selfish, maybe, but it’s working.)

Maybe with the diy project you could tell her that she’s welcome to do it, but you just don’t really have the time? Or you can only squeeze in an hour one night to help?
