Future Mother-In-Law did something wedding related and un-wedding related. Un-wedding related she bought 6 tickets to see a show. I told her my dad might come. To Future Mother-In-Law, this always means it’s for sure, and I should have known that because when we came without him, she started complaining that she now has this $50 ticket and no one to give it to. She went on and on for about 40+ minutes about how it was MY dad’s ticket and it was disheartening for him not to show–by the way, she could have just taken it to the counter for a refund.

Wedding related: Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law built a new house. They have been promising rooms and beds to guests. Their plan right now is to rent a few hide-away beds and air matresses for people to sleep on instead of telling them “tough luck” go to a hotel. She proceeded to tell Fiance that the night before HIS wedding he was going to have to sleep with his grandpa. Fiance told her it was his wedding, and he thinks he should be able to sleep alone on a bed that night. She wasn’t having it.

Poor Fiance figured he may be in a hotel that night–his mom will not be happy, but what can you do? All in all it was a good Mother’s Day though, and we enjoyed the show we went to 🙂

Didn’t have any issues thank God, but we also didn’t see them. We saw them the two days before.

My Future Mother-In-Law would not stop asking me questions about the wedding. This is normally not a big deal, but she seemed to be disappointed in all my answers. Like, “So, you are not having someone handwrite your escort cards?!?” Or, “So, you won’t be having the garter and bouquet toss?!?”

I seriously just want one day where nothing wedding related is talked about. I thought mother’s day would be it, but not so much 🙁

@megz06:  I can empathize with the night-before sleeping arrangement thing.  My Future Mother-In-Law thinks that me, Fiance, her, Future Father-In-Law, Future Brother-In-Law, FBIL’s concubine, and two of FMIL’s friends are all going to sleep in a two-bedroom house the night before my wedding.  Noooot happening.

Anyway, to answer your question, no Future Mother-In-Law didn’t get on my nerves yesterday.  She and I get along really well.  But, Future Brother-In-Law did.  For the first time in his life, he got his mom something (two little Dollar Tree “Mom” plaques) for Mother’s Day.  He was all smug about it and turned around and asked Fiance, “What did you get her, (FI)?”  As if he expected us to say we didn’t get her anything.  We actually got her a really nice, painted wine glass.

All Future Mother-In-Law did was talk about her daughter’s kid. I get the daughter is Future Mother-In-Law favorite, so the grandkid is, but it gets old. 

My Future Mother-In-Law has never asked me any wedding details, not even a “How’s the planning going” which I find somewhat annoying but whatev it could be worse.

Future Mother-In-Law did irritate me a little bit yesterday.  Mother’s Day was only about her and not about any of us other mothers (FI’s two sisters and myself).  She was the only one who received cards and flowers, none of us did.  We did all of the cooking and cleaning.  After I spent literally hours slaving away cooking for ten people, her only comment when we were leaving was, “You can spend the night!”  (As IF!  We live right around the corner from her).  And also she said, “Don’t be strangers!”  Which ticked me off a little because we see her constantly, being that we live right around the corner. 

(You would think she’d have had an inkling that her two daughters are also mothers, as is myself.) 

On the upside, my son handmade the most beautiful pair of earrings for me for Mother’s Day – I was stunned!  They’re azure blue lapis lazuli with sterling silver dragonflys.  Absolutely perfect for me and I love them a lot.  I wore them all day yesterday and am wearing them today as well.  And my Fiance got me some pink golf balls, a new pink golf glove and towel, which is what I wanted!  So I did get some Mother’s Day love from them, the two beautiful, outstanding men in my life.

I was so exhausted after yesterday with my FI’s mom – my Future Mother-In-Law.  After our get together at her house, though, my favorite FSIL and her Darling Husband stopped by our house for drinks (FMIL doesn’t allow alcohol) and the rest of evening turned out great.  (Of course I didn’t say a word to FI about being annoyed, because he simply adores his mom and she can do no wrong in his eyes, lol.)

My mom was fine. Future Mother-In-Law…oy. I think my favorite comment was “I was telling everyone what a great job you’re doing losing weight, but I said I think you hit your peak too soon!”. Um, excuse me? So apparently she thinks I will never maintain this weight for 3 months (I plan on losing more) and her brilliant idea was to just crash diet the month before the wedding so I could avoid eating healthy and exercising for so long. Mmmk. Hope her plan goes well for herself.

Well, she did something yesterday and last week that drove me crazy! Last week, she came to visit for only the second time since we lived here, and pretty much started an argument about our wedding (months after the fact), and barely said thank you for her mother’s day brunch.

Yesterday, my husband called to talk to her in the morning and she pretty much blew him off all day. He really struggles with the fact that his mother moved to live right down the street from his sister and cater to his every need. When he finally got a hold of her yesterday to wish her a happy mother’s day, she went on and on about how fabulous his sister and her husband on at spoling her, how amazing her day was, and how she “already saw him last weekend, so she doesn’t understand why he would care if she called him back today”. Grrrr. I TRY so hard with her, but she makes it difficult.

She does it all the time, she always makes rude comments about my parents or my mom and how much better she is. She seems to think since I moved in with her son in their house it’s because I love her more then my mom. It’s actually quite irratating she’d never admit that she’s doing it but I notice it all the time.
