- Wedding: November 2011
Living with my in-laws this close to the wedding is stressing me the hell out. Not only do I live with Fiance, Future Father-In-Law, Future Mother-In-Law and their dog, I also live with Future Brother-In-Law and his dog. FFIL/FMIL have been wonderful to live with for the most part, however Future Brother-In-Law is a complete asshole, puts others down when he can, etc.
Anyways, Future Mother-In-Law is a Stay-At-Home Wife and generally just watches her shows, goes out with her sister, etc. Well, the house is packed, just going to be honest, and if it was cleaned on a regular basis or if things weren’t thrown on the buffet by Future Brother-In-Law where they don’t belong, or if his mom didn’t always buy stuff with the INTENTION of using it and never actually following through, it wouldn’t be this way. I live around it because Fiance and I live in the basement and it’s almost a separate part of the house.
With the wedding coming up, Future Mother-In-Law decided to invite SEVEN, yes SEVEN family members from TX to stay with us the days surrounding the wedding. Luckily I wasn’t planning on staying here that week but FMIL/FFIL will be staying in OUR room on OUR futon so that an infant and six other adults can occupy the other rooms. I’m surprised none of the guests were like “Well, the wedding for your DIL is that week, and there are already a lot of people living there, lets make your life easier and rent a hotel room.” Nope. So, Future Mother-In-Law is freaking the freak out and trying to unbury the house (currently 5-6 rooms are full of stuff–not as bad as hoarders but no room at all to move around). They also decided now would be a wonderful time to remodel their bathroom upstairs and their bedroom. After the wedding they are doing the kitchen, etc. I’m pulling my hair out because vacuums are constantly running, his mom suffers from anxiety normally and now she’s making me pull my hair out. She’s running around like crazy, freaking out that she’s got so much to do. And quite frankly she’s in over her head.
I just needed to get that out there..
