@Superstitions: Your SIL sounds like a VERY unhappy person and is probably jealous. I am willing to be if she just moved home from college, she is territorial and knows she is out of line, but just wants to cause problems. While its a hassle, I would just try to keep the baby stuff in the nursery. Good work on blocking her from Facebook as well. 

You are NOT crazy and it does not sounds like you’re a rude person… It’s so hard, but just try to be the bigger person so that when you can finally move out, you can look back on the situation with pride, knowing you did not stoop to her level.

Good luck!

It sounds to me like her life is so crappy, and seh feels so out of control with her own life, that she has to attack you. I thin kthe WORST thing you can do is retaliate! adding fuel to the fire will only make it worse, esp with someone who is so unstable. Using FB shows that she is a wocard, too, but I still wouldn’t push it.

WITH YOUR HUSBAND PRESENT, I think you should QUIETY confront her, stay calm, speak softly and tell her tha tyo uwould really appreciate it if she would talk to you about any issues she has, rather than go to facebook and post things. If you stay calm, and talk carefully, she will have no retaliation. If she starts to scream. don’t scream back, remain calm and let her rant.

It really is none of her business how you raise your child. That said, I do think it is really gross that you keep baby food items in the bathroom. It doesn’t matter if it is  “easier”, it’s not clean. But, it’s not my business, either!

I re-read some of your posts.

I believe she could have a mental illness. And, you should NEVER feel unsafe in your own home. I think your hubbie should  take whatever job he can to get you out of there. He can always trade jobs later.

By The Way keeing things sterile is not the same as not exposing food dishes and food to poop. When a toilet flushes, particles are airborn. I agree that the world is a little too hung up on keeping germ-free, but this isn’t about being sterile, it’s about basic cleanliness.

Would you want to eat in the bathroom?

With the sanitation issues…well there is always dirt in the house. It is actually cleaner outside of the house then inside. When you dust it doesn’t kill every germ and it only moves the dust around. When you vaccum it doesn’t do anything except kick the dust into the air (you have to change filters after vaccuming every room in order to properly vaccum). So regardless of where you put it in the house it’s going to be nasty and unhealthy, but considering the fact that the dirt we live in in the house is something we are all used to it’s not that bad. Yes please check out my facts here I promise they are accurate.
