- Wedding: October 2014
yes yes, I’m bored at work today…. so thought I will start a post and hear some stories from you guys.
I will start first. When we were engaged, I knew I will be living with DH and his mother who is 80 next March. I heard a lot of stories from different friends and families, and so far have not heard of anything good.
Here I am, married to DH for 3 months tomorrow. I still feel like in a dream land that everything turn out so great. I dare not to talk about it too much with friends or families, don’t want to appear that I’m bragging about it but deep down, I’m so grateful and excited.
For the first week we are married, I got serious food poisoning from raw oyster. I was stay in bed for one full week, cannot eat or even drink water. My MIL was so cute and worry about me, force DH drove me to ER in the middle of the night and each morning, she tried to cook different thing and hope I can at least have a few bite.
Then, I also heard that MIL will always monitor the DIL rather or not she take care of the son or do enough at home. So I figure it’s my home now, I will should keep the house clean at least because she does the cooking for us. The past 3 months, she would worry that I stay up for my DH or wait for DH for dinner. (DH is a workcholic, never go home on time).
When I try to mop the floor or vaccum the house, I’m not even doing it on a daily basis. Probably few times a week? She would told me don’t do it on week night because it’s too tired to clean the house after work. or if she see me skip my nap after work(I start working at 7am and I’m not a morning person), she will rush to cook the dinner, so I can go to bed early.
I feel that I’m super lucky to have such a sweet mother in law… feel like I have two mothers now that love me unconditionally.
Of course nothing is perfect, she has her flaw too and so do I. Yes, she is a hoarder but as long as she doesn’t mind me organizing things and keep the house neat. I’m ok with that. Yes, she always try to push me to eat more than I can eat but DH always jump to block her from doing it.
There, feel so much better to share and thank you for listening.
