Ugh how annoying.  I would try not to worry about her.  She’s obviously dealing with some separation anxiety.  As long as Darling Husband continues to put your foot down and you stay united in this you should be fine.  There’s also facebook filters you can you to keep her out of your business, although I don’t know how they work.  My Mother-In-Law in not on facebook.  THANK GOD!

I’m glad he put her in her place and stuck up for you. Obviously she has some emotional issues and sees (reads) things she wants to see not as they are. In stead of her asking “Hey, I saw what “imageeksowhat” wrote on FB. Was that a joke or was she serious”? I hate when people come to their own conclusion without asking that person first.

I don’t know if theres anything you can do with her outbursts other than you or your husband correcting her. Unfortunately I don’t have a Mother-In-Law so I can’t relate or contribute any crazy Mother-In-Law stories… poor me!! But I do LOVE reading them!!

She misunderstood because she wanted to – it gave her a reason to call him and feel close to him. Some people only feel important when they’re tattling and stirring up drama. Sigh.

On FB, find the little down arrow in the top right of the blue toolbar. Click on it and select Privacy Settings. In the category Control Your Default Privacy, click on Custom.  You should get a popup box that has Make This Visible To and Hide This From. On the first one, click the box and select Friends (this protects you from your stuff showing up to people you’re not friends with). On the Hide This From, enter her name. Click Save Changes.

Then, from then on, nothing you post should show up for her. If you want her to see something, when you post, you can choose to post to all friends and not to your default setting. Otherwise, she just won’t see your posts (she’ll still be able to see pictures, though, I think, until you go though and do a separate privacy settings on pictures).

Wow I’m sorry you have to deal with her. She sounds insane. And it’s frustrating she thinks her manipulating will work.

what a weirdo! I don’t even get how she could have turned that into something other than a joke! At least he sticks up for you! 😉
