Mothers Day

Mothers Day is coming up, and I've been informed that I'll have to go with the boyfriend to spend part of the day with his mom. My mom died 4 years ago (she was 57), I thought after your mom died you were no longer under any obligation to actually have to spend mothers day with any mom that wasn't you.

I spent 5 hours and 4 Tylenol with her the other day, on 2 separate occasions she introduced me as her daughter-in-law, it took me awhile to get over the shock initially, I kept thinking hey I'm not even seriously considering marriage at this point, and you've already got me married.

Don't get me wrong, I really do like the woman but GOOD GOD CAN THAT WOMAN TALK, you know it's bad when somebody in a van pulls up next to you and starts making that chatting gesture with his hand, hell he was behind us initially and noticed it, he should have been me and actually IN THE CAR.

So, I'll do the obligatory thing and go spend PART of the day with her, as long as the boyfriend brings the Tylenol I should be ok. Man, is he EVER going to owe me, and don't think I won't remind him about it either.

Your a very good person from all your blogs i have read. You make sure your BF takes care of you and never let him forget what you did for him. I for one have a great mother in law. The first nine years in florida the three of use lived under one roof (1990). Boy that was an experience. I guess that is why i am on this site a lot and looking. Since then she has meet friend and they live at the beach. Keep the blogs coming have a better day tomorrow.

Last I knew you weren't obligated to go to the boyfriends mother's on mothers day, although it's usually a nice gesture. I went to my ex's mothers once(we weren't married)and all she did was rag at me all the time. Needless to say I never went again. Keep your chin up and cotton in your ears(you can use the cotton out of the Tylenol)and just smile and nod

I already did that 1Sir, the smile and nod thing, I was wondering 2 minutes later what the hell I was agreeing with her about. I have this habit/gift of being able to tune people out completely after they get to be too much, but of course you could be agreeing to just about anything at that point.

I hate the mother in law thing too. Mine (when I was married0 is a severe alcoholic and all she does is insult everyone in the room, and complain how terrible her life is.

Keep your chin up, be cordial, but dont lose sight of who you are.
