My MIL is ridiculous. Honestly the woman has NO common sense and the only conversation she is capable of having is small, idle chit chat that isn't worth my breath to respond back to. I mean it's so freaking random about shit no one cares about....like the great deal she got on meat that day or how many beads she bought for her necklace. Blah blah, blah blah, blah blah blah BLAH. Can you tell I HATE it when she is here, I HATE it when she is in my house and I HATE being forced to make conversation with her....hence the reason I am "studying" for my GRE's right now and bitching to all of you guys before I pop or say something utterly snarky on her not so smart ass ;-)
For example, for the last 15 minutes she has been talking about: her cable and her wireless phone discount, which lead her into a conversation of all the other discounts she gets and where and how much, etc (she works for a government agency), her pots and pans she got on discount, her older than dirt color tv, her broken coffee pot, the oysters she bought for dinner.....do you see my agony here?
Oh AND....DH's Aunt sent us pictures of Thomas as baby and there was one person we didn't recognize holding him so we asked his mom who it was, and she said she wasn't sure. OK, thats fine...it's been 34 years and maybe it was someone's friend, girlfriend, etc, BUT then she goes on to say "Well, I guess it could be me, I'm not really sure" Um, are you freaking kidding me?!?! You are so flighty that you don't recognize YOURSELF in pictures.....Holy Jesus.
Oh and you want to know how she shows off her mothering skills today (and why I NEVER want her alone with my child); DH worked out this morning and his legs are sore so when he got up a bit slowly she asked what was wrong and he told her. Do you know what her response was?....and I quote..."Ha Ha Ha...serves you right".....Says the woman who got gastric bypass surgery 4 years ago (which btw, although not a small woman, she was NOT obese enough for medical reasons) then gained all the weight back because she doesn't have a healthy bone in her body.....
OK, I could go on and on, but it honestly raises my blood pressure so I'm stopping now, lol.
