My plate is overfull....but I love the big lug and he's a definite keeper. Makes it all worth the effort when he gets it that he's finally clicking along like he should be.

He's great, I'm assuming he's adopted.

Thanks for the kind words, it helps to know that my situation is screwed up to other people too, lets me know that I'm not the crazy one.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20

Dumas- your MIL sounds like a piece of work that's for sure! I don't know why MIL are like this? I have promised myself that I will not act this way with my children when and if that time comes! That website that was posted by another poster (forget who sorry) called mother in law from hell was a great thing to read! There are many more women dealing with this and it just seems to be getting worse and worse! We are not in this alone even though sometimes it seems that we are! I'm glad your husband is starting to turn things around for himself but sorry your MIL can't see it that way!

Update on the trip! Well it was better than I expected but I'm still not happy!

A week before the trip hubby told him his parents werent coming because I didn't want them there..so I said fine no problem I can handle that! So the whole week nothing else was every brought up about them coming I figured they weren't since he said they weren't well AFTER we get to the lake house and un packed he mentions oh yeah my parents are coming...WTF...he waited until we were there to tell me..I was so PO at him I flipped a lid LOL so needless to say he kept that from me because he didnt want me to b**** the whole trip or whatever..well hello you just made it worse for yourself! So anyways they ended up renting a hotel near by and not stayign with us which was manageable and I coudl deal with that! They were only there one day and spent most of the tiem out on the boat with the guys while we stayed on the beach with the dogs so needless to say we didn't have to spend a lot of time with them so it ended up turning out nicely! Even after my husband kept that from me! I was really upset about that I don't like that one bit and won't tolerate him not telling me something because he knows i'll get mad! So I just wanted to let everyone know who has been following and giving advice that it didn't turn out to bad :)

I'm so glad to hear that the in laws weren't totally intrusive. Its unfortunate that your husband felt the need to tell a fib so he could keep his mom happy and in the loop. I think before you plan another vacation, you need to have the rules set in stone.
I have in laws that will "show up" if they know we are going somewhere. We have learned to keep mum about vacation and holiday plans when it comes to family. We have gone as far as to lie to them about holiday plans just so they don't invite themselves. Maybe you need to get that sort of agreement settled with your hubby for future outings.

LOL fat chance to get him to keep anything from mommy dearest! I know that will pretty much never happen unfortunately :( but it turned out ok and your right next vacation I will ensure that this wont happen again! It sucks that you have to lie to your inlaws so they stay away LOL but atleast your hubby is willing to do that! Lucky you :)
