Ok. I am pretty much sick and tired of my mother-in-law. I know that others my also have that same problem. There is not necessarily on big thing that has finally brought me to this point. Just an accumulation of a LOT of things along the way. She wasn't so bad before we had our first child last summer. But now that she is a grandmother she can really get under my skin. My wife thinks that I am mostly to blame. But I think that that has to do a lot with the fact that NOBODY ever tells my mother-in-law no (except me). She is handled with kids gloves from everyone else in the family. My father-in-law is great but honestly he is the most p-whipped guy I have ever met. So he coddles her and ususally has his lips planted firmly on her backside. My mother-in-law is a nice lady but she has issues that drive me nuts. Like the fact that she can be manipulative and very passive-aggressive. I know that our relationship over the past year has changed some. I don't think that she cares a lot for me at times. I can sleep all right with that fact. The only thing is that it is starting to bring a little tension between my wife and I. We have fought over it before. Nothing changes because my wife thinks that I am mostly to blame for the tension between her mother and I. Also even on the things that my wife agrees with me, she would never go to bat for me because NOBODY ever goes against her mother. Well I just needed to vent a little. Especially since we are leaving tomorrow to go camping with my in-laws for 5 days.
