Holiday Slaughter: Surviving the In Laws

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I was told it would only be wed, thur, friday next week they were coming down. ONLY those three days. Fine, stay in my house, eat my food, terrorize me with mental warfare of opinions and babble that I do not care about....
BUT leave me my weekend.

My husband just now informed me 5 minutes ago NOT only are they staying during the week BUT also for the weekend. It is the weekend for Christmas. It is my sacred time of quietly wrapping the packages, finishing touches on packages and decorating.

Last minute shopping. Enjoying that I will have time off work. FINALLY have time off work. I have not taken any time off work in a very long time. I was looking forward to having a break. A vacation from a hectic semester. BUT NOOO

they are coming. This is happening. I am being invaded by weird people who act and talk and think like htey are my parents, but they aren't.

I am twenty eight years old and feel like a teenager around them being evaluated.

Words cannot describe this type of angry. I better stop typing about it now.

    OH MY! I'm sorry they are coming in and invading your space. At least you get to be at your house. I'm not even going to see my house for 4 days over the holidays b/c my in-laws live 1.5 hours away from us so we will be there Sat/Sun and then driving 2.5 hours to my parents house for Mon/Tues. The madness never really ends. But I do feel for you..hopefully they have their own room so maybe you can go hide someplace?

    It's sad to say but I will be glad when it's over and I can have my life back! Just remember our husbands are worth it and hang in there!

    So terribly sorry. That is really frustrating. Try to hang in there as best as you can and just remind yourself at least they aren't around ALL the time. emoticon
