MIL is here for a visit. Thankfully only a day.
Tame compared to other times, but irritating. She keeps trying to do things that would take my place. Like go into the kitchen to cook breakfast. MrH told her no thanks, if he needed help (he usually does Saturday breakfasts) his wife would help.
Then they went out and got lunch but were short a box of fries. She wanted MrH to share hers. Again, he said his wife was sharing them.
It may not seem like much, but she has issues where she competes with me. Down to dressing like me.
What got me the most though was when she talked to my son, she refers to me as "Holly" but MrH as "Daddy."
I find that as I have gotten healthier and have out up with too much crap in my M, I am less inclined to put up with extra crap from the ILs.
When she directly addresses me, I've basically been doing what she always does when I try to talk to her...I pretend I don't hear anything.
It seems to irritate her.
ETA: FIL has invited himself up for a week, it was supposed to be today but it got put off because of the MIL visit. So there will be more posts like this I'm guessing. "Being in love" first moved them to promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep the promise. *CS Lewis*
