Kind of want to just tell MIL to F off
So DH and I got in a fight because he wants an axe throwing board in a garage and when he asked what I thought about it I said I didnt think that was a great idea. Because our garage has too much stuff in it to get broken and it doesnt meet the safety requirements suggested for that type of thing. So anyway DH right away starts pouting that I never let him do what he wants (bullsh*t) and that he has no say about his own house (nvm that my response to the majority of his suggestions is I dont care). Skipping all the details of that stupid fight, towards the end he made a comment about me "running away" from his mom when shes here. At first I was confused what he was talking about and then figured he must have been talking about last time she was here that I took my time coming out to greet her since she showed up early.
Well thinking about it more now after, that's totally a comment he used to make to BM to make her feel insecure.
Now do you think I want a relationship with his mom? No. Do I care about fostering a good relationship with her for the kids? Also no. She treats them like crap and I try to limit contact with her as much as possible. The ONLY reason I put up with her at all and maintain a polite but distant stance with her is for DH. So if hes going to attempt to cut me down with that I kind of want to just let MIL have it next time shes here and makes a stupid comment. Or just call her out which is guaranteed to lead to a huge blowout. DH and his self centered little pr*ck self can pick up the pieces.
