MIL crying about Thanksgiving pt 2
So DH decided on his own that he was going with me to my grandparents for Thanksgiving. I left it completely up to him what he wanted to do. Honestly, I think he would much rather go to my family's anyway, because while they have their faults, they are more pleasant to be around and there isnt usually any drama. But I still give him credit for having a spine this time.
MIL sent him a somewhat guilt trippy text earlier today asking about it, and when he told her we were going to my grandparents Thanksgiving day this year since we went to her house last year, she just sent back a thumbs up and per usual started posting her passive aggressive poor me memes on Facebook. Including one that said " I try to tell myself it is what it is, but deep down I wish it was different" with the caption "ironic." Of course, SIL chimed in with all the sad faces and likes on them. I'm sure there will be more since she tends to drag on these "injustices" against her for years, but I finally unfollowed her so I wont be seeing it. I cant handle the constant drama and negativity coming from MIL, SIL, and then also BM and SD. Too many drama queens in too close of proximity to me. And being completely honest, it makes me feel bad/guilty even though rationally I dont think it should.
Side note, DH has an older half sister that MIL lost custody of when she divorced. I'm really curious what she was like as a non custodial BM if this is what shes like with her adult kids. Dh told me once that his dad was the one that always went to pick up his sister for weekends, supposedly because his mom hated her ex so much she couldn't even bear to go there. I wouldn't be surprised if there was actually a restraining order or something.
