Can we revisit Skid journaling her visits?
Because it really has me reeling lately.
MIL is really ramping-up her fake niceties with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner and all, wanting to ensure I engage with all of them, and it’s amplifying my anxiety that skid will be journaling DH’s (and mine?) every move, every word spoken, over Christmas.
Remind me again why this is not okay. I mean, she’s basically journaling just to hand it over to DH before she leaves. Like a “Gotcha!” of some sort. It’s also the subject of her visits with her therapist back home, per skid. She states her therapist is telling her to do this.
For me, this feels like an invasion of privacy and I’m not okay with giving her “material” for it.
How do I tactfully and constructively tackle this with him? DH was in agreement that this issue needed to be addressed upon her next visit via counseling (he and skid), but that looks like it’s not happening at this point.
