Toots, stock up big time - you don't ever want to run out.....

I am blessed that my MIL is an angel - she is so loving and caring and understanding. I am truly blessed.

Mine's nice, and we get along. SIL gets under my skin sometimes, though. Both arrive on Saturday for Christmas.

My brother just got engaged. My SIL-to-be is shallow and stupid. Her presence makes me cringe. I'm going to have to be the good brother and make happy for the next several (months?).

From now on, I'm being proactive, though.

My wife's sister, whom I really like, and my brother are perfect for each other. I mean this in the sense that I could avoid two more sets of in laws if they got together. I'll be pushing for this for however long it takes.

Maybe the fact that I have not spoken to and refuse to deal with my MIL for about 15 years tells you how she is!!!!!! I'm lucky that the only son-in-law I have is a really good guy (especially to my daughter and the grandkids) and it is easy to be a good MIL to him. It makes me feel good when he calls me with a cooking question; did I tell y'all that he is a darn good cook too? LOL!!

I'm sorry to laugh, and I don't mean to make lightly of your problems, but your situations sounds like the setting for a great comedy series.

I suggest you have a glass of wine or a valium try to smile a lot.


In my case, I've had three sets of in-laws, most all of whom have been fine people. The MILS all had issues with me, but then, I married 3 men who were only children. (By the way, I am also an only child, so that cuts down on the in-laws a lot.)
But my second MIL and my own mother were real demons at times, and my mother, in particular, spoiled a lot of holidays.

my MIL is long gone, but......if your criteria for yours being an angel is that she buys you a nice Christmas present......I think you really know your own answer....ROFL

I was blessed with one of the nicest mil's. She was a very caring and generous lady. She had a very rough life but you never heard her complain. I thank God for her and I miss her very much.
