^ What Katie says.^

If you were me (and be glad you aren't ) you could tell her "I like canning. It keeps me sane. And the cost of canning is far cheaper than the cost of a psychologist or drugs". Then give her a big, cheesy grin!

You're right. I know I'll cry one day when she's no longer with us.

Himself and I got along famously with each of the other's Mom. Both parents, actually. I had an advantage going into the marriage - I was best friend's with his sister from sophomore year of high school, so their parents were "Uncle P..." and "Aunt J..." to me for years. If I knew they would eventually be my in-laws, I might not have teased Dad about his balding head and pot belly. In spite of that, they still loved me. Aww....

Canning is your therapy. Just like needlework and other crafts are mine. Thank her for her concern and then follow CG's advice. She is going to be your MIL as long as her son is your husband. (Hope it is for many, many years.) So you don't want her for an enemy.

The only thing that concerns me is why is she so worried about your finances? I don't even discuss with my children what they do with their money. It is an area I have always considered private. If I should choose to buy a Porterhouse steak, that is my business, not anyone else's. The only reason my kids know mine is because of my advanced years. They have the NEED to know, not the desire.

She just...asks. It feels kind of intrusive honestly. The hubby's tried to get her to stop asking questions like that and it just fuels her forward more. She's not a very good listener. She'd rather do everything to make her point.
