I have been married since april 2011. I love my husband dearly, he is the best man God could have ever blessed me with. But the package that came with him wasn't such a blessing. Since we the announcement of our engagement its been like WW3 with my MIL. I have tried to be nice, I have even moved 4 hours away, but nothing seems to fix things. Recently my husband and I hit a very hard financial downfall and had to move back to where our families live. And in turn we are stayin with family (yes even my monster in law) til the 3rd week in nov. until our house is ready to go. My mil has worked maybe 3 yrs out of her 47 yrs of living otherwise she has lived off the govn. or unemployment or a settlement from this that and the other for no real good reason. Now she is currently having to work for minimum wage at a gas station 2nd shift because she didn't go look for a job when she could have. I have been out of a job for 2 weeks and that's due to our recent relocation and already had two interviews. I cook the meals at her house do the laundry (mine and my hubby, his two sisters (16 & 19) and his mothers) do the dishes clean and do all the grocery shopping. She has yet to tell me thank you. She has fussed for folding the towels a way she doesn't like or bleaching the towels different then she does. I left dishes one night because I had a migraine and she asked why I didn't do the dishes. In our local newspaper is a sudoku puzzle that I do when I get a paper. Sunday I got up and went and got a Sunday paper for my mil and I. The Sunday paper has the coupons. Sunday was busy busy. Monday I went to get my puzzle and it had been clipped out of the paper!!! This is only the beginning of her spite. Does she just like me to my face? What do I do. I love my husband but so help me I'm not walking on egg shells for the rest of my life.
