  • hate her.

    i always used to smile at her when i went to their house, and she just looked at me like i was stupid. then she wanted my hubby to marry a church girl, and i am the complete opposite. also, after we were married, she told my mom she thought i was only using my hubby for his money and she said i was way too pretty for her son. I know thats a compliment, but wtf, she called my husband/her son ugly. Since then I cant stand her.

    and she doesnt talk english!!!!

  • Love her, she's a very loving and strong person. She currently has leukemia and is in the hospital, hopefully being cured. She only has a 30% chance of surviving.

  • love her. I asked her to come spend 3/4 weeks with us each year.

    I love her because she is complimentary. She is helpful. She raised an amazing man. She loves my kids and brings the best out in them. She is polite. She is just wonderful.

  • I love her, over there. KWIM? She is pastor of one of those strip mall churches that borders on cultism. She never has time for her first born grandchildren, but if one of her freak congregation calls, she's there 2 seconds ago with bells on. Don't get me started on how she enables her daughter, my SIL. Yeah, she can stay over there. We don't need her. That is all.

  • Love her but she can also annoy me so bad. So I guess it depends on the day...

  • Theoretically, I should love her. (She was a foster mother of many children, a daycare provider, loving & wonderful mother to my DH, generous and thoughtful at holidays, birthdays, etc.) But I just have an unsettled feeling about her. I HATE the way she treats her current husband - she is SO MEAN TO HIM....she treats both my daughter and I like we have always been in her family....but again, there is SOMETHING about her that doesn't seem I neither hate or love her...I'm just really leary of her.... (She lives across the country from me, so I have only been around her 4 times)

  • Hate is a very strong word.. I DISLIKE her. Why?... Because she lost her children a long time ago and has the nerve to tell me what to do with mine. She REPEATEDLY gives them things I tell her not to. Once she made my oldest DS so sick I had take him to the hospital. She has diarehha of the mouth talking about (in full disclousure and without sparing one minute detail) how she's had sex for money... did I mention the kids were right there??? I had to take them outside and HOPED they had not heard her... They did, because they asked me what a "Blow Job" was... Yeah, nice huh? She's an alcholic and a junkie ( I admit she's trying to quit). But when she's fiending.. OMGoodness. She once told my male neighbor she'd "Suck his d***", if he took her to the store so she could buy some wine coolers. When he said no she then said "We can do an*l".... Isn't she a sight to behold...So yeah I really REALLY Dislike her!!!
