My birthday is on Thursday the 30th and my MIL wants to take me out for the day tomorrow...

I love her to death but she makes me crazy with her personal questions. They seem innocent but I am sure she is plotting my death. What can I do to avoid or redirect her personal questions?

  • Happy Birthday you share the exact same birthday as me :) Its your bday! If you dont want her to ask personal questions and generally dont like her say you have plans! If you do go give her one word answers and try changing the topic.

  • o my changing the topic always ends up very weird. I guess she just has a memory that never quits. She re-asked me a question I dodged answering over 3 weeks ago. I love her and love being with her and going out with her but honestly I think she is a bored woman who has only me and my DH as company. LOL

  • Change the topic, or if they are too personal, let her know that you don't feel comfortable sharing.
