I realize that not every one has family gatherings with their in laws. I also realize that some families have a nice time and every one is thankful and merry. This question is not directed at you! For those of you who, like me, have hectic holidays with the in laws, what thing(s) are a must do for you to keep calm, keep the peace, not pull your hair out? :)

Well, we make our own dinner at home when we go to my MIL's house because she really can't cook anymore (over cooked turkey, bacon grease gravy, and everything has a ton of salt in it). If hubby plans on staying for the whole day we will take separate vehicles so the girls and I can leave early. I also keep captain morgan under the sink for when she comes to visit and complains about anything and everything and tries to tell me how I do all things wrong. If she invites herself for a holiday I also try to make sure I invite at least some of my family so that I have solace. The way I get through it all is to keep reminding myself that she's the only parent hubby has left (and secretly curse the fact that the good parent went first).
