Just to let everyone know I ended up talking to my husband about this situation because it was bothering me really bad. His response was as follows sorry about the language "I don't give a f****** damn about what she thinks about how we are raising our boys and she has no f****** right telling us that we need to be going to church and she is no longer welcome here; nor will she be doing anything more with our boys; and where does she come off telling us how to raise our boys when she has never had children of her own. And as far as "forcing" yourself on the rest of the family you don't need to be doing that either. And if we move no one is going to know where we are moving to". So that is his feelings about this. He wasn't happy and he also said that this weekend was not the time or place to be b******* at me or reading me the riot act about these things.
What would you say? This may get long--sorry. Here is the situation--
My sister is a very religious person goes to church all the time very involved with everything related to church. So here is the thing every time she comes into town(she lives 2 and 1/2 hours away) she is always questioning me to weather or not we are going to church and if we are doing everything we can about our financial situation and if things are getting resolved with it or not.
This is an every time thing and I don't know how to answer because when I do she jumps into me as to why or why not we are doing what we are(she only does this when it is her and I she doesn't do this in front of my husband). She is also always trying to tell me how to raise my boys(and she has no children of her own) and that I need to be doing this or not do this or do this a certain way or not do this a certain way and so on.
She was here this past weekend and we went to the Vermontville Maple Syrup festival and she was all over me for different things. She had me close to tears several times and I just wanted to get away from her(I know I shouldn't feel this way but when she starts preaching at me and everything that is the way I feel).
She also made a few comments that she doesn't like being used by people and that it hurts her when she tries to help people and they just let things go and so on. My question is what would you do or say? I am not a person that likes to cause ruffles or make people mad but my nerves can't take much more of this from her.
BTW we were raised Baptist and went to church every Sunday and Wednesday and went to Awana and all those things associated with the church when I was little; so I know some of the things she is saying stems from the way we were raised.
