I have decided I'm cutting of contact with my SIL. I don't think there is any other choice. I don't want to fight, but I don't need to explain myself to anyone. For years, she tells us how to spend our money, how to raise our kids, tells us everything she thinks we are doing wrong, when it's ok to visit FIL in the home, lies, manipulates, accuses of us stealing, and found out she was, talks trash on us to other family members and I'm just plain tired. I'm tired of feeling like I'm on trial. This is affecting my entire life and the only way it stops is cutting off contact.
Her husband calls the other night saying he booked a cabin for all the family to hang out. I obviously have no desire to cohabit-ate with them whatsoever. Shell get drunk and start spewing shit at us in front of the entire family. her husband says do it for the kids. I say no, because I'm not going to spend the week getting talked about, my kids hear it. I feel like maybe she should have thought about that before she treated us like shit. I feel bad for the other family that will be there because I know they want us to go. But I Already know what's gonna go down. What should I tell tell the other family members so I don't talk shit on her like she does me? They are going to ask why we aren't going. Going is NOT an option so please don't tell me to just go.
