Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

it's basically friendly blocking, right?

 SO's mom is pretty unhappy with me (I won't go into why).  I don't agree with her being as angry with me as she is so I'm not changing anything.  The only thing is that I do post about what I'm up to, pictures of what I'm up to and I tag and am tagged in posts and at places with others sometimes and I'm thinking that this isn't helping with the problem with SO's mom.  I'd thought about blocking her but I think that would just make her angrier so I changed my settings so that she can't see anything I or my friends post but she can still see my pictures etc.  I'm kind of afraid that she'll figure out what's going on because she checks facebook every morning.

Has anyone ever done this sort of friendly blocking?  How did it go and did they figure out they weren't seeing anything new you'd posted?

 I normally don't care but these people wouldn't let me pay for after school care for the kids and instead changed their work schedules to watch them and they own my house so I'm not trying to piss them off lol

I would need to know why she is mad... but in general I think using FB as a tool/weapon is HORRILBY CHILDISH.

"These people" = mil & fil?

You are living in their home and they are babysitting your child for free?  And you think they are "too mad" over somethng.  Oh hell... Im dying to know what it is.  Thier son can not support his own family and you think they are "too mad"?  You must tell us before we get the wrong idea bout you.

You could post a few things and change the settings on those post so she can see them. None the wiser.

If we knew what happened it would be helpful but from what you said i'd give her a break. She sounds like a good person. I'd just sort out the problem. Sometimes we don't think we are wrong when we really are, but I do understand. My mil has been mad at me for things I refuse to apologize for because she overreacted.
