I have bit my tongue for more than twenty years when my husband's grandmother says sh** to me. UPDATE
I don't know if I can do it tomorrow. She thinks dh is perfect at all times and if anything goes wrong, it must be me. Here are few typical, family gathering, grandmaisms.
"You look like you have put on more weight. Don't you think that is unfair to ***. Don't you think he deserves better than how you look?"
What I WANT to say, "I weigh twenty pounds more now than I did when I married him and I was FAT then. If he didn't want a fat wife, he shouldn't have been a dumb ass and married one!"
One of my children will say, "look what mommy bought me" and she will say "Mommy doesn't buy you anything. Daddy buys it all. She doesn't have a real job." Mind you, I home school my children and do EVERYTHING having to do with the house, bills, and kids. DH is the one that wanted me to be home with the kids and she acts like I am friggin sponging off of my own husband! Forget what I want to say, just throw something at her at this point.
Then she will tell my oldest while I am not in the room that he needs to cut his hair because he looks like a girl. He likes his hair and it makes him feel like crap. The kicker? DH wears his hair in a ponytail!
Okay, I am done for now. I needed to get that off my chest. If you hear about a crotchety old lady being assaulted with a loaf of pumpkin bread on the news tomorrow, consider that I could be in need of some bail.
She was perfect...........it was amazing. lol I was pretty ready to finally say something and didn't have to.
