I can't stand anyone in my husband's family. This is one reason why we are moving 900 miles away next month. I am dreading Easter before we go. They're ALL going to be here. All.

My IL's make me dread every birthday and holiday. Either it is a monster guilt trip over us loving my family so much more, mil trying to take over my own children's birthdays, them offering to take Xmas eve instead of Christmas day so they can turn around and tell everyone we didn't even visit on Xmas, or them insisting on taking me out for my Bday so I can sit there while no one even speaks english (although they easily could) and then no one says a word to me while my dh sits there feeling horribly about their behavior. They take every day that should be special and crap on it. Every year we pull away more and more and it doesn't have to be this way.

Yup, I dread Easter and all holidays and family events.  HATE IT!  My in-laws are uneducated, close-minded, unhygenic, mubblers that have nothing intelligent or interesting to say!  I cannot tolerate my dh's siblings.  They are soooo rude and overbearing.  And there are so many kids that run around screaming that you can't hear yourself think, which is fine for that family seeing as they have troubles creating intelligable thoughts! 

I dread the holidays, but I do it for my dh.  I go and I sit through the bullshit for him..  I put up with so much crap - for him!

Nope. I love SO's parents. I kind of want to go see them.

I pretty much dread every event that I have to spend with my ILs. Luckily there is nothing much coming up. I am eternally thankful that we don't celebrate the same holidays so I don't have to invite them for Christmas, Easter, etc.

The ex-in laws are coming into town to see the kids. I am so not wanting to see them as they blame me for the divorce.

No. My BIL and his wife aren't coming to MIL's for Easter so we have no worries. If they were it would be a miserable day.
