A whole week with my FIL (rant)

I've met my FIL a total of four times prior to this week. We see him about once a year. He's pretty much my dh's best friend so I try to be supportive. But UGH!!

Instead of him coming to visit at our house this time, he got a condo for us in tahoe, which was nice. But slightly irritating that we had to drive 7 hours to get here. And he never gave my husband directions or an address to where we're staying (he actually told us there is no address) and we came up to the lake the wrong way and had to spend an extra hour and a half driving around the lake to get to our destination. With a screaming 2 year old.

He's not my fave but I'm tolerant. But last night he said he wanted to take us to a casino to the buffet for dh birthday. I said "oh on the south side? Cause that's where my map says it is" well I guess he didn't hear me or didn't pay attention cause we drove 45 mins to the north side of the lake (he had said we'd be there in 20 mins) and it wasn't there. So the men folk decided we'd continue the additional hour to the south side. Again, with a screaming 2 year old. If I'd known I would have packed a DVD player for her or something. But he didn't even bother to look up where he was going. Ugh. Then it took an additional hour to get back to the condo.

Today his girlfriend has joined us. He's back with her for the fourth time since dh and I started dating and I KNOW she is a liar and I really don't like her. They were gone on a hike alllllll day and got back an hour ago and said dh and I could go out and they'd watch dd but then they went in their room and have been doing who knows what since they got home and dh and I have been sitting here ready and waiting.

Two more days...wish me luck!

That almost sounds like a friend I have, especially with the waiting part. She asks me to take her somewhere, I get to her house and wait for hours while she either begins fighting with her SO and/or reading web comics, watching videos, or playing on WoW. Good luck! Just smile and nod your head, unless they really piss you off!
