Ugh, I wish she would leave her comments to herself!

I don't know if she does it intentionally or not, but my MIL will make a comment every now and then on FB that seems like its a total jab at me and I want to rip my hair out.

I went back to school (online) to finish getting my Associates degree that I started 15 years ago.  My DH is going for his Bachelor's degree.  Well I have a lot of trouble putting things into words, at least as far as writing essays go, so DH has to coach me alot.  I wish I was better at it but I'm not.  So he was talking about his assignment and she comments about how busy he is and that its great that I have him to help me (which I totally appreciate, believe me) and that its like he's taking 2 classes, his and mine.  It just set me off cause its like she thinks I don't do anything at all, and believe me, I bust my ass.

He just defended me thank goodness.  Told her I do the majority of the work on my own, he just gives me ideas, sometimes helps me with writing my introductions (I have the hardest time with those, I don't know why).

Anyway, its because of this (my inability to write essays without struggling) that I decided not to go for my Bachelor's degree.  I can't take another 2-3 years of being stressed out while trying to write a paper.  DH has enough on his plate w/ his own degree program, and our boy needs attention that two of us going to school at the same time is taking from him.
