MiL sent me a long text asking me to go to her fathers on Sunday Dh's grandfathers and take him to see her mother and get him dinner and make sure he takes his meds. She will be out of town again for the weekend in the RV. This will be the 3rd weekend in a row that they have gone gallivanting in the RV.
I dont really want to do this, this is a huge, huge favor to her. You know how I feel about her and how they try and take advantage of my generosity. I really dont feel like it is my responsibility. She has two siblings and I think they should pitch in and help. I have never asked her for anything and when she visits she never asks how I am doing or whats going on with me and never asks about Dd. If I do start talking about whats going on with me she will take over the conversation and twist it so that it is all about her or what ever she is going through. So I feel like she dosent even really really care about me and this would take a huge chunk of my only day to get caught up on house chores.
I will be going to go see Fs on Saturday all day leaving early and coming home late so Sunday is the only day I have to do my house chores, laundry, tidying up, etc. This is the day she wants me to do this. I feel on the other hand that if I dont do it she will be bitter about it and secretly hold a grudge. I feel really put out that she is even asking me to do this. I dont have a mother and I wanted her to be my mother figure and she just didnt feel it or step up to the plate. Just even calling Me not dh and inquiring about how I am doing would be huge for me. It would mean the world to me but she cant even do that in person. Dh has to work on Sunday or else Im sure she would ask him to do it. I dont want to do this.........
What would you do if you were in my position? Oh I like grandpa, he dosent really say much, just sits back and eats his food and drinks his beer.
