Whadya Do When There’s Nothing You Can Do?

thats all folks

I am so done with my in-laws I’m spittin’ bullets. I’ve always known my Father-In-Law is not a nice person. We’ve had to deal with this thoughtlessness for years. However, today this self-same cowardly FIL sent a vitriolic text to my dear, sweet, always kindhearted, thoughtful husband over us sending old family photos to his daughter, Steve’s sister.  (Note: they all live together in their homemade hell.) The photos were given to us from the MIL to send to each kid as her health declines. I did as I was asked out of kindness. But, apparently, now the SIL has her knickers in a twist over receiving them. And, believe me, it’s over absolutely nothing! There was nothing evil or weird in the photos. The SIL has finally slipped into neutral and gone off the deep end. And, if she ever comes anywhere near me again, I’m gonna place my foot on her backside and shove her over that end! So, Steve said, and I concur that that is that. No more dealing with these nutcases. Life is too short to constantly be insulted and upset, especially over unimportant events. I could write a novel on all the insults we’re endured over the years.

So, stick a fork in me ’cause I’m done with these people. And if they show their faces around here again, it’s gonna get handed to them in a shoe box. I’ll still pray for their well-being, but yep, I’m done.

finish line

Rant over. We may now resume our regularly scheduled programming …

  1. And I do not blame you one single bit. A person can only take so much, and best to let it go, and move on. Your and Steve’s happiness and peace of mind is the important thing now. God bless you sweet friend.

    1. Quite right. The scale has tipped to far over now. I can’t save it. They’ll have to come back, hat in hand, for anymore interaction. Gosh, sure don’t like it being that way but my own mental health (what’s left of it) is at stake here. 🙂 Thank you for the kind words. You’re always so thoughtful. Perhaps pray for them … and us? Thanks. ❤

  2. The SIL is mad because you sent her old family photos?!!! Ya, “That’s ALL Folks!” is right. Good for you to coming to that conclusion once and for all! Do they live far from you? Sorry you have to even read that vitriol!

    1. I don’t like treating anyone that way anymore, but I am done with them. So is Steve. Poor man. He’s so good to everyone. To be treated like that … anyway, thanks for understanding. Thankfully, they live over 300 miles away in South Florida (or, as I call it, hell). They can have it. Good luck to ’em.

      1. I can well imagine that’s not your personality….no matter how good it is to take care of ourselves, and our husbands, it still doesn’t feel great, does it. God bless you both!!

    1. Thanks Terri. 🙂 Guess so. I’m just so weary of the drama and then they try to make us the Bad Guys (probably makes them feel big, or something?). It breaks my heart, but the welcome mat has been put away. I’m over it. It’s done. We’ll not interact with them further but they’ll still be on the prayer list. May God have mercy on us all. Y’all have a blessed evening. I see there’s a new Tropical Storm out there off Florida coast. ‘Tis the season, you know.
