  1. Christmas In-law debockle

    I'm posting hoping some other daughter-in-laws and their "experiences" can help me in figuring out what the next step should be in my DH and my "Debockle" (what we're calling it).

  2. Pregnant on purpose?

    My DXH's youngest brother got married a few years ago. One of the brothers lived 2.5hrs away by flight across the sea. They couldn't come back.

    Anyway, she said the reasons was because I didn't cook for my ex.

  5. I am looking for magazine atricle. How I got my mother in law running for the door.

    I am looking for a magazine article that I read in one of the womens magazines. How I got my mother in law running out or for the door. It starts out with the mother in law arriving at her sons house and the room she is put in doesn't even have a stop for her to put her purse down anywhere let alone her suitcase.
