    Ok seriously, I'm getting pissed at the lack of etiquette that DH's family has.

    His mother called last night asking us if we've received a wedding card from her sister (yes, we did last week), she then asked K to call her sister personally to thank her for the card (ummmm no, she'll be receiving a thank-you card in the mail, just like everyone else), then told him that he should call them to invite them to our AHR (again, they'll be getting an invite in the mail mom!!!) and THEN, she proceeded to ask him how much money they gave us! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!! It's none of her f'ing business! Who does that? I mean ok, if you offer to give up that info to your family, then that's fine, but you don't go around asking how much money you got for the wedding! GRRRRRRRR!!! It's pissing me off!

    After all that, K tells me that she wants to make us a cake for our AHR (she already made me a cake for my shower which I was greatful for) and that would be her wedding gift to us. Ummmm ok, so you want your gift eaten by everyone else?? I mean, I know her heart is in a good place and she means well, but seriously, a nice picture frame would be great - at least it'll be something we can keep forever!

    Oh so K has an 89 year old grandmother whom he's very close with. We had plans to give her one of our wedding pictures in a beautiful frame as a gift. We come home from Jamaica and go and visit her and she already had 3 pictures of our wedding given to her by K's mom (they came back a week before us). WTF?? It's not YOUR wedding, it's OURS!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for ruining the gift we were going to give Grandma biatch!

    K is so frustrated with his family and their lack of etiquette which of course, pisses me off too! Why oh why are people like this?!!? Is it because I'm having a bitchy day today or does this seem unreasonable to anyone else?

    Thanks for letting me do this little rant, I needed it! this is how I feel ------> lol

        Sorry about the PITA MIL...but this made me for some reason!

        I don't think your over reacting...but sometimes people just don't think before they do or say something. In other words, some people are just dumb! lol
        Its only February, so why don't you do up a calendar of wedding pics for K's g'mother?? You could have it in less than a week I'm sure!

          Ooooh, good idea on the calendar!!

          Lisa, I've never really seen/read you in such a bad mood, so I can tell this is really bothering you!

          Will K say anything to mommy dearest? I mean she sounds like she has good intentions, but going about it in all the wrong way! Mom's do that sometimes... and just need a reminder to butt out!

            yeah I know Amy, I'm just sorta having a bad day and all this stuff is just pissing me off as it happened last night! K will tell him mom to butt out if she says anything else - he's pissed too!

            Amanda - that's a good idea! I'll pass that on to K to see what he thinks!

            I don't want to sound like an ass because his family are really good people, just lack in certain areas, that's all! lol

              The whole post made me completely LMAO! Yes I agree it doesnt sound like your not having a great day but I can also understand why your MIL is annoying the hell out of you. Shooting another idea along the lines of the calendar one, have you considered giving the grandma one of those Snapfish picture book? I was given one of all my Bridal shower pictures rather than just one and it was amazing. It had like a small story line in it all I loved it. Hope you get some peace soon!

                  ok so I'm not as upset today. I guess I just have to learn to let these things roll off my back, like you said G!

                      I can tell you that my mother would totally ask me all the same questions..
                      did you get the card?
                      Did you send a Thank you?
                      how much did you get?
                      and think it was all perfectly ok to do so....and get miffed if I didn't tell her how much - she likes to keep track for future events...so she says....but I know she's just being nosy.
                      I think mothers forget that there are boundaries...she annoys the living daylights out of me so you are definitely allowed to be pissed!

                      As for ruining your gift...don't let it....I like Amanda's idea of the calendar, or you could do a collage frame with pics too.
