    Hmmm, sounds a darned good idea. brings it all to a head, I suppose.

    Have no idea what she'd do. My guess is she'd cry poor poor me, everyone hates me, what have i ever done to anyone, I'm a good soul...Don't care either and that's the sad part. I feel like I should like this woman, and respect her at least as she is his mother...I just can't, and that makes me feel bad.

    DA, I don't know this woman at all, and she sounds like a self absorbed, control-freak with no people/social skills and a manipulative streak which she uses to get her own way.

    Be thankful that she brought your husband in the world, but don't respect her as a person. In my opinion, she doesn't deserve it.

    Perhaps you could talk to your husband about refusing her?

    Yes, shall do SSW. We are in no state to deal with her. She has been a nightmare and that's at the best of times.

    Sorry I have not been here. Yes I do agree that she really should not be with you if this is what your family does wish. Maybe a united front might set her back on her heels a bit as it does seem from your posts that she is used to rough riding her own way with you. Hugs

    Hmm

    If she does come, find two metal bin lids, and when you want her to shut up or go away, bang them together five times.

    If you can't quite bring yourself to do that, turn your back, walk away and imagine doing it.

    "NO" can be the best word. Keep the doors locked (I hope she doesn't have a key). Get your dog back for a bit. The one that wants to eat strangers. Or tell her you still have the dog (lie), and that you can't trust it with her.
