Default My Mother In Law Pt.2

Well, the old sea hag sent us a check for $200 to buy the kids their gifts. It is the first time EVER she's done something like that for us. Then early on sunday morning she called and told my wife she's not getting a divorce from her husband and that she had mentioned to him about the $200 she sent. He asked her what can we possibly get with that money, so he is sending us $300. This act still doesn't change the way I feel about her but I appreciate not hers but his gesture.

I missed Part 1, but why wouldn't you appreciate the $200 from her? She didn't have to give you guys anything for the kids' gifts.

It is the first time EVER we got 25.00 a piece for my twins from their "Grandma". 200.00 is better than 1.00 they get in an envelope every year. This year it was 25.00 a piece. If my parents were alive, they would spoil them silly!
My other SIL usually only gives 5.00 a piece for our kids *(their niece and nephew)...they have no kids--I call them "dinks (double income, no kids!)... this year they gave 25.00 a piece. Almost fell over...
Christmas miracles do happen!!!

Be glad you got 200.00-300.00... We haven't even received that in 4 years my twins are here!

In par1 I mentioned she only worried about my sister in law's son. He was the only one she would send stuff and actually come visit. She would never call us to find out how her other grandkids were doing. She has always been a two-faced kind of person and my kids (thank God) don't need anything from her. I know it is wrong but that's just the way I feel about her.

500 bucks for little kids? That's a huge amount of money, IMO. Awesome.

Believe me, that's more we'll probably ever get from their Grandma in their life!!

I know it sucks having family you don't like! BUT it could be worse...
