mother in law left this morning and I am so glad to see her leave! Her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) was to difficult for her to stay here with. She ended up leaving for a week to visit another relative She came back Sunday night and left Tuesday morning. She was miserable here. She told husband that she doesn't touch things after difficult child 2 because his hands so often are in his pants. The disapproval and contempt she has for all of us was palpable. Everything from how we dress and clean the house to what we do for entertainment. I found it hard to do anything because I knew she was watching and disapproving of every action. It was ridiculous. She came to help husband find a better or 2nd job. The second day here she told us she wouldn't be helping the way we thought she would. Her idea of helping was to pester husband to make sure he was on task. The day before she came husband found out his company is laying him (and 400 other people) off. His last day is January 24th. He is very motivated right now to get a job. And unlike before the lay off was announced he has been looking and getting interviews. Last night easy child 2 was throwing up. mother in law told me what the standard practice was in the hospital she used to work at. (She was a labor and delivery tech; not a nurse.) I said that my pediatrician recommends we do something else. mother in law went in her room and sulked. Didn't come out until it was time for her to leave this morning. Didn't take the gift we got with her. I am so mad at her. I'm trying to not be mad. She isn't even here right now. I don't want to be mad. I just want to forget about her for a few years. So why am I having such a hard time letting this go?
