So, as my ILs were leaving (say hallelujah!) today, my MiL asks what our holiday plans are (again) and when they can come visit. My response was "thanksgiving." She then starts to tear up since I'm saying no to Christmas. No, just no. You don't get to play the manipulative games anymore. Her tears don't work on me, but they do on DH... Sigh. I hate the manipulation she does.
Back story to why I hate spending Christmas with them- 2 years ago I was 37w with DS. We spent Christmas Eve with the ILs and Christmas Day with my family. MIL called DH sobbing because they were spending Christmas alone. They came over for dessert, much to my dismay, after she put the guilt trip on DH. She was snapping photos of me specifically after I told her not to and threatened to break her camera. She realized I was serious after I snapped and grabbed for her camera when I caught her trying to secretly snap a photo of me. (We're talking a $1k plus camera, too... she does photography) She's never once attempted to take a photo of me without permission since then but she never once apologized for going against my wishes nor for the constant guilt trips she gives DH

Omg, today was the loooonnngggesssttt!! Yesterday we spent the day at my family's cabin. DD played hard core until 8 pm with cousins. She slept during the 2 hour drive home, and until 9 am, but was screaming more often than not today. May patents agreed to take her tonight so I could grocery shop alone, and then I had a flat tire. 😩😩😩 I then spilled water over a huge pile of papers on the table right as I was about to eat first meal of the day. I put DD to bed by 6 w/o books or songs. Hopefully tomorrow is better.
