So I currently am sitting here very pregnant and beyond frustrated. Friday hubby received a phone call saying that his mom would really like to come over and visit with us Sunday morning. Ok, no problem, any reason? She said that she would like to discuss with us her retirement hopefully at the end of this year around her birthday (November). Uh, ok, that isn’t our decision but sure! The next day hubby received another phone call from mom. This time she starts freaking out telling him not to mention her possible retirement Sunday as her BF is coming and he doesn’t know about it yet….. FUCK lady grow up already!!! Who cares! It doesn’t matter anyways and this Jr. Highschool BS is just that, BS!!! I got upset with hubby after he hung up for that reason, I reminded him that this is the same thing that she was doing once she started dating and wanted me to tell hubby that she had a BF! Ummm, NO! I am about ready to go out and buy you a freaking pair of big girl underpants already since you turn 65 this fucking year, I think it’s about time you probably have a pair!!! He has no say in if you retire or not. Hell you kicked him out of the house months ago because you didn’t want to even discuss the possibility of his kids moving in (because they asked once), so NO he has NO SAY in if you choose to retire or not. Just like hubby and I have no say! Is it what you want to do? Can you afford to do so? Do you want to? If the answers are YES, then FUCKING RETIRE!!!
Don’t worry, it gets better……
Backstory: At the beginning of December hubby and I purchased our first house! We moved 1hr away from MIL (with no traffic, 1 1/2hr with) so really not that far away. Plus, we all know how often she visited when we were 5-15 minutes away anyways. We are still excited as it is a better commute for hubby to his work and a smaller town vibe (we live in a pretty close knit community with amazing neighbours!). Housing prices were WAY more affordable this way, as quite literally the only way we would have been able to afford a house where we were was to honestly win the lottery.
After all of the freaking out about trying to make it our decision if she should retire or not (but don’t tell BF) we are dropped with another BOMBSHELL!!!! In case you are wondering, yup we aren’t allowed to tell her BF this one either!!! lol. In case you haven’t figured it out by now: YUP!!! We are told that she wants to MOVE CLOSER TO US!!! The reason that she want’s to retire we are told is because she has “DECIDED that she wants to be become a grandma!” Yup, you read that right! Let me repeat: SHE HAS DECIDED SHE WANTS TO BE A GRANDMA!!! Because she want’s to finally participate in our 19 month old son’s life and our second child’s life, means that she wants to move 15 minutes down the mountain from us and retire so that we can “hang out” during the week ALL THE TIME!!! YUP, apparently she has already started looking at condos. SHOOT ME NOW! SERIOUSLY! PLEASE SHOOT ME! I don’t even know how to respond to this especially since, ummm, she is forgetting that she has two other grandchildren too! One is 15 (shit, maybe 16 next month!) and the other 10! They live an hour the other direction from her (currently) and she actually is INVOLVED in their lives! So…. she is going to become my BFF and always be at my house and forget all about her granddaughters?
We are then told that she want’s to spend all morning with little one so that they will be at our house bright and early Sunday morning at 7am!!! No worries, hubby says as we are typically up by 5/6ish and little man goes for nap at 1, so you will have plenty of time to play. Yup, they showed up just after 10.
