Sorry, but I need advice and I really need to vent. Since receiving a total of 56 pages of insults from my MIL in January, my husband wrote them a letter and told them if they couldn’t accept me as part of the family, there would be no relationship between them. He also told them not to send anything to our children in the mail (they send their bday gifts, xmas gifts, etc in the mail instead of hand delivering them to avoid us) because it only confuses them since we have tried to invite them over 5 times and they REFUSE to come because my insane MIL has “issues” with us and she “can’t face us”. They have not seen our children since May of 2005 (our youngest child who is their first and only grandson was 5 weeks old).
Well, today I received 3 valentine cards…one for each of our children. Although she didn’t write their return address on the envelope I KNOW it is from them. She called me “STUPID” 6 times in her 56 page letter, so she evidently thinks I am not smart enough to recognize her handwriting :rolleyes: . We have both decided not to give the children the cards, but should I send them back “return to sender” (keep in mind there is no return address - so I would have to write it in) or do I put it in one big envelope with a letter hilighting where we specifically asked for them not to send anymore things in the mail?
My MIL is really insane, and I am so SICK of her doing what she wants. She has NO respect for me as her son’s wife and NO respect for her boundaries. My FIL is the same way. I am so sorry to vent this way, but I really need advice. Please HELP!!!
