This is the response I got from my SIL when I told her that my kids would go to Catholic schools.
Here’s what happened:
I noticed that our property taxes were going to the public school board (we own a house with my SIL and her husband). I said to my husband in front of SIL that maybe we should change our taxes to go to the Catholic school board and my husband agreed.
Then my SIL seemed upset and said that diverting our taxes to the CSB would be more expensive and then she turns to me and says, “Why would you want to send your kids to Catholic schools anyway.” (in a very sarcastic voice).
Side note: She and her husband are infertile and it seems she resents me for being able to have children. I am pregnant right now and it’s like she hates looking at me right now.
So today, I call the property tax line and NO it’s not more expensive…taxes remain the same. Then I call the CSB and they tell me that I can fill out a form and divert 1/2 the property taxes to the CSB as tenants in the house (even though we own the house too), so it’s a good compromise and my daughter will attend the Catholic school in our area.
I know that my SIL is going to talk to my husband and try to fill his mind with stuff telling him that public schools are better and that our daughter should attend the local public French emersion school, etc. :mad: Just last month, a study came out saying that the Catholic school system in my province is better than the public school system.
My SIL is just so jealous of me and she always has to stick a thorn in my side!!! :mad: It’s not my fault I’m pregnant again while she is unable to conceive!!! I pray for her, but find it very difficult b/c she can be such a _______. You guys can fill in the blank…:mad:
Any suggestions on how to handle this so it won’t escalate into a fight with DH, SIL and me??? I know this could blow up quite easily b/c my SIL is so jealous of me.
