I am so glad to be home. We went to see dh's mom and cousin/sis.Sis wanted us to stay in her summer house on the beach with MIL so we did.It's a very nice place except MIL had the heat on 82 and would not allow us to turn it off.She was cold.She had on two sets of long handles and sweats every day. :shrug: Dd was sweating and wouldn't sleep.We opened our bedroom windows and got a little relief as it was in the 70's at night.Mil wanted to eat at the most high price restaurants she could find and when dh told her couldn't afford it she became sullen. :grump: We went to one over priced restaurant and ate dinner and she told dh that is what she wanted to eat every day of his stay that her stomach couldn't handle cheap food and only high price restaurants have good food. :shrug: She complained bitterly the whole time we were there.If I live to a hundred I hope I never become so bitter and grumpy.She talked to dh as if he was stupid calling him uneducated, because she said quote "he didn't go to college".Dh went to college,has a BS and is working on his Masters.I don't understand why she refuses to acknowledge this. We're eating breakfast and she announces to everyone he's uneducated.I quickly spoke up and said that's not true and she goes "oh when did he finish" as if she doesn't believe he's finished.She kept saying dh will have trouble getting a job because "he's uneducated" This just makes me mad.I had to hear how smart sil was and everyone else in her family as though mine were dumb hicks.My younger son wants to be a doctor and she said it was because her family had smarts and he had gotten it from that that side. My grandfather was a doctor and his father before him and several others in our family,but I guess they were dumb doctors. I let it go.No sense arguing with her.She is always right. She refused to take a bath the entire visit. :nono: Why one can only imagine.There was a walk in shower with two seat built in so even though she is old she could have got into it with ease.Instead she kept powdering herself. :hand: At night she grease herself with lard ! :shrug: There must be some mental illness that causes this behavior.My oldest dd son said lets roll her flour when she greased herself before bed.With the heat she should be done by morning.LOL. I told him that was what the powder was for. On the bright side she gave dd a set of glass ware for her hope chest that her mother bought in 1902.I thought it was very nice in her and it will be very meaningful to dd one day.I asked her to write dd a note to put with it for when she's grown, telling about how it came into the family.I am so glad to be home.Dh turns into a grump when he's around her and takes it out on me and oldest son. After we left we went by my family's.I'll write about it later as dd is calling now for her mommy.
