Or not.

I'm still here guys. I'm still reading you and trying to comment. I'm just slowing going insane. Down....down.....down....

Whittling away my sanity one day at a time.

Just thought I'd let you know, just in case you were wondering.

Also, NO, I'm not dramatic. In case you were wondering that as well.

If its been so long since I posted and you can't even remember who I am or what I'm talking about, I'm Melinda, and I have an in-law problem.

They're still here. And they will STILL be here until Sunday. SUNDAY people. I'm ready to collapse just thinking about it. And after I read that, my migraine settled in again. And by settled in, I mean it flared its ugly bulgy eyed head in a burst of throbbing power.

I don't want this to sound wrong, because I really do like my in-laws. They just don't like me.
Well, it's not that they don't like me....well, maybe, I'm not sure. It's just a stressful time, all happening at an inconvenient time for everyone, with a lot of unpleasant things that have to get done before a funeral. I get that. It just hasn't been the best moment for me. I'm trying to handle this gracefully, but I'm ending up looking like a hippo doing break dancing. Darn it.

Writing this down actually made me feel a teensy bit better, but maybe thats just the migraine meds I took, who knows? I'm going to go cry myself to sleep now. Later.


  1. I hope you can break away from the craziness and fill us in!

  2. Oh man, sounds like you need a bloggy hug. Company for that long is indeed stressful. I remember my brother came and stayed with me from Canada for 2 weeks last summer --I was fine, but it drove my hubby crazy. Guess it depends on which side of the family eh. AND HOW COULD THEY NOT POSSIBLY LIKE YOU.

  3. Oh man, you guys don't want me to fill you in. It's BAD. Besides I think a little whining/complaining is good (VERY GOOD), but sometimes "venting" is just another way to flame the fire. And I don't need this fire any bigger.
    I don't know how they couldn't like me Wendy, I'm so gosh darn lovable. :S

  4. Mel sweetie...I luv ya!!!
    I feel your pain, I'm not my in-laws favorite either...

  5. Good luck with that. That doesn't happen around here all that often because our house isn't big enough that my MIL and FIL get their own room, therefore they refuse to stay at our house. I hope you don't go crazy. (that and my MIL thinks I hate her. You should try that. It seems to work for me.) ;)

  6. Argh! You poor, poor darling girl. Notice how I NEVER mention my IL's on my blog? Yeah, it's because they hate me, and even if I write nice stuff they find a way to get offended. The one good thing about living in Utah is that we can go home at the end of the day and not see them for two weeks.


I'm mysteriously judging whether or not you're going to comment or not...you know you want to.
