There is Real Time and then there is MIL Time

Dear MIL,

When you RSVP to a party held in my home at a time convenient for my husband's work schedule, do not complain about eating too early. You knew what time dinner was going to be served, you knew he had to leave for work by 5. So don't make a big deal about how you JUST ATE lunch and now you'll have to go home and make yourself something later because you are too full to eat again, but in four hours you'll be starving so I should just box up all my leftovers and send them home with you so you don't have to cook. Because I just live to serve.

yes, because it would be too much to ask to not eat beforehand or to eat a light lunch. too much at all. that's just crazy. just comfort yourself with the thought of her being hungry later, and DON'T offer any leftovers.

Not like she knew ahead of time when you'd be eating, right?

Nothing like a little planning. But it IS all YOUR fault, you know. You're the DIL...

aren't MILs fun! LOL.

Mine is usally a half hour to an hour late to anything we host. I start eating without her anymore. And I don't offer to nuke it if it's cold. She's got 2 legs and 2 arms and knows where the microwave is!

Looking forward to dining with her again this week. I plan to be done eating and in my comfy clothes on the couch before she even arrives.

Oh and SOMETIMES she brings company. (she's a widow and travels with a pack of female friends!) That's extra fun when they complain about gas prices and ailments while we eat.
