MIL decided she wanted to just stay out at her camper by the pond instead since I was the only one home to do anything anyway! I did have to turn the water hose on for her but that's no big deal lol. Sure there's a lot needing to be done outside but it's not like we could have done it by ourselves anyway. I've done a little bit just because I felt like it but it was so nice to not have the pressure of having to do it. Are you the kind of person that will willingly do jobs on your terms but dread those same jobs if someone is telling you that you have to do it? I know that's how I am!

Hey foxy, I'm glad your workday got cancelled. I know how much you dreaded the working with the mil. It is really too bad that you feel so forced into doing that stuff just because you're staying there. By the way, what's happening with the other place? I hope you will be out of there soon so that you don't have to put up with those people anymore. No, I hate being made to do something. It only makes it worse when someone forces me do it. I just get angry and then it shows and it is not a pretty site. I have trouble hiding how I feel sometimes, especially when I'm that sort of situation. I give you a lot of credit though. I don't think I could have put up with what you are putting up with for so long. Try to enjoy the rest of the day!

I'm a lot like you in that feeling! It's just so aggrivating when someone else just plans your day around what they want without even asking you if it's alright! Ugh, I'm still glad she changed her mind even if the outside does need a lot. We have chipped away at but it still needs a lot. It will be a lot easier once they are gone though because then we can just get rid of it all instead of having to stop every 5 minutes and ask "is this something you want? (or should we just leave in the yard for the next 20 years in case you change your mind ?)"

I thought I was the only one who got rebellious anytime I had to do anything.I always questioned why I was so contrary in my outlook.I guess for me it is just human nature.

Lucky you. I am glad it got canceled. As for being forced into doing something that i don't want to do. More than likely i won't because i can be darned stubborn when being pushed.
