My husband and I finally had a face to face meeting with my husbands brother and her wife yesterday. She's been mad at us for the last year ( mainly me) for our every move we make. So we finally discussed the nonsense face to face. So she has had all these issues with us for the past year and blames me for the following that I did wrong. - I should have called her when rsvping to a party instead of emailing her - I should have brought my tired crabby 18 month old to her child's baptism at the church instead of let her nap ( even though we attended the celebration afterwards. She accused me of altering my child's nap schedule for other peoples parties but not hers. - I should have called her to let her know my daughter and I are going to Florida next month and will miss her sons birthday party...even though we hadn't received the invite yet. This is what caused her to hate me for the last year????!!! I think she's in for a lot of disappointment in life if she thinks the world revolves around her and she continues to have these unrealistic expectations of people. Her husband even told us that he wrote off one of his childhood friends that was invited to the baptism and backed out last minute and didn't come. She's having a pretty negative influence from what I can see. Since they've gotten married there has been nonstop drama and losing many friends.

I don't think that she should hold any grudge over you for your decisions. Even if i were on your shoes, I'd feel bad about what she is saying. It is not your obligation to be always doing thing that will please her. She needs to realize that people have better things to do other than think of her all the time.

it sounds like my sister in law in some ways. she drives me nuts so i really don't like spending time with her much either, way too much drama.

your relationship with your in laws sounds like the one that me and my husband has with his brother and his girlfriend. we can't stand the girl and he keeps wanted to bring her and her kid around us. i think the reasons why we don't like each other goes deeper than the reasons she says she is having beef with you. you are right, she has really high expectations of people and it really makes it hard to have any kind of relationship with that kind of person. see, my brother in laws' girl came on the scene like a demon. that's why we don't like her.
