Nosy MIL - she makes me hate her - urgent help needed please!!!
My MIL is the worst thing in the world! Ok, let me start:
I live with my in-laws, and i also live within 10 minutes' walk from my parents' home. So every morning 8:30 am, when i take my daughter out for a walk or to the swings and slides, we go to my parents' home for half an hour or sometimes for an hour. But i don't tell my MIL or husband about it, i tell them we're outside because: 1) MIL doesn't need to know what i'm doing with DD and whatever i'm doing in general (she doesn't have any rights towards me!), and she is AWFULLY JEALOUS of my parents, because dd loves them more than MIL and FIL, 2) my husband may think it's too much to visit my parents every single day (but i'm doing this because my parents and sister get HAPPY seeing me and my daughter every day, and making them happy makes ME happy), besides, my husband is at work and very unsuspecting.
So, today i'm at my parents' apartment with dd again, and MIL calls on my cellphone. I go to the balcony (so that outside noise is heard), and she asks me where we are.
MIL: "Where are you?"
Me: "Walking in the neighbourhood. Why? Has something happened?"
MIL: "No, ....(doesn't know what to say)... just... when you come back home, buy some milk, ok?"
ME: "Oh, all right."
MIL: "But exactly where are you taking a walk right now?"
Me: "In the neighbourhood, as always (annoyed tone)".
MIL "OKay" and we hung up.
Later i return enter the small store in front of our building with DD to buy the milk, and the saleslady tells me that my MIL had already bought it (!!!!). So we went home.
MIL: "So where were you walking? I was in ZZZZ(changed name) and didn't see you (ZZZZ is the part of negihbourhood where my parents' apartment is).
Me: "Oh, maybe during the time you were in ZZZZ we weren't in ZZZZ, instead maybe we were in XXXX (another part of the neighbourhood (our neighbourhood is really big).
MIL: "but why didn't you tell me exactly where you were when i called you? I was out shopping and wanted to meet you and see DD"
Me:"If you wanted to meet us, you could say so, and we'd meet. But as far as i remember, you said you wanted me to buy milk, which, by the way, the saleslady told me you had already bought!!"
MIL (doesn't know what to say)"Y-y-y-yes,... i bought the milk"
Me: "So, what's the problem?"
MIL walks away.
I'm sure she's going to spy on me or follow me tomorrow when i take dd to my parents' house. I am planning not to answer my cellphone when she calls tomorrow when i'm there. but i'm not sure i can tolerate this any more. And i can't vent to my husband, because he doesn't know it all, and i don't want him to know, because he'll not let me visit my parents every day during the time which is supposed to be DD's outside time.
I HATE HER. why is she meddling with my life! what does she want from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please anyone out there, help me.....
