Tim - why is that, do you know? You don't have to tell me, I'm just being nosy as it seems that I feel much the same way as your wife.my wife on the other hand, still isn't really comfortable around my mother.....
Darn, is that all it takes??? hahhahahIf you tell your inlaws not to blame their disfuntions on you, they will stop talking to you.
Yep, I know But see, look at it as reassurance that 90% of others are in the same boat!! I personally need to recognize that every once in a while.Wow, this message is full of holiday spirit, isn't it?
You don't feel comfortable around his mother, either? That's harsh. I bet you don't even know the woman.SW MI Planner said:Tim - why is that, do you know? You don't have to tell me, I'm just being nosy as it seems that I feel much the same way as your wife.
In a nutshell, my wife thinks that my mom is disappointed with me because Erica "isn't good enough" for me...I could go into more detail Christine....but would rather not do it on the boards...PM me if you want more info.SW MI Planner said:Tim - why is that, do you know?

We've been together over three years,and she lives a mile away. We see her frequently, and I feel that I know her quite well. I'm not trying to be harsh, but being honest. Thing is, when you are regularly being told that you are not doing something correctly (because it's not *her* way) - it doesn't make for a comfortable situation. For example, I make dinner, and it is "all right, but I usually don't put this much meat in my spaghetti sauce". The gardening looks "ok, but needs some more color". The roof color I like "looks horrible, and we should get the same color she has" (even though the houses are not even similar). This is seriously an ongoing thing....You don't feel comfortable around his mother, either? That's harsh. I bet you don't even know the woman.

That's why I was asking Tim about his situation, and how his wife dealt with it.

Awww! How nice of her! Hopefully all is better in NH tooChristine...ironically, my wife just called me, and I mentioned this thread....she said to tell you that you have her sympathies, and that hopefully things will get better with time!!!
Is this the return of the Planner's Dating Service? I seem to remember previous attempts to connect an ex-Floridian and our Lovely Latex Lass, among others.SW MI Planner said:Hey, I thought I was supposed to bring a girlfriend to Denver for ya
I think I've got it. Thanks.SW MI Planner said:Ok, to make a smiley. Where ever you want it, type a colon : ,and a paranthesis ) right next to each other, and it should work. To make him/her wink, use the semi-colon ; then the paranthesis.
There are a bunch other ones - on the bottom left of the screen it will have a forum rules box, and it says something about smilies. Click on that, and it will give you a list of them.
