That would be me.
The day before yesterday, my mother-in-law handed my husband a letter along with an extensive list of things that she believes I have stolen from her. The list included various handbags and pieces of clothing, a diamond necklace, an umbrella, and her late husband’s pajamas. I may have a few pieces of her Tupperware in my kitchen that I forgot to give back, but after seeing the movie “Blood Diamond,” I’d be more inclined to go for cubic zirconica. And what in the world would I do with my father-in-law’s pajamas?!
I’m inclined to believe that she is suffering from dementia, but her daughter, my sister-in-law says that “it’s her character.” When I agreed to move in with her three years ago (imagine a gun to my head), I thought she would probably harp about my housekeeping skills, or lack thereof, and the way I raise my children. I really had no idea it would come to this.
