Company is gone

Well, the in-laws went back home this past Saturday. It feels so good to have my home back! I hate to say it, but it was such a long week with company here. My brother in law was his usual a**hole self. He had Tyler so scared of him the very first night they were here!! I was furious with him. He stayed here a few days then went to Pigeon Forge for 2 days. It was sad, because I told Tyler we were going to go pick up uncle dave and he asked "do we have to, mommy? He scares me." :( It got out of hand one night and I actually had to tell my BIL that if he continued to act the way he does he could pack up his stuff and go home and not come back. And of course, all I hear is "Well, that's just how David is...." Ummm, not in my home he isn't!! I don't care if that's how he acts all the time, there is NO excuse for it at all. I guess it makes him feel more like a man knowing he scared a 4 year old. And of course, my sister in law had to call like I knew she would. That or my mother in law would call her. Hell, they talked for close to 2.5 hours one day!!! Tyler got tired of granny ignoring him so he went in the house and played in the playroom. And the last night they were here, instead of spending special time with Tyler she just had to call my SIL "for a few minutes". A few times my MIL was on the phone Ty was asking me "mommy why is granny not talking to me?" or he'd ask "why is granny not paying attention to me?" How do I explain to a 4 year old something like that? And more than once he walked away from my MIL because she was too busy on the phone to acknowledge him. *sigh* It was a very draining trip, that's for sure.....

Anyhoo, I should be back to posting more regularly now that I can get to the 'puter........:)

Ugh! Shame on him--that's how he is? Um, maybe a 4 year old bully in a grown-up body?? Ick. They suck, Granny is not nice and SIL is a brat. There, I said it. I mean visits are always draining, but if they stink and are draining as well--UGH. I hope David doesn't expect to ever be coming back. Grrr.

I am right there with you on the SIL thing....she is a complete drama queen. And David will not be welcome back for a very long time, if ever. >:(
