Pleasantly shocked
« on: May 26, 2011, 12:34:22 AM »
I'm still kind of reeling, actually. DH & I spent about an hour with DS & DIL this eve. It was very pleasant! DIL chatted, laughed and seemed to enjoy being with us. She even mentioned the possibility of a future outing together. She did bring up her fabulous FOO, but didn't rub it in as before. She didn't criticize us at all. Progress? I hope so...I have to squelch my wariness and not overthink everything, just enjoy the moment.

Oh Pen...it sounds really nice.   I dont know what changed her attitude...but it doesnt matter....she made you happy.  It is a good start.  Good things should happen to good people like you...so there must be some more coming.....I pray to the Lord lol.   

I wish you the best Pen.....enjoy,

Maybe she is realizing what the truly important things in life are?  Pen, you are one of the MIL's here whose DIL's behavior has baffled me...there really doesn't seem to be any reason for her shunning of you and I don't think she knows how lucky she is.  Maybe she is finally seeing that.  I hope you see continued improvement in your relationship with her....I think she will really like you if she gives herself a chance to.

Thanks, everyone! IMO having you guys to talk to takes the pressure off, so when I see DIL & DS I am more relaxed...which makes her more relaxed...IDK, for now I'm grateful, whatever the cause. WW are the best!

That's terrific, Pen,

If dil would allow you the opportunity, she'd see the same Pen we've all come to know & love.  Wishing you all the best...
