This Easter my husband and I were at Easter dinner at his familys house. We were sitting there talkin and my sister inlaw starts tellin me about a conversation she and one of her coworkers was having at work(on Easter day).She proceeded to tell me that she was so upset because "She was the only mother (other than her own) that wasnt there with her son because she had to work. She also went on to say that it would be ok if I worked that day because I wasnt a mother. I was so upset with her I wanted to knock her off her chair. That was the last thing that I needed was to be reminded over and over that I am not a mother. She makes coments like that all the time. One time for her sons Bday I was helping the kids pinning the tail on the donkey and she told me that it was her place to be helping them because that was her kid I didnt have any remember? How can people be so hateful. My mother inlaw is also very insensitive about it to . She and my husband had an agruement one day and right infront of both of us She screamed out at him "That is why u dont have any kids God knows not to give them to you and I hope that you never get them" . I honestly do believe this is how she truely feels. I think she is afraid that if we would have a baby her precious grandson that she has now wouldnt get as much attention as he normally does. I have told them how they hurt my feelings by some of the stuff they say and how it feels that they throw everything in my face and they dont care they just keep doing it. My husband is at his wits end with his family because he knows how bad it hurts me. It has to hurt him just as bad. How do I handle this?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
