My husband and I have been together for 8 years and this will be our first child. I cannot stand my MIL because she is pushy and overbearing. She still thinks that her 36 year old son needs her to control his life. Anyway, she and I never got along-- she has always told me that I wasn't s$%T, so I decided a long time ago that I want nothing to do with her. I also let hubby know that I don't take that crap off of anyone, and I would not be attending any functions at her house and she would not be welcome in mine. So last night hubby and I were talking about taking a trip before the year is out. I am thinking about October when the baby will be about 5 months. I am nervous to leave my baby with anyone but my sister. Hubby asks me why I won't leave baby with his mother and I told him that I don't feel comfortable leaving him with her. It's not that I don't plan on bringing the baby to see her, but I am not leaving him with her for a week. She works crazy hours and I would not want her dropping my child off at one of her friends' houses which she has been known to do with her other grandkids. I don't think that I should feel bad about this, but hubby seemed offended. I let him know that in 8 years I haven't visited or spoken to her, so things aren't going to be all that different. We will visit her with the baby after a while, but she and I aren't on a level where I trust leaving him with her for a week. Should I feel bad?

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
