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?

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????
