okay let me tell you, I am a clean person always have been always will be---I am not a neat nik!! I am very tired of my In-Laws hinting that I could be cleaner, if I need help just ask....
ERG- I am a mom to a 1yr old and a 2yr old, I work 35 hours a week, and I am in Chemisrty this summer, and amazingly I actually have a life..I go to the grocery store. Anyway my MIL told me last week that if I didn't get organized before the fall semester started that I would not suceed.....I am organized!!!What in the world?? AYGH- how in the world do you tell your MIL off?
To me, this can be looked at from at least two perspectives. 1st, she may being trying in a rather difficult way to mentally perpare you for what lies ahead.
2nd, she may be used to speaking her mind about issues and this one had gotten to you, only you know, if this is so, it should have been dealt with then because now she feels she has the "power" to do so.
Sometimes people say things and don't mean any harm...voice of said person.
Now, me being a very out spoken person, would tell her that I am open to any suggestions and criticisms, neg and pos. but telling me how to run our home, is out of the question.
No matter what she says, she does not determine your either failing or succeeding in your life's endeavors.
Sometimes it is better to hear and not hear than react unless......
Keep your eye on the "prize"!
