You get along great with her and she seems to never interfere except to agree with you, all is great
You move to Mexico, and live with them for 2 weeks and….
The real Mother-in-law comes out, she starts to try to keep your husband living right beside her if not in the same house as her, and she gets involved in everything, even private conversations between you and him.
This is my mother-in-law and 2 of my sister-in-laws, one is married with 2 kids and the other is 17!!!!!
I love her but, she has to understand that her baby is now a grown married man and he has lived the past 5 years without her assistance.
I will not fix his plate of food before my kids have been served, I will not only fix foods that he likes and ignore what my kids and I like, I will not tolerate someone judging American food I cook just because they have never seen it or tasted it. I refuse to scrub his socks and underwear by hand as she wants me to; I have always washed them in a washing machine and will continue to do so! I will not allow his Mom to make decisions for our family, she and her husband made the decisions for their family now we will make them for ours. Last but, not least, I will not be his servant and spoil him like she did!!
By God, if I have to convince him to move to the other side of Mexico to avoid all of the interfering, I will!
Ok, now I feel better, I needed to vent!!!!
Ok, on to better things,
We are renting a house, MIL did win on this, it is next door but, atleast we will be in our own space and it will be only temporary until I find a job. The house is small, one large bedroom (we will divide into 2), livingroom/diningroom combination, kitchen and Bathroom. The rent is only $1100 pesos a month!
I wonder why houses here do not have cabinets built in and you have to buy them if you want kitchen cabinets.
I have sent my resume to 3 English schools and I am looking for more schools or any other place that pays atleast around the US’s minimum wage.
I need advice on enrolling my kids in school here, I enrolled them in home school in the US before we came but, they want to go to school here with the other kids and they will learn to speak Spanish better.
I am scared to enroll them because we live in Guadalupe and all of the Cartels have been fighting a lot near us.
Last week we had one of the Bloqueos at the entrance to the Colonia. What does everybody think? Should I enroll them or not?
