Ok, (r u there, TotH, cuz I'm gonna rant again, ha-ha)
So my H's great aunt (MIL's aunt) died after a long illness, she was 85, seemed to be a nice lady but I only knew her from the KH. My H knows how I feel about going to the KH for any reason and is not forcing me to go. My BIL is however making his wife go even though he doesn't agree with the religion, he pretends to in order to appease his nagging mother. I really don't want to be around all of the "OHHH, we miss you soooo much, when are you coming back" BS but I will probably go so as not to leave poor SIL by herself with the witlesses. Also, I figure if I don't go, it will give all the nags a chance to talk about me "Poor, D, his wife didn't come with him...." So, me and H had a bit of a tiff about JW's last night because he asked me if I would leave him if he went back to the KH. I didn't feel it was a fair question, seeing how I pretty much let him do as he pleases, play poker all night with his pals, go on weekend fishing trips, golf whenever he wants, etc,etc without nagging. And he likes his lifestyle. Period. I don't see him ever going back because he would have to give up all his fun, that I put up with and no one else in his past relationships would. I suspect this has all come about recently because MIL is pestering him ever since the memorial... probably telling him the usual, time is short, yadda yadda yadda, laying the urgency BS on him and all the guilt. ANYHOW, any tips for the funeral would be appreciated, if anything it will be good practice for MIL's funeral as I'm sure she will be having "A BIG FAT JW FUNERAL", ha-ha.
