Spending time with my SIL (my BIL's wife) always causes great anxiety.  Now that we live near them it makes it harder to avoid them.  We live less than a mile away.

This weekend my husbands sister and her family will be traveling here from another state.

I'm not able to 'opt out' of the gathering tmw.  It is for a good friend of mine's sons bd party.  Not going isn't really an option.  Unless, I'm dying.  I would rather be dying than spend time w/my SIL.

Next Friday night my husband got 10 free tickets to a local comedy club.  He invited my BIL/SIL to come.  He told me today "I would rather *brother* not come if it means *sil* won't come.  It is your birthday and the last thing you should have to do is put up w/her dumb ass.  * dh swore. Mark it on the calendar.*

All this to anxiety level has already been on high alert.  I've already been struggling w/keeping myself in a safe space.  And the added stress has me in a whirlwind of panic. 

Thus...why I'm composing...again...a blog post at 2am.  I can't sleep.  One of these days I will stop being the better person and tell *SIL* where to stick her stupid self.
