      Understandable.
      Mom's aren't supposed to act that way.

      Could there be an underlying medical issue? A friends mom started spending excessively,, giving away money, acting strange and we found out she had a new onset neurological condition. Things got really bad before she was diagnosed...she went thru all her money, was bouncing checks, bills went unpaid.

        My MIL passed away a couple of years ago. She had things rough in her life and was a saint. Really a great person. Now my wife could give you the good MIL stories. My mom is a pain in the ass

          Probably...It could even be depression. Given all her other issues, it wouldn't suprise me.

                My ex MIL is single if anyone is looking for a companion. Maybe some "loving" will end the bad mood she's been in for at least the last 25 years.

                  My MIL died a few years ago. She was a saint and I loved her dearly. She always told me I was her favorite son-in-law. I sure miss her peas and butter beans, too.

                    My mother is VERY self centered. The type that will ask you how you are, won't let you get a sentence out before she's telling you minor woes in her life. Mrs Bill knows how to handle her though. Heck, I remember during Katrina everything being torn up down here, having to wait in gas lines for 2 1/2 hours, I was telling her about it and she cuts me off complaining that she had to wait in line through 5 vehicles to get gas up in north Alabama. I went off on her and when I was finished about all the distressed and misplaced people down here she was wanting to know if she could bring some 5 gallon cans of gas, whatever food, and meet in Montgomery.

                      My mother is one that likes to help, but she puts everything in the wrong places, buys 10 bottles of salad dressing (not joking) because they are on sale. "They can sit on your shelf just as well as the store." She also buys so much junk food for my kids, pisses my wife off.

                      If anyone is wondering, we pay her to watch the two youngest, she needs the money.

                        My mom is as sweet as she can be, but shes getting older and her mind has started slipping. Doing anything with her like traveling or shopping has gotten pretty difficult.

                              My MIL just got a boob job and her neck tucked. She is a career waitress and is basically the farthest thing from common sense that I could find in the world.
