In her twisted mind, she was “doing a nice thing”, I just want to drink wine love my fireman and take naps shirt. but what she was actually doing was creating a moment where she could waltz in with a big grand gesture and hog all the attention. She’s shown she has no regard for other people’s time, so feel free to go ahead without her in the future. Thank you so much for all the advice, and for taking your time to write me all of those. You’re right, this is something that I really need to discuss with DH or this is going to be an ongoing thing in our lives.
What is a fireman?
We need to set things straight right now to avoid future situations like this one. He needs to understand it’s his job to handle his mother, not mine. We dated for nine years before we got married so this won’t break us, but it wasn’t a good start for sure. Also, sell the fur blanket. Use that money to buy a blanket you like. When she asks about the blanket, DH should say, “Oh, since you forgot that my wife doesn’t like fur and it wasn’t returnable, we knew you wouldn’t mind if we sold it to buy a bedspread we could both enjoy! Thanks again, we’ll be super toasty this winter!”. Another option is to donate it to a zoo or animal sanctuary. Some animals enjoy cuddling in fur. I learned this from an article about what to do with an inherited but unwanted fur coat.

If MIL gets angry about the blanket being gone, they can tell her the animals needed it so much, and they really appreciate it. This is adorable and sweet. Now every time you think about it the horrible memory of your meddling MIL will be cushioned by the heartwarming feeling that you provided a baby animal in need with something that will bring it warmth and comfort. Seriously, just sell the damn thing and use the money on something you want. Also, next time you and D(am)H have something special planned, he shouldn’t answer his phone if she calls or texts. Period. Even if it’s an “emergency”. If it’s an emergency, she can call emergency services. Or deal with it herself. Not your circus, not your monkeys. Sorry OP. So many things screwed up by this woman making YOUR wedding weekend all about herself. Definitely, apply lessons learned to next year’s party.

I second the idea of selling the blanket and buying one both of you like. I just want to drink wine love my fireman and take naps shirt. Plus, I think it’s super icky that she has asked TWICE if you have put the blanket she bought on your bed, your bed being the usual (but not limited to) place for sexy times. Yup. She’s just reminding OP that every time OP sees that fur blanket that she dislikes on their marital bed, to think of MIL—how fucking romantic. And how nice for DH; every time he wants to get sexy time with the wife he married, he’ll look at that tactile, animalistic blanket and be reminded of his other wife.
