I'm being dramatic, what's new?
gMIL passed away in late September, she left some $$ to family, some of which is a monthly "allowance" to MIL. So basically MIL went from making x to 4x with this money. Over the last year MIL has also taken up online dating, which is fine, I totally promote her broadening her circle and opening herself up to new social experiences. But with parameters and safeguards in place. Fast forward to Halloween. MIL says she's not going to be in town, but this is only after H asked what she is up to...and then she plays all coy about it and patronizes the crap out of him, and basically makes it out like she's hiding something. When all H wants to do is make sure she's being smart and safe and people know where she is in case of emergency, etc. You know...adult things. MIL in no uncertain terms told him that she told her FRIENDS where she'd be, so that's all that mattered.
Fast forward to Christmas Day, and she hands H this travel itinerary on the sly, with a "I know you were upset last time, so here you go" and mentions traveling to Montana. He barely glances at it because we're celebrating with family, and doesn't want to cause a scene, so he tucks it away. Sunday arrives, and SIL calls H asking where MIL is and that her phone is not answering...and he says "oh yeah, about that---she's out of town. And let me grab this itinerary and share with you."
He then proceeds to read that MIL flew to CO, but stayed not in DENVER but in another town north of that with a "guest" in a hotel, a "guest" that has an address of Wyoming, but MIL never mentioned wyoming---only Montana. Of course SIL is just having some sort of "wtf-fest" and H starts googling distances. She's meeting a man out of state, that no one else knows, in a state, traveling to another state over 7 hours by car...and then flying home. But we shouldn't be worried...right?
And H thinks having a talk with her will help. *scoff* OKAYYY...sure.
