But speaking of MILs, mine lived with us 3 days a week when we had our house. Just thinking about it makes me mad because she thinks it is just fine and dandy yet never really asked us if it was okay. She'll start doing that again as soon as we move into our next house. I told my husband it would be okay for her to do it for 3 months while she decided if commuting from Milwaukee to Chicago would work long term. She's been doing it for 6 months and plans on doing it until she retires, I guess. It really ticks me off and I find it amazing that she doesn't see how it is an imposition. She contributes nothing (no money, no food, doesn't clean) yet eats dinner at our house 3 nights a week and before we moved she had completely taken over one of our bedrooms. So rude. At least here at my parents house my parents basically leave us alone. We pay them. What stinks about this living situation most is that it is a nearly 2 hour commute to work... that's the most stressful aspect. I cannot wait to move (and for my MIL to retire). When we move our commute will be back to a reasonable 35 minutes. I may even just plain demand that MIL continue to use AirBnB.com to find accommodations because I hate her staying with us.
