my MIL moved in with us in march. i havent SEEN the woman in 4years before that, and i ask her to contribute $80 a month towards utilities. she has a downstairs bedroom right now. When she came, she told us it was so that she could help us out with the kids. And she brought her ancient doggy with her. ok, so he's like 8, but he's sick.
the dog has some sort of skin irritiation disorder, that the vet in tennessee.... 2 yrs ago... said WASNT mange. Well, IDK what it is, but the dog is constantly scratching himself or biting himself raw, has tons of missing hair patches and is pretty nasty looking in general. oh, and then he lays his pus dripping bloody raw self all over my carpet and couches.
oh, and helping with the kids? she leaves at 8 am and comes back at 11 pm, she's never home so she figures she doesnt have to help around the house. once every other week or so DH gets her to babysit while he goes to do something, usually fire department drills, and she usually cleans up that night. she doesnt even wipe up the bathroom floor after her shower.
because she's gone, i feed her dog twice a day and let him out.
and i want the downstairs room within a month or so... going down the stairs to pee is getting old, and i've fallen down them once already.
suggestions on how to ask her to leave now? she works... 4 hr shifts... a few days a week... makes a little more than minimum wage... but claims she doesnt have enough money to pay up front to get car insurance. she asked if she could get on my policy. if she asks again the answer will be. "i already take care of both of your sons since you stopped being able to do that 10 years ago, i'm sorry, but if you have bad credit thats a personal problem and i cannot risk my credit and insurance premiums on you right now. you are going to have to get your own insurance"
when she came she told us it was just for a couple months. yeah... so far its been 5 months..... if i get much more pregnant, i'm just going to walk up to her and say "you're a grown up, you have 2 weeks to find a place for yourself and your disgusting dog and get the hell out of my house. i liked you better when you were 4 states away. the fact that you waited until we bought a house and then convinced us to let you live here so that you could freeload off us instead of someone else makes me sick. you made a mistake thinking i was going to let this continue."... and thats if i feel polite.
think she'd run away if i told her i want the downstairs bedroom? she hates my staircase and won't go upstairs unless she HAS to. like, won't go get Ellie pj's or anything.
