A little back story- my IL's live with me, my DH and our 2 small children . They've been living with us for nearly 7 months. They moved in with us from 2 states away, under the guise of the area they lived in being too stressful, to improve their health and to be near their grandchildren.
As of right now, I'm feeling really resentful of them moving here. They moved here without a job or a place to live, with very little money that they are spending at an incredible rate, and they aren't doing anything to better their health. We don't require them to help with anything (around the house or financially). They did buy some land and are trying to prep it to move on it.
My DH thinks that I need to be communicating with them more and trying to make the situation easier by giving them more of a role in the household. I'm constantly dealing with cleaning up after their dog and MIL's temper tantrums.

If they have money they should contribute especially since there stay is a long period of time. They can't just come in to the house and make life harder for you. You should lay the law down on them and give them a deadline. It's not up to them what they want. It's your house and they either live by your rules or ship out so that they can do what they want. They're full of excuses which is the classic sign of a person who doesn't want to be responsble.
