Today we get an e-mail from my MIL, stating that she's about to buy a plane ticket...for an eleven day visit. Now, I like her, and it's nice to have the help with my son, but...11 days? Is it just me, or is this kind of a lot to plan on without even asking us? She visits every few months, and usually it's for about 5 days at a time. She doesn't want to get a hotel, so that means she'll be staying with us. My husband has a really hard time getting that much time off of work, and is upset that she wants to stay that long. He has a bigger problem with it than I do. It's just hard for me to share my home 24/7 for 11 days. Is that wrong of me? I'm a private person, and I just find it difficult...so does my husband, because she's constantly telling him how he needs to do things differently, correcting him, etc. Anyways...how could we nicely tell her that about 7 days would be better, lol?

Well first of all this trip was planned by her not you. It seems like she made a choice and decided to invited herself. Not to mention for that long, it would drive me nuts. Everyone is different. I believe 2 or 3 days max. Your hubby needs to step it up and respect your privacy. Your not neglecting her visit just not in agreement for so long. Ask him to give a talk to his mom before all the trip is planned. That's my suggestion! LOL! Good Luck!
