My husband bought a house literally 5 minutes away from my mothers house. She became very ill when I was about 16 (now 23) and I vowed to stay somewhat close to her no matter what so that I could help her out if needed. Oddly enough my 27 year old sister still lives at home with my mother, and both have taken full advantage of us living so close. We have a 3 year old son and are expecting our 2nd child in July. My mother and sister pop up at my house, unannounced randomly and being pregnant, I'm not as thrilled for surprise company. They do not come in the house, they sit in the drive way and lay on the horn and then expect me to come outside, because they don't want to come in. And of course with it being January it is very cold outside. But in the same situation myself and my family can't go to her house unannounced because their all females and I have a husband and a son. Why is it they don't think I deserve the same privacy. How can I get them to understand?Answer Question

A sit down conversation should solve this. I find sitting outside and honking the horn to be extremely freaking rude.
