We moved into my FIL's old house a few months ago to be closer to him. He lives in a nursing home now. THere is a lot of work to be done to the place. All we have been doing for weeks is cleaning, painting, sorting, and dealing with FIL who keeps deteriorating every day. My dh works out of state. I only see him on the weekends. We've had people over here every weekend. It's been chaos. I'm not saying I don't want to work on the house. But we live here, and my family needs a break! Now another family member wants to come over this weekend to do more work on the house. Personally, dh wants to do this type of work on his own at his descretion seeing as we will be buying the home, and be responsible for it's maintenence. We feel like we are being told how to live. And feel like certain family members are rushing us to do things to the house that aren't neccessary right this moment. I love my family dearly, but we are getting overwhelmed. I told them this and they said too bad. I feel like I live in a house where family thinks they can just show up and do whatever because it isn't in our name. I want a break. I'm overwhelmed, and need one weekend to myself. Is this wrong?
