she can't just stop by whenever she feels like with out calling first? My husband works 12 hour shifts and is going to school full time. We have maybe an hour to eat supper in the evenings and spend time together before he has to do school and shower and go to bed. My mil has been stopping by without calling all the time and she brings a bunch of her family and they all hint around about "how good our supper smells". Just a little background he was never close to his mom. She was not around while he was growing up at all and all she talks about is how she needs money. BUT we still don't want to offend her if we can help it so what is a nice way to tell her to call and see if she can stop by.
Also she tries the door knob every time she comes. If we didn't have the door locked she would just walk right in.

Buy that DO NOT DISTURB sign & put it on your door knob lol jk. Your husband should talk to her & let her know that she needs to call before she stops by because you guys are always a little too busy & can not receive visitors without the heads up. GL! =)

In addition to everything above me. Set a time to go to her house. Part of it might be that she misses her son (most of it looks like she wants a free meal though) and if she knows she will see him on the second Sunday of the month, then she can just remind herself to calm down. But don't worry about being nice. Let your husband handle it.
And if that doesn't work let your husband come out of the shower in a towel one time talking about how he is in a rush to get to the library before class starts. He can escort her to the door and push her out of it. I think she needs a good hard shove to get the hint!
