I'm completely selfish because of this, but I think it's okay.
We recently moved about 5 hrs away from my MIL, we used to live about 5 mins from her. We had an opportunity to make better money and place our kids in a better community. It was kind of a blessing because MIL is a strain on my marriage. She is not good with money- ex. instead of paying her utilities, she would buy random things from the store. So she would ask us for money, but we wouldn't just give her cash but we would offer to pay her bill for the month. She would get angry at us and say "Well, I thought you just had money lying around that you can give to me". She also wasn't a very good mother and she admittedly overwhelmingly favors my SIL over my DH.
My SIL is a loser, in and out of jail and a huge drug addict. SIL has a little boy and when he was a baby my MIL asked if we would adopt him. I would have done this in a second, but they both (MIL and SIL) wanted us to foot the bill and be the stability while she (SIL) came in and out of his life as she pleases. I said 'NO' and I would raise him as mine and he would see her as much as our other kids do. SIL is not allowed in my house because she is a thief and a liar and an awful person.
Okay so here it is, my MIL has power of attorney over the little boy. SIL had ditched him with her and is living with who knows. Now my MIL tells us that she wants to move where we are. She doesn't have a job in mind or a way of getting up here and hasn't even thought of where to live. This makes me think that she is trying to weasel her way into living with us. We tried that before but SIL was constantly at our house and she even threatened me. I just feel like everything is great here. We are thriving and I love my little slice. I just don't want the drama that comes with MIL. I just don't know what to do.
