They want us to help them when we have kids to provide for
Me and DH usually do ok financially but the past few months have hit us hard. The car needed a $2000 repair, we just had a baby and course Christmas and one of our kids birthday is coming (we now have 3). I am a SAHM and that works for us. Yesterday, DH dad called saying that they had 2 weeks to get out of their home. They haven't paid the mortgage in almost 2 years due to DH's father being in and out of work and it has finally caught up to them. Currently, he is working but found out he will be getting laid off soon. They don't have near enough money to pay the bank to get to stay in their home, they don't even have enough for first and last month's rent for and apartment. He asked if they could move in with us and we talked about it and we really don't have the money to support them without it seriously affecting our kids. We know that if they move in with us FIL will not get a new job and we will never get them out of our house. Now, MIL is complaining to other family members that if we can't afford to pay our bills I should start working. The thing is, we can pay OUR bills, we just can't afford to take care of them too. I think it is strange that she is even saying that since she is about to be homeless and hasn't worked in years. I am glad that I heard that she is being nasty about this though, before I was starting to feel bad, now I don't.
