OCD sister in law 530 am house cleaning!!!

So girls. I've had horrible insomnia for months. DH travels for work. Right now he happens to be work 3 minutes from his sisters house, so we are staying there. I love my sister in law, we have a great relationship. She is single and 34. The issue right now is that my infant has been really sick with croup so I'm sleeping even worse. He's up coughing and crying at night. Every morning my sister inlaw gets up at 530 to clean her house and load the dishwasher. She doesn't like how I load it and asked me not to. I do cook and clean while here. We are at her home and as such I must respect it but she is waking us all up early as we are on the ground floor with her obsessive cleaning! Do I say anything (gently) or just shut up? I'm torn because you would think she'd realize how sleep deprived we are and try to be quiet. She doesn't leave for work till 930. I can't understand why she can't just let me do all this when we get up and let us sleep! What would you do?

Do you travel WITH your DH when he travels for work?

Only occasionally DD has school off next week,she's 3, so I thought it would be nice to see family.

 Her house.  If you don't like it, leave.  Maybe she's secretly hoping you will?

 Keep quiet and sleep when she leaves. I HATE when people try and clean my house. I even hate when dh does it.

How much longer will you be there.

That is her routine and what she is use to. How long are you there for?

Learn to sleep through it. Goodness my kids can sleep through a sweeper coming into their room, heck probably a train!
