I desperately need time away from my mother-in-law.
My hubby and I were newlyweds when my mil moved in with us. It has been a few years now, and we haven't had a single day away from her. I am so burned out, and we have no one in our town who can give us some much needed respite care. Now my brother-in-law is planning a week long visit in March, and I have begged him to take care of her in his hotel room, he agreed, and he'll get a two bedded room. It works well for all parties, we get a chance to have a break, and they can have more time together to visit, but my mil refused! I am at my wits end, I can't stop crying because of it, I feel so lost and depressed because I can't get away from the woman. Just a few days is all I ask, how can I convince her to stay with her son, whom she calls her favorite.
