@Justbrynne:  Maybe she feels like she doesnt have “her space” anymore? I would towel dry everything next time and put everything away just so keep things civil. Don’t think too much of it. It’s really none of her business what house you get unless she is being supportive and or giving advice to better help you make the right decision. Cheer up! It’s Christmas!!!!!!! 

Just think you are almost out!

@Justbrynne:  Not much, but just remember to take a minute and a deep breath and tell yourself how wonderful having your own house will be after this. It’s hard living with anyone, much less your future in-laws, so you just have to grin and bare it and nod and smile and remember that this is your SO’s family and you love him. Hope its better for the rest of the holidays!

I hope 2014 is the beginning for a new life for you and DH in your new home.  Sending prayers your way.  I know how frustrating it can be to live w/my SO with my own mother.  I don’t think I could handle my ILs.

Ya sounds like Holiday Stress to me… (or she’s PMSing / Hot Flashing)

Altho based on this statement…

As for the ‘her space’ I suppose that could be part of it, but she has had one or two of her kids at home pretty much the entire time SO and I have been together, so it isn’t like this is a super sudden change. 

I got to say that as a grown woman with adult kids… this would wear thin pretty quick for me.  I couldn’t imagine having my 20 & 30 somethings moving back in… and around all the time.  That would drive me nuts.

(sorry… it is true)

You should find a way to be more understanding… and thankful that she has taken you guys in.

It may be pretty common these days… but not EVERY Parent would do it.
