Temporarily living with I laws, best wy to get thru it?
Answered 2 years ago
We are building a new house but will have maybe 2 months where we will have to move in with the in laws. Now I love my MIL but living with her and FIL with our kids is a whole lot different to weekly visits and twice a week chats on the phone. I'm already stressing! She is the epitomy of a 1950s housewife and I'm well as far from that as you can be haha. She's a meat and 3 vege every night for tea and we like to do things like tacos or rice dishes. I will not be able. To relax the entire time we're there. How can I approach this situation so I'm not an absolute anxiety filled mess After 24 hours? Do I suggest I cook certain nights of the week? We won't be able to have our usual lifestyle and routine. Anyone else had to do the same and survived OK? Any advice?
Have an answer?
I don't know if your MIL is this awful, but venturing into their territory can be weird. But 2 months. That's all! I barely survived and nearly divorced my husband it got so bad. But I think you'll be okay. Wish you all the best!
For now, suck it up, princess. Let her cook all dinners, help as much as you can with housework and remember it is only temporary. ;-)
