I’ll pray for you….say one for ME, too?
We’ve found ourselves in a similar situation. We had a relative with a need to recover from a serious hospital stay who has been living with us. Well…guess what? He has fully recovered and has YET to move a number of months later! How do you gently tell someone to get the heck out of your house already!? His family life at home is not so hot, and we know he enjoys being with a nice, normal family that doesn’t fight and scream all day. Also, he says “Your kids are so well behaved – you’d never know there were five of them!” (Another reason he likes staying here!) I’m thinking of asking the kids to start acting up!
DH is an absolute saint in putting up with this (it’s MY family)….but we both agree that enough is enough already. We have a newborn now and not much patience for a lot extra.
Just wanted to let you know that I feel for ya sister!!!
