My parents are driving me NUTS
So earlier this year, my parents (father and step mom) moved to where I live. It was a 6 hour move for them. They now live VERY close to me. I have young sisters.
My husband and I have two children as well. He works 50 or so hours a week. I work 40 and I am also a full time student.
So, as you can see, we are VERY busy people. My family does not seem to understand this.
They will drop by my house any time, ring the door bell, and expect to come in and hang out. They ask me to watch their children pretty regularly. I get so annoyed, because I barely have time for my own family.
I am on maternity leave for a few months, so it has gotten worse since our last child was born. They "know" that I am home everyday, and pop up whenever. My step mom treats me like her only friend, and text me EVERYDAY asking me what I am doing. I am so tired of it. Even though I am on leave, I still have a butt load of homework to do, and taking care of children. Not to mention housework. OH and not to mention a struggling marriage (other post is in coping with infidelity).
I have told them numerous times how busy I am, and they still do not get it.
Not to mention, my sisters are BAD. They do not disciplin them at all, so hanging out with them in general is miserable.
I hate that I feel this way about my family, but they are driving me nuts!
Am I crazy here??? How do I approach this?
I know it sounds easy "just tell them no" but it's difficult when they are asking me every single day.
