Unwelcomed Guest

My husband travels quite a bit for his job. The problem is that every time he is gone my mother ends up showing up at my house & staying for hours. There have been times where I go to bed & she still doesn't leave! During this time she's either eating my food, using my computer or watching tv. It's very annoying. Sometimes I just want to have a little bit of time to myself when my husband is away. How do I handle this? I've dropped hints, I've been flat out blunt with her & nothing seems to work. Advice please!

Why does she need to KNOW when your husband is traveling? I'd suggest keeping that information to yourself, unless you feel like you might enjoy a visit from Mom during a particular trip. . .

Just my 2 cents

How about making up an excuse and say that you'll be out? Make a coffee date with your girlfriend at Starbucks nearby. Or go to the library for a while?

You don't have to tell her how long you'll be out.

I doubt she will want to hang out at your house if she's all alone.
