Once again this year my parents are making the 9+hr drive for Christmas and all of the sudden my MIL (only 2hrs away) was hoping to come b/c she just "never gets to see us." We have 1 guest room and a not-so-big house. MIL is offended when I say the large not-so-housebroken dog needs to stay with someone else.
Could you ask MIL to stay at a nearby bed and breakfast? Just wondering, because rather than descend upon a certain relative during the holidays, we decided we would take turns staying at a B&B. Sort of helps ease the tension.
