When my husband heard the term “mother-in-law suite” he just about fell down just standing still. He definitely he likes my mother, however he wouldn’t choose to live with her I feel. Maybe more so he wouldn’t want to live with me and her at the same time. We tend to have fights all of the time! We pretty much always have been that way. My mother is getting to the point, however, that she may need a locale to stay in the near future. When both of us made the decision to go looking for dwellings, I wanted to keep that in mind. My husband certainly was not a fan. Having a true mother-in-law suite, in my opinion, means that there’s a small dwelling on the property. My mother would need her own utilities, and pretty much everything. She totally does things her own way. She is absolutely nuts about her Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appliance. She has the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C guy over to her locale so much that she knows just about everything about him! I explained to her that she didn’t need to get service done all that much! I shouldn’t have said anything about it though. She went into a massive rant about how I don’t take enough care of things that are truly important. I should get my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appliance looked at way more often because I would certainly be sorry when it broke. I truly do not want to have something as bizarre as Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service be a point of stress between us if she were to eventually move in. I could care less if she wishes to spend her money on useless Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appointments. As long as it makes her entirely ecstatic.
