Here is the OP's dilemma:
[ ADVERTISEMENT ]
The OP explained her MIL started renovating the kitchen and might not finish it until Christmas:
Finally, the OP's husband informed her that MIl would need to use their kitchen to prepare food for 16 people:
But, the OP explained she is not happy about it:
She would like to refuse MIL's request but feels obligated due to her in-law's financial help earlier:
So, she asks for advice regarding her dilemma:
One Redditor said the OP should have told her earlier
The OP explained they didn't know for sure if MIL was going to need their kitchen
A Redditor said they believe the OP doesn't want advice
One Redditor suggested the OP's husband could help
But the OP said she doesn't want to ruin his holiday either
"Don't make this your issue"
The OP explained it's already her issue
Redditors told the OP that it would be rude to tell MIL at the last minute that she can't use their kitchen. They believe the couple should have told her earlier that they don't like the idea of cooking in their home.
They also told the OP she could go out while her MIL prepared all the food.
