Dear Anyone,

My husband & I are expecting our second baby in the Fall and I'm going back to work next week after my first mat leave ends.

We have a 3 bedroom home and my in-laws (mom, dad and sis) are moving in this month for at least 4 years. They want to pay off debts before saving for a condo. They're living upstairs as our basement is not finished yet.

The more I think about the situation, the more I become resentful towards them. It's not fair. My husband thinks I'm overreacting when I tell him it's a big adjustment. I'm a private person who likes my space (that's how I re-energize). The way I see it, I'll be living in a one-bedroom apartment for the next few years. What can I do to handle this better? I don't like feeling this way but I can't help it...
