So, MIL is planning this retirement weekend. She wanted to rent a house for all of us (me, DH, SIL, BIL her and her BF) to stay in in upstate NY. None of us really wanted to do anything that she had planned for the weekend, but we were going along w/ it because it's her weekend.

Well, then last night came the deal breaker. The house she rented has NO BATHROOM. We'd have to use a communal bathroom that's 1/4 mile away. There are cots to sleep on, and you need to bring your own sheets/sleeping bag. Plus, the cabin looks like it is about the fall over.

Call me what you will, but I am not a nature girl. I don't need a 5 star hotel, but I require indoor plumbing.

DH said that he understands if I don't want to go, but MIL is mistress of guilt. And she's coming to visit in 2 weeks. How do I get out of this? Or convince her that DH and I can stay in a hotel.

Ack! I wouldn't want to do that either. I'd just be honest and upfront about prefering to stay in a hotel. Guilt trips don't faze me, though, when it comes to certain IL's.

So she wants to basically go camping? Or is she just really cheap? It all sounds silly. I dunno, if you have an ok or good relationship with her, I would go along with it. If you are already at each others throats then get out anyway possible.

I would also just be up front about it. Tell her that you don't want to sleep on a cot and walk that far to use the restroom. Let her know that you and DH want to be there for her weekend, so you'll join in the fun but will be staying in a hotel, it's only to sleep at after all.

Spoke about it w/ DH... He doesn't want to stay there either since there's no electricity and he won't be able to sleep if it's hot. We're staying at a hotel instead.
