Last night my sister and her husband and I had it out.  I told them flat out that I was tired of my den smelling horrible, tired of not having any groceries, tired of a messy house, tired of having no money to buy dinner to include thanksgiving dinner, tired of running up my credit cards to support her, tired of it all.  I also told her that I was tired of her running her mouth to mom telling mom a bunch of lies.  Her husband has until the end of the week to get a job, I don't care where,  They have until the end of the month to move into the house for rent right around to corner, and they are going to buy their own groceries, pay for the electric they have wasted, the water they used, and half of my satellite bill.  They already have to put gas in my car being he is borrowing it for right this minute but it will be in my driveway every night.  They are however going to build my dogs a doghouse to sleep in.  The dogs are now no longer allowed in the house.  It was cold last night so they asked if they could bring the dogs in the house for the night.  I said it was fine as long as they made sure the dogs didn't potty in the houes and the dogs stayed in the den with them.   The dogs managed to eat my b-i-l's cell phone and his glasses.  He is legally blind in his left eye and they chewed thru the lenses and the frame.   Bad Dogs!!!

I hope it all works out ...

I hope it all works out the way you are hoping but good luck getting anything from them if they have been freeloading already..Stick to your guns and make them pay what is owed to you..Thats the bad thing about letting family move in, sometimes they tend to think that they don't have to share the living expenses as much, since they are family.

ugh. im glad you finally ...

ugh. im glad you finally said something to them. kick their asses if they dont comply.

I was going to sit them ...

I was going to sit them down and have a talk but my sister came at me the wrong way and I went off. I was yelling at her and my bad b/c I upset the kids. The kids are fine though but the freeloaders got the point. They went out and bought their own groceries. The real test is when I get the next electric bill. If it is way higher than last months........let's just say shit will hit the fan.

10 to 1 says it will be ...

10 to 1 says it will be higher than last months......but on the upside, good dogs, VERY good dogs!
I am glad you let her know how you feel, and that she got the point. Some people take others generosity to far, and some are just to blind to notice they are doing that to others. She def. took your generosity to another level, and used you. Some people are just selfish, and are not in tune with what or how others feel. Good for you though. Better for your kids I bet too....and your living room.

The dogs were actually ...

The dogs were actually bad. They have a chewing problem and even I have to wear glasses for everything but driving. I know how expensive glasses are and I hope he can get them fixed. I can't seem to get the dogs to not chew on everything. The female dogs has even eaten part of the siding on my house. The dogs have both eaten half of their water bucket and the only other options are to either get a metal bucket or a concrete water feature tub. The dogs are over a year old and shouldn't be chewing on anything.
As far as my sister she should be starting a job next week. My b-i-l is going to do day labor until his job starts back up in a few weeks. Hopefully everything will work out shortly before the holidays. Esp. since I have my best friend from high school coming down for a couple of days.

All I know is my house had better be spotless by the time I get home tonight. I put my foot down and I don't want to have to go around cleaning up after anyone.

Do you dogs have tennis ...

Do you dogs have tennis balls to play with?? That kept my lab busy so he quit chewing on stuff. You have to give the dogs other "options", I think Walmart sells rawhide bones pretty cheap...then they might think that the house doesn't taste as good....

They have bones, tennis ...

They have bones, tennis balls, chew toys, you name it they have it. None of it works. They eat the bones within hours. The tennis balls have been chewed to threads. I am about ready to pull out all their teeth if they don't quit.

oh and the no chew spray ...

oh and the no chew spray stuff makes them eat whatever I spray it on more. I have half a palm tree left from that adventure.

well good for your peace ...

well good for your peace of mind, I HOPE they leave soon!

sorry, but I had to laugh ...

sorry, but I had to laugh at the palm tree...

Good for you Snowkat. ...

Good for you Snowkat. Stick to your guns. If your freeloading sister and her husband put one toe across the line you have drawn in the sand, give them another blast. Don't let them get away with a thing and make them stick to every promise they made. The dogs are bored. Since your sister and her hubby have so much time on their hands why aren't they taking the dogs for long walks. Let them see some new scenery and tire them out. At minimum they could go out in the back yard and toss a ball for the dogs to chase and get tired out. The other possibility is that the dogs are lacking some vitamin or mineral in their diet. Try a supplement and see if it helps. It worked for my horses that were busy chewing down their barn.

I will try the vitamin ...

I will try the vitamin supplements. As far as taking the dogs for a walk, first I have to finish leash training them. They think they can chew on the leash and they walk the owner. Not happening here. They also can't handle the dogs. I have hyper dogs that like to eat anything to include the unmentionable. Yuck! But the bright side of that is I don't have to clean the kennel very often.

EEEW, EEEW, EEEWWWWWW!!! ...

EEEW, EEEW, EEEWWWWWW!!! I did NOT need to hear that! LOL!

I'll bet conana and the ...

I'll bet conana and the dogs would be great pals!!! Sorry I had to!

hahahahahahahahahahahaha! ...

hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Dawn if you can hear my thoughts then you need to try to makemoney off of it.

LOL!

LOL!

The dogs need more ...

The dogs need more attention. That is why they chew everything. Training is essential. It takes training of the human first and foremost. It takes time too. If you take the time to do that, you will suffer the consequences. It's that simple. I don't say this to be unkind, it's just the fact of the matter and many think that more toys will solve the problem. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes a companion dog helps. Neither appear to have helped in your case and so more attention and proper training are required. There are many resources online for learning how to properly train dogs. Again, it takes time. If you don't take the time, and don't like the consequences, than perhaps there is a better home for them that you can find. It would be better for you and the dogs.
