Nikki,

Yeah, the other poster is right. Only you can set this boundary.

You need to tell you Mom, "No, you can't come over."

It's up to your mother to take care of herself. And, frankly, if she can't stand your EXSIL (EX?) then she shouldn't be living with her.

As long as you let her crash at your place, she will. Keep saying no.
