She has questioned a couple of times about them "moving her things.." and they have tiptoed around it. I'm sure they don't want to face her anger of she finds out that her stuff is being cleared out, too. As far as selling the house, I asked DH the other day why he would even tell her that they are selling it? She isn't going back, so she will never know. Why stir up trouble where there doesn't need to be any?

I think you are all right- I just need to leave him to it and let him sort through his feelings while he sorts through the stuff. It's got to be tough on him, because it really brings home the reality that this is happening. But it's hard for me not to feel resentful because this is one more thing for his mother that is taking time and energy away from his family. If he hadn't spent all the other times doing things for her that could have easily been done by someone else, then I would be much more understanding about this situation. But again, it just one. more. thing.

My concern would be that MIL would blame C, DH and BIL for "ruining" her house or letting it get this way and cause problems for them. Yea, like they let the cats in to pee.
