45. I moved in with my father
and step mother after losing my job and my home in Hurricane Ivan.

It was rough for me, and one could only imagine rough for them.

I do pay rent each month, but it is minimal ($250 a month).

If I were on the phone line (which THEY pay for) and they asked me to get off, I would say, Okay. If they wanted me to move from an area so they could smoke, I would definitely say okay.

I would NEVER eat the last of a certain food item i.e. bread, cereal, fritos, milk, eggs, cheese, and if I did, I would replace them so fast that no one would ever notice. I buy my own groceries and cook for everybody regularly, but I just like cooking.

My daughter, who can be a little short sighted, and very selfish moved in with me once (before Ivan). She acted the way you do. Would get all huffy if I tried to explain boundaries, and very, very childish and immature and act like I was invading her space in some way when I tried to say "hey, this is my space, you can have the rest"
