what would you do?

new to this blogging thing. hope i will like it. question for you do you cope with living at home with your parents when you are over the age of 25? granted, i enjoy the fact that  they are helping and that i do not have to pay rent anymore, but i feel as though my privacy is gone. i have been out of the house for 8 years with college (transfers and life happened), i got used to being by myself and doing "my own thing" now i feel sheltered and in a dictatorship! what to do? how would you all cope?

~more to come later...


  1. such a pretty pic up top! That is a really tough question. I would say that you need to somehow make clear that while you appreciate their help so much, you are an adult and can think for yourself and make your own decisions. Thank them even for raising you to be able to do those things, and then tell them you're going to do them. Kind, but firm. :)

  2. I haven't loved with my Mom since I was 18 (I am now 62)-however--she still tells me what to do, what to wear, how to act etc--IT NEVER STOPS--just take it with a grain of salt and try to explain that you really are old enough NOT to have a curfew!!
