  • I do, my sister and I bought a two level home and we share a kitchen. Our parents live with us and we hate it. They dont' respect us and they are just ignorant. They also don't pay rent because my mother can't work and my father lost his job. They act like we live with them its horrible.

  • We live with my in-laws.... I cannot wait to get our own place... hopefully in a couple months! :) It will be really great then because my husband and I are naturally loud people, like in talking and everything, and my in laws do not like loud noises. Plus we just had our son and he's starting to get louder with his cries and starting to annoy them

  • My parents remodeled their basement into an apartment, with it's own entrance, kitchen, bath, and laundry facilities. My dd and I had to live there for a couple of years when she was 3 years old and it worked out well for me at the time. However, the first thing my mother told me when we moved in there was that she was NOT my babysitter. And she was right! I think now she wishes that she would've spent more time with my dd when she was little, though. She babysits my niece and nephew ALL THE TIME. (grumble!)

  • We live with my mom and my stepdad right now, while I'm pregnant. THANK GAWD we have a place to go after my daughter is born. We're going to stay here until she's about four months old, so I can get a job and get into a comfortable schedule with her. My boyfriend is going just as crazy as me...we can't wait to move out oi.

  • I used to live with my mil, and I HATED it! We had privacy, but only in a little 12x12 bedroom. If we opened a can of pop, she would wake up. What bothered me the most was that they thought I was kind of lazy, but she gave me nothing to do. Everyday when I woke up-at 2:30, because I worked nights, the laundry, dishes, vacuuming, EVERYTHING was done. And I got back from work at four in the morning, and I wasn't going to do laundry and stuff for her then. I mean, if a can of pop made her bitch, then what did she think a washing machine would do? She's a crazy MIL, anyway.
