ok so recently moved here to colorado because we were facing eviction and having family problems (guns were involved, crazy step mothers, all of the abo ve) so we did what we had to and jumped states... so now here we are living with my mother in law and his step father.(WHO JUDGES EVERYONE SINCE APPERANTLY THEY ARE PERFECT) anyways its been since february and still no luck on finding another place...i feel/know we have overstayed our welcome things are getting worse.. i use all my foodstamps to keep food on the table/ in our mouths and to think they started hiding it! i mean seriously is that necessary.... not only that i help make dinner every night (yes im learning alot) and am very thankful. ok also i go help her at work (cleaning houses) she wakes me up all grouchy and i just keep a smile on my face best part is i dont see one dime of the money that she makes while cleaning these houses yes i understand we are living here bill free (but the plan was to come here so we can save money to get on our feet) they took my honeys income tax and are still saying they havent got it. and we have chores so i cleaned the bathroom on sunday and she barley looked at it today and she told danny i didnt do it right ?!?!? :0 wtf i mean 2 days later and she excpects it to be clean with over 9 people in the house give me a break. i dont know what to do anymore..any advice or suggestions?? thanks for your time.

Thats hard we had 7 people here it is stressful and not productive.  Only you can decide if it was a good move but I would get out of there before you become overwhelmed.

 does your so have a job yet? if you could be helping her and him making an income it would be alot better i think. shame on her for hiding food . that is ridiculous. its good you help out with food stamps. and its good you help her clean for the roof she is providing over your head. but i am sorry she can be so hateful. i know how hard it is to live with that many people in the house. there is 11 in mine. i would get out as soon as i could.

Can you look into Section 8 housing? Have you gone to Social Services and talked to a Social Worker to find out what other services are there for you. Some people you can never please. Hope your situation improves. Take care.
