A little background first. My dh and I are separated and he has the kids for now because of some personal issues unti around the 22nd of January. I am allowed to see the kids as much as I want and my dh and I are very friendly.
Now my problem and question.
I currently live with my sister in a town that is about 30 mins away from the town where my kids live. I also work in the same town where my kids live. My dh has been paying all my gas since we separated in June becase I didn't have a job until a week ago. He has stated that he can no longer afford to pay for my gas to go back and forth between the two towns. I can't afford anything at this time because I just started my job. The neighbor who lives 2 houses away from my dh and kids has offered to let me stay with her again(I stayed there right after we seperated) The problems I am having making a decision is that my sister's roomate and I have gotten pretty close(not romantically) and he is planning on moving in with me when I am able to get my own place towards the beginning of Feb. Also, my sister's place is NASTY....it smells like cat poo and pee really bad and she and her fiancee are lazy slobs, so there are dishes not done all the time unless I do them. there is trash everywhere from where they don't clean up after themselves. I do not live like that. The problem with my neighbor's is that I won't have much privacy at all since the room is just a sectioned off space in the basement and her dd and her so have to walk through it to get to their room....also my neighbor and her kids steal things and I will be gone at work all day M, W, F and then seeing my kids when I can( as much as I can)
What would you do....would you move in with my dh's no privacy stealing neighbor or stay with my nasty, far away sister? Thank you!
