I'm 20 years old, and I have been through a lot in my life. Im just going to start out and say that I have two beautiful children and one on the way. I am married to a man who was abusive to the kids and I so we split up, and I got an order of protection against him. We haven't been together for a long time, I have found someon else, him and I have been together for a year now, and have a baby girl on the way. I have found the man of my dreams and he is very good to the kids and I. He is a good hard working man,who cares about nothing but God & his family, to me he is PERFECT! Well he recently got laid off at his job, and we have been staying with my grandparents : / Right now we have the money, and just waiting to find the right house for us. In the mean time, I have no car and he is at work all day long, So i stay in one bedroom with the kids all day long, when it is warm we go out in the back yard and play... but living here is so HARD! My grandparents expect me to do everything! Clean, cook for everyone in the house, and if they have to lift a finger they go off on me... My OB told me that I need to stay on bed rest, but of course i cant really do that with two children, so instead I try to just limit what all I do... but my grandparents wont stop saying mean things and it hurts my feelings that they think im being lazy.. because I have never been the lazy type.. I have always kept my house cleand and cared for my kids. My kids are bored to death here, they don't ahve much to do in this house.. so of couse they act out more, and they think my grandparents will let themget away with things.. I get more frustrated with my children here and I really hate that.. it seems as if my day consist of getting on to them : ( Ugh I just don't know what to do anymore. I know I need to keep my cool and not stress so much until we get outta here but its just soooo hard. I have been praying, and I know I need to have more faith and pray more often!! I just wanted to come on here and vent, and hope others will pray for my family and I to get everything together. Thanks for reading.. : )

I have been there done that. Living with relatives is super hard. Somehow there expectations seem higher than you would yourself. Although all my mother asked for was to do our dishes and make it appear we don't even live there. Like don't leave our stuff around. You can add me if you would to vent more I have been there and know what it's like.
