Anybody Need a Roommate??

Part of the time issue I've been having lately is that since February, there has been some member of my family living with Allen (the fee-on-sea) and I. First, my two brothers, Eric (24) and Ivan (19, soon to be 20) moved in on Super Bowl Sunday. Eric's then girlfriend, Natalie, was supposed to "visit once in a while" but ended up staying there, all day, everyday. She quit her job and sat on my couch until Eric earned enough for the two of them to move to Nantucket for the summer. So in April, off they went, leaving us with Ivan. Ivan is so non-intrusive that we actually had to seek him out when we wanted to talk to him, and life was blissful until Mother's Day.

See, my Mom and Dad split up sometime last August, and Mom had been bopping around and staying with friends but was now out of places and wanted to come stay with us "for a while". So, the weekend after Mother's Day, in moved Mom. Ivan moved out a couple weeks ago, but we still have mom and she shows NO SIGNS of leaving. She has no job, no prospects, no skills....and basically I'm just trying to hold the old relationship together, which doesn't leave me a lot of screw around on the internet time. So, folks, things are about to get a whole lot more personal around here, as I am no obsessed with the fact that I am 28 years old and supporting my mother.

On the plus side, I haven't done any laundry in months.
