Wrap Up

Things should be wrapping up soon! Looks like things are set to go according to plan... the deal on the new place should close on June 1st. The sellers will have a few days to move out, so I should be able to move in on the 5th.


I guess I was lucky to be able to stay with my folks until the deal finishes up, but it's starting to get to the point I can't stand things much longer. I mean, how would things be so different from when I was going to school and living with them? I don't know, but somehow it feels I have less time to myself than I ever did when I was a kid!

But when they were between houses, and came to stay with me for a few days, it didn't seem so bad. Was it really because they were the guests in my home, rather than the other way around?

My mother can't seem to let me do anything on my own, while my step-father is the exact opposite and is too lazy to help me out with anything. And when I'm not busy taking care of paperwork for the new place, or setting up utilities and whatnot, sometimes I just feel like relaxing with some movies or games, but they feel like they have to check up on me every five minutes. Or share coupons. Or show me something "interesting" like Bones ("See, she's got lots of book smarts, but she doesn't know how to relate to people! Isn't that a hoot??").

Anyway... Once I move, I think it'll be nice to be close, but not too close. Like in my last place, before I moved, it still feels like I'm in this in-between state where I can't really live how I normally would. I still can't get to most of my stuff, but at least the food is better and I finally have this great computer! Even once all the paperwork is done, I'm sure I'll have tons more stuff to do, but at least things can finally start turning back to normal.

Yeah, when you've lived on your own for a while, it can be tough to live with your own parents again. Even when it's a temporary situation, it's kind of hard to get past the parent/child mindset and not drive each other crazy.

Eheh, well, I've never known a life without my parents around until now, so I'm only starting to learn myself what the experience is like. It's... a bit strange in some ways, but not bad or anything.

I guess I'll never know what it's like to go back to them as their "guest" for a little bit, given the circumstances... Maybe they can play hosts for me in the afterlife when it's my turn to go.

Belated Addendum:
Oh, and yes, I think that your folks being the guests when they were selling the house likely was the reason that it felt "different" - I mean, after all, they were in your house, hence they had to play by your rules.

Not that parents won't likely try to bend the rules to their way of doing things while they're a guest, too - they're parents, after all. Heh. XD
