L is for Living with my parents

I like and dislike living with my parents. ☺
Mom and Dad ringing in the new year a couple of years ago. ☺

Don't get me wrong, I love my's just that it's just a tad embarrassing to say that I'm 30 and I live with my parents!
I moved out of my parents' house shortly after graduating college several years ago, and then moved back in for a few months before I moved to Georgia a few years ago.  I lived in Georgia for 2 fantastic years.  When I was making my plans to move back to Michigan, I said I was going to move back in with my parents temporarily.  My plan was to live with them for a couple of weeks...a month tops while I got everything going back here in Michigan.  Well, that was 22 months ago!  And here I am, still living here in my brother's old bedroom (it's even still decorated in his theme, with his furniture).  If I could find a full time teaching job, I'd be able to afford to move out again, but until then...
I miss living on my own, and I know my parents miss their empty nest!  Occasionally my mom will tell me that no one wants me to move out more than they (my parents) do, and I have to remind them that, no, no one wants me to move out more than ME!  ☺

So, there ya go, I have combined my like and dislike into one topic today!


  1. I'm only kidding...mostly. ☺

  2. I am in a kinda similar situation, only I have 2 young ones in tow as well. There are aspects I love, and aspects I so do not love with this situation. SO I get ya, loud and clear.


Thanks for stopping by. Tell me what ya think!
