ROFL! No, her roommates are weaving each others baskets, while she's getting her pottery glazed.
I'm planning on moving out of my parents house, and moving to Petaluma CA by Halloween
What A school?
My plan was to move there before I even thought about C schools. But I'm going to take the HST EMT C-School
Twice yesterday, actually. And then I built more furniture. YAY SINGLE LIFE
I read Tac's first post and immediately disagreed. I'm 29 and have always lived with my parents. I also hold a degree and I'm completely debt free closing in on a 6 figure salary. I WORKED my ass off to accomplish all those things(also sacrificed a lot of things most Americans that age don't). I wont say i did it alone, my parents came here from a very poor country. hell my dad didn't even have a bed and 3 square meals a day until he came here. They didn't have much but they worked hard and helped me where they could. I appreciate them and when i buy a house as far as I'm concerned they can sell their house and move in with me and I'll support them until the last day we are on this planet. Its called family values we should help each other not run away from each other. If you think I'm any less worldly because i didn't make the same choices 90% of people made, i don't really care because i focus on how I'm doing.
I salute you Integra! you're OK in my book besides being 100% absoluytely right. being on our own is only a temporary thing at best, except for those that shun thier responsibilities to the parents that made it all posible. Without a healthy family unit, the siociety will fail.
This is really all there is:
Tac Driver, If you're interested in engaging any live-at-home people directly (and I assume you are, as this is your thread), then why not speak to Integra? Now's your chance to tell him what part of life he's failing to grasp...
yeah what smirnoff said.
I happen to live on the same property (not with her, but next to her) as my mom because it's my turn to take care of her.
What's everyone's plans for when it's thier turns to take care of thier aged parents?
My parents always tell me to just shoot them when they start acting like that. "That" being like my grandparents.
We'll see... right now they are very health conscious AND conscious of putting a burden on us kids. They know how hard it is caring for an aging parent. Especially when that parent takes for granted how much you do for them. It really puts a strain on the relationship.
Life goes in a circle and we all get a turn to cross the line between end and start.
Wait so are you joining or not?
I started this thread 5 months ago and left it there. You want me to comment because somebody can finally wipe their own ass?
The day is approaching when you wont be able to wipe your ass .... think your kids up to the challenge ?
My son has Muscular Dystrophy and can't wipe his own ass so no. I wouldn't expect it of my daughter since she has a daughter of her own to worry about. My retirement funds and living will, will take care of any nursing care I require.
No offense Integra, but living with your parents that long is a little strange IMO, especially when you're pretty successful career wise and could easily afford to leave on your own. I'm curious how that plays out with the ladies?
It wasn't strange until up about the 1960's. It was the norm in a large portion of the country.
Carry on with your browbeating then.
I'm enjoying my gray area of in, yet not. The Lt. and Cdr. I work with at PPC tell me that I'm in probably the best position I can be in for experience, but little to no money; And while going full active would be a hell of an experience, I couldn't be doing any of the things I do now because of rank/rate and my lack of a college degree. It's nice having 15 people report to you, and directly controlling what direction the unit goes in as our equivalent of an XO. I'm going to reevaluate how I feel in 6-10 months and reconsider it... I'm only 20 so it's not too late to change my mind someday in the near future.
No offense taken. My parents live in a two family house i have the upstairs apartment. I'm in no way bragging, but I've been with more women than most guys i know. I've also had several serious relationships. The only real thing living with my parents effects me from living on my own is throwing parties. Out of respect for my parents peace and quiet i don't really have parties here. It maybe a little weird to people here, but every time i start saying I'm going to move out my parents literally get disturbed by the idea. When i was buying my house my dad was visibly upset. They want to keep the family together.
there's not enough "keeping the family together' imho.
Integra, curious where your parents came from?
Well you see when a grandma loves a grandpa....
