So my cousins and I have our male cousin and his girlfriend and three kids are staying with us. Nobody told me about this until he said, "We USE to stay with his friend's house." Which means he is staying with us. My cousin she said, "No he's HOME. He lives with is now. Plus it's better for family to stay with family and they have no where else to go."
HATE changes! I hate when I'm not aware of things. Things aren't the same anymore. The kids always want me to play with them when I get off of work. I'm always suck babysitting because everyone else is working. I love then and I dong wanna kick them out. I can't. It's family. My other cousin said, "Sometimes we have to make sacrifices. Things will happen unexpectedly in life. Things aren't ment to be the same all the time. I know you like routine but it's good to mix it up sometimes. We have too many people in our house. It was just the three of us and now its 7. 7 people! I never had to live in a house of 7! I'm use to five or less. They've been staying with us for two months. They don't wanna leave. I know it sound mean but I love routine.

Fish and houseguests. After three days, they start to stink.

Our society places far too much emphasis on how far we should go to accommodate family. I would allow my family to stay with me for a set amount of time but they would be given a deadline to find another place. I value my solitude and privacy.

[@831314,AppleBlossom2113] yeah. Would they extend the reverse to you if that happened ? I know many would not.
DearAmbellina2113 · 41-45, F
[@476282,revenant] Mine certainly didn't.

Change is always unsettling.
You have to adapt your own life to accommodate others and that's annoying at the best of times.

Why are you being saddled with babysitting duties ? the parents should be taking care of their own !

People use the "family " word to take advantage of family members. I have had it happen to me. I would resent the hell out of them.

family should help family in fact you should help others in need even if not family but, if it's your place you need to be 100 %in charge. I've welcomed others into my home but always made it clear that's my decision and they play by my rules... If you like to chat about the topic please feel free to hit me up with a private message

It'd bother me too. I roll with the punches at work, but at home - I like to be in control of things and plan what's going to happen. Hopefully they'll find somewhere else to be soon. Doesn't sound like much fun for you. :/

Nuclear families are difficult. Its generally better to have big homes with generations and relatives living together.
DearAmbellina2113 · 41-45, F
[@11432,Greenbare] Oh I disagree. Extended families in one house stresses me out.

My roommate's family was here over Christmas. They destroyed my kitchen.
[@45528,hunkalove] What?!
Its irresponsible and inconsiderate of him to impose his gf and kids on you.
[@209334,ZzLig] Yeah it sucks.
