To make a long story short, both my husband and I lost our jobs earlier this year, racked up a ton of debt trying to stay afloat. We ultimately had to give up the house we had been renting for 2.5 years and had to move in with my husband's mother. My husband's since found a job, although he's not making nearly as much as his previous job, and he's only getting about 30 hours a week, and since I had no luck finding any work, I opted to go back to school full time.
We've been living with her for 5 months now, and she's been driving me absolutely crazy, because no matter how hard we try, we can't please her. She's incredibly OCD, and things must be done EXACTLY to her specifications. Her refrigerator is always stuffed full, so we can never buy our own food, but she complains if we eat something that "she had plans for", even though she has more food than she can possibly eat by herself. She's incredibly passive aggressive and instead of talking to us directly, she leaves nasty passive aggressive notes around the house.
I'm thankful that she's allowing us to stay with her rent free (in the garage), and I understand since it's her house, it's her rules, but I'm tired of being treated like a child. We have no privacy, and she walks in on our "living area" unannounced all the time. I really, really want to move out, but we're still trying to catch up on the debt we acquired and my husband doesn't make enough money by himself to even afford us a studio. I've been looking for a part time job to help out, but I go to school 9 am-9 pm M-Th, and no one wants to hire someone to just work on the weekend. Help!
