My Dad is planning to transport in with us in a few weeks because she has sold her home and she’s waiting to find another place that she enjoys enough to buy.
It’s not the greatest situation for us, since the two of us are already packed into our home care about sardines as it is.
I don’t mind having her here, and the kids care about it, but they stay up late, eating pretzels and seeing movies until all hours of the night. I know that’s the way that she enjoys it, but for me, that gets a little bit aggravating, but sometimes she oversteps her boundaries as far as my parenting goes. That’s another story, though, at this point, none of that is easily all that big of an issue. The main issue that the two of us have been having is how she keeps messing around with our thermostat, but my mother easily enjoys the a/c and so she enjoys to keep the temperature on the thermostat set around 67 degrees at all times. And that unique temperature might be great for her, but for us, it’s just a little bit too cold. The people I was with and I normally try to keep the heating and a/c in our home set around 68 degrees almost year round, then right now, the weather has barely begun heating up for the Springtime and my mother is already turning the a/c on in the house. I want her to guess comfortable living in our house, but I actually don’t want to have to pay higher cooling bills while she’s here. I easily hope she finds another home that she can transport into before Summer comes, and otherwise, the battle for control of the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C method will definitely intensify.
