I am from the outskirts of a small town in south Louisiana. I grew up living 4 houses from my dad's mother and all of her brothers and sisters and their kids all lived next door to one another. We (my family and my brother's) moved 4 miles up the road and being my dad's mother had passed away they moved right next to us. After 4 years of on again off again debating about moving...I am just wondering if anyone is in this situation??? I mentioned moving about 2 years ago to my mom and she didn't talk to us or the kids or visit for a whole week!
Wow, thats kinda a rough spot, I don't live really close to any family. But I totally feel for you. When you have a fam of your own, privacy is a must. In this type of situation, my advice to even the best of my friends would be: you gotta live your life for youself and do what makes you happy, life is way too short to live it doing what makes everyone else happy. So the way I see it is you have 2 choices: sit down and have a heart to heart with your mom about your appreciation for her and her love and caring, but how you also need some space when you're raising your own family, or just find a house you "fall in love" with and move, either way....you're stuck between a rock and a hard place :/
I know how you feel I live with my mom and dad and It seems like they don't ever want us to leave because one time I moved out with the boys and they didn't care if I came back as long as the boys where here it drives me crazy
