my husband, kids and I moved from Az to Ca... temporarily staying with my mother until able to move out (hopefully very soon)...I finally convinced my husband to leave Az to be with my family - mom, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews.. I wanted the kids to grow with them and play with their cousins...I told my husband my mom would gladly watch the kids any time and we can finally go out at night alone... but things went crazy once we got here, I will make it short and not give many details because I can almost write a movie about this more like a comedy-drama type... but I noticed that after 9years or so of not really living with them or seeing them too often they have kind of changed or I just don't know them anymore is like I don't even belong anymore they're grumpy, greedy, unfair, and make a deal about anything! sometimes they're nice and next thing u know they're talking about us...my mother is not the nice grandma I thought she was she even feeds her animals like dogs and cats and screams at the kids saying go a way let the animals eat when all the kids want to do is play! once the kids ate some watermelon (which I think I even bought) and she was saying it was for her turtle pet! is just too many things....we can't shower at certain times, can't do laundry, don't use electric...we can't be at the living room, many times we get encourage to go out (wonder why right?) ... we pay 1/4 of the mortgage to stay in 1 room but we bring food for everyone to eat even visitors, I help my mom with a lot of things ( that was my reason of moving with her too) and sometimes she does help me too but is definitely not what I though...she complains a lot and seems like the only reason she told me it was okay to move in with her was because of $$$...so now I am sad and disappointed that here I come with my good hopes and kaboom big surprise all my family cares is about money! this is the worst part - she dare to say I should've help my husband by not having so many kids -I got 4... she had 5... my husband and I are both veterans with degrees and job experience just not a very good situation right now...she didn't even had half that and she tells me this?! sorry I forgive her for all she's done I still love her but I don't think it will ever be like I did before now that I know how she really is...there's more insanity in this story but perhaps I will save it for the movie or book I will write one day....
