i moved back home about a year ago. purchased an apt got an awesome job and now am in a stable relationship with mr. octomato. Problem is.. for about the same time i moved back home, my mom has moved in on and off. when she's not at my place she's at my uncle's or her friends.
I have a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom apt. one TV in the spare room, one computer and well i haven't had a roommate in umm 5 years. My mom is great, in good shape helps around the house. She's 58 on and off on production local gigs. all in all she's the best mom in the whole world. but right now. i dont need/want her here.
When i get home i want my laptop on my lap so i can read mefi and some digg and reply to emails. she has the capital to buy a place and gain her independence and stop drinking my wine and not replacing it.
I tried taking her to some real estate appointments in her budget and giving her pep talks, but i'm done. It's been a year. i'm structured and make decisions and live with them. she doesn't. AT ALL.
I appreciate all her help and her support but, come on. after 7 years of living away and now this. Id like my naked time and my quiet time.
Basically this is my cry for help. What other ways can I motivate her to get her shit together. I'm done with the pep talk and the nice metaphorical back rub to the soul... is there anything else? PS mom is VERY SENSITIVE...
