Get out of the house as much as possible. Figure out mom’s schedule and set yours up to avoid her when you’re home.

I would sit down and talk to her.  You don’t want to be treated like a teenager anymore so talk to her about issues like an adult.   Also, if you’re not pulling your weight around, chores or maybe cooking once in a while. 


I had a huge problem with my mom when I moved back home after college.  Some of it was she got used to, and liked, not having teenagers around.  She cleaned her house on her schedule, and I got used to doing things on my schedule.  It was hard but we talked about it and she made me see her point….. she was doing me a huge favor by letting me stay in HER house rent free lol and as she put it…… i was free to leave at anytime. 😀

@jeg14:  Ah, I’m actually moving back to my parents’ house in 2 weeks.  For the 6 months leading up to the wedding.  FI is stationed in MO and I’m selling my condo because the rental market is such that we would lose a significant amount of money each year if we kept it.  I’m a little terrified my mom and I will clash like we did in high school – I’m 29 so I’ve also been out a long time.  My plan is to find a gym that I will go to in the evenings.  I have to wake up super early for my commute (like 430ish) and then with the gym, I wouldn’t get back to their house until close to 8pm.  Enough time to eat a quick meal, clean up from the gym, and crash. 

So, like others have said, find something to do that will limit the amount of time you spend there!
