- Wedding: April 2014
I’m in my early 20’s and still live at home with with my parents, my sister who is mid 20’s and my 2 kids ages 3 and 2. My eldest sister (mid thirties) recently moved back home with her 2 girls (5 and 8) and she is going to have a baby next week! Can you imagine how packed our family home is? My sister’s husband is going away to study and because of financial restraints she is back home.
My mid-20’s sister is being a complete drama queen! You could ask her the simplest question (do you know where the ___ is?) and she would turn it into the biggest arguement! I already expected that there would be drama given that there are SOO many females in one house. (plus my eldest sister has anger issues that she is trying to keep underwraps… can you say “dormant volcano”?)
My sister called her boyfriend to help her to “escape the house” and now she is by him. She goes by him everyday after work and stays there overnight (since before they were officially going out) but as of recently she says that we are running her out of the house *rolls eyes*. 90% of the time we do not respond to her created drama. But right now, she is pissing me off! She did the same thing when I was pregnant saying that crying babies will run her from home *rolls eyes*
I can already see that the current conditions our home is in right now, I need to get my big girl panties on and move the hell out. My SO knows this but is adamant that we see how this semester runs while we save our pennies. An engagement is pending and I believe he sees the need to get his big boy undies on to secure the sanity of his family.
I don’t know how long I can keep my peace. I’m the kind of chick who avoids drama. I do not get into shouting matches (maybe when I was a teen but only with the drama queen sister) I think living with a million people (plus 1 dramatic and 1 hulk-like sister) will drive me crazy little by little. I am an introvert who needs personal space… I have none right now :(.
Any words of wisdom out there?
