Hopefully the time will go by quick and Fiance and you will be back out on your own!

Oh boy, I get you on the smoking thing. My parents smoked for many years, inside the house, and it drove me nuts. It was their house, but it is just so irritating when people who smoke complain about being ill/coughing or not having money, because smoking is very much a contributing factor! Hello! The sad part is that even after certain family members have had cancer (more than once), only the person with lung cancer quit smoking. The rest just smoke away, seemingly oblivious!

On the upside, I am a very light sleeper, so listening to them cough themselves to sleep every night is probably what kept me from ever lighting up myself.

I am torn on this one. I totally agree that if you are living under their roof, you need to follow their rules and their schedule. It sucks, but it’s how it is sometimes.

That being said…their rules could actually kill you because of your asthma.

Unfortunately, I have never found a way to ask a smoker not smoke that hasn’t ended in me being called a fascist (yes, apparently I am trampling on their “Contitutional right” to smoke in my face) despite the fact I literally cannot breathe.

Get out of that house before it kills you.

You just reinforced my decision to NOT move in with FIL’s for a few months to save up money for a house.

I love them, but FMIL’s little quirks that are mildly irritating would soon have me in a bell tower with a rifle ranting about how I am an adult and well aware of my finances, and you know, if I want to buy new lip gloss it’s my business!

So yeah, thank you for reaffirming my decision. 🙂

Good Luck and just keep your eye on your new place. You’ll be out of there soon.
