Most of you know for the last 15 months my daughter, granddaughter and I have been living together. For the most part we get a long fine, oh we have had our trials and tribulations but for the most part things go pretty smooth, in other words no one has called 911 so far (including the neighbors). There are a few things however we dont seem to agree on...........

My daughter thinks that children should be seen and not heard.............I don't think they should be seen either.

My daughter likes to watch reruns of Rosanne and I feel that they are too much like our family home movies to be watched all the time.

My daughter thinks that as long as the toilet seat is down there is no need to clean it, when I tell her I find the toilet gross looking.............she tells me to stop looking.

When my daughter hollers whatcha doing fatass........the cat and I look at each other wondering which one of us she is talking to.

When she asks whats for dinner........I tell her I don't know what are you cooking?

When I mentioned I would like a full course home cooked meal for dinner...............she gets the hungry man TV dinners..........and not to argue with her.......it does say home cooking on it.

I think dust bunnies should be vacuumed up.......my daughter thinks they make me good company when everyone else is sleeping.

Living with someone again is an experience with me. The last three years of my marriage, Gary was in a nursing home so it was being married and living alone at the same time..........a key, I found, to a happy marriage.

Living with a small child is an even bigger experience. Whereas I am use to watching my favorite TV show in complete silence other than the TV, I now have a 4 year old posed with a pencil in front of her mouth like a microphone, singing We're not going to Take It........a music influence that could only be adopted from her mother.

Music is not something my daughter and I argue about........She listens to shit, she knows I think its shit, and I bought her headphones so I didn't have to listen to the shit...........Problem solved.

When I moved back to Minnesota I had 2 vehicles, my camaro...which is not a winter car.........and my Jimmy 4x4 which is a winter car. My daughter did not have a vehicle. She did the math and came up with she got the Jimmy and I got the camaro.........and now I ask permission to use my own damn truck. Something is wrong here..............but I am not sure what..........well i do know what...........but since she allows me to use it a couple nights a week when I go to my sweeties........I don't complain...............much.

My mother once told me that I should wait until I get gray hair.........because my kids will start treating me like an imbecile.........I assumed since I colored my hair I could postpone this..........but sadly that's not the case. There are times here I wonder who is the mother and who is the child and I have come to the realization I must treat her as an adult............even when she doesn't act like one............I have to do this because when I tried to send her to her room one night for sassing me she just laughed. She is way to big to spank...........and being of the crippled status no way can I chase her down and beat the shit out of her..........cause she is just to quick and stays just out of arms length..........besides if I did catch her..........I would probably be the one with the ass whooping.

There are some things we do have in common, most movies..........other than vampires.........God i hate vampire movies.........Twilight and New Moon are the exceptions. We both like country music but she expands her musical tastes to as I described before shit......We watch the same tv programs, Law and Order SVU, Bones, and House. We like the same kind of foods for the most part. We do have our squabbles but considering we are living in a house to small for all of our stuff........we put two households together......I think for the most part we do fine. I could never repay her or thank her enough for helping me when I was at my sickest.......hell even now the majority of the household stuff is on her shoulders...........so if she wants to watch a vampire movie i can do something else, if she wants stew for dinner (which I hate) I don't mind a sandwich, If she wants to go see a friend I can watch my granddaughter............and if she wants to listen to her music..............she can put on her damn headphones............

Great blog Dayna! I wish I could say my daughter and I are getting along that well... Maybe we'll get there again once she moves back out!

Wait until she starts singing to a song she is listening to. My niece used to do that not realizing she was louder than anything going on in the house.

If she hasn't already the series True Blood on Show time she would definitely get hooked on if you have cable & if not no worries. It's where humans & vamps coexist somewhat peacefully. Along with being serious it has adult humor as well. Episode 104 Escape From Dragon House is the one where a human drank vampire blood & the next morning woke up screaming I got gout of the dick. I have seen the dvd's for sale at Walmart. I like it because it's funny, especially that one.

The thing I dislike about having little kids around is the TV shows and movies that they watch. I gain great joy from not having to be exposed to anybody else's taste in TV or music.

Apropos to this, I just got off the phone with my mom,lol and this blog reminded me of what I missed after I moved out. But no, its all good. When you're with family for awhile, you hate them being around, but after they're not there, you wonder what life is without them...

Its good, actually. Yeah.

I'm sorry but that was fuck'n funny- knowing how most women have a fit with the toilet seat standing at attention, after a guy uses the toilet... except your daughter!

Great blog Dayna! Kudo for you!

For me two women living in the house together past the age of 18 can be described very simply I only had a roommate for about six weeks when I was in college then moved out into an apartment by myself because she got on my last nerve.

When you get two very alpha females in the same house together things get interesting. I have found a few things about people getting older. Any personality traits that drove you crazy when they were younger are not usually going to get better with age. At one time here we had four generations of women in the household for about two months. Three very outspoken women at that and two little outspoken women in training as well. My poor son was also here at the time and spent a lot of time in his room on the computer. I wonder why? He says the key to staying in the house with that many women is to keep a good supply of chocolate to hand out to everyone and develop selective hearing.

To me the weird thing was having to become a parent to a parent. You can't exactly send them to their room when they misbehave.. I was reading an article recently on the oreo generation. The kids are moving out of the house and an elderly parent over the age of 78 is moving in. It does provide some moments that are hilarious though. One exchange between myself and my mother about a week after living together comes to mind. I was running the vacum and as usual had my music blasting so I could hear it. She asked me if I had to listen to that music while I worked. The first thing that popped out of my mouth was no I can listen to my music while you vacum. I did geta portable cd player with headphones for my birthday two weeks later. Think that was a hint?

As people live to get older I think you are going to have more households made up of two to three generations. The good thing about that is you know you are going to be able to get your kid back for those teenage years.

Sounds like he is ready for marriage now......

My daughter tells me all the time not to mess with her...........she gets to pick out my nursing home........

I remember one time when both my kids were sitting with me, I was at my sickest and could hardly walk........my daughter said if I had to start wearing depends into the nursing home I go...........I turned to my darling boy and said, You would take care of me wouldn't you? My son turns to his sister and says..............you know there are some really nice nursing homes in the area................. Thanks son......

I have blogged about this and there are statistics showing it. A lot of this will be because so many baby boomers are baby bummers; no retirement fund or pension, no ownership of property, and divorced.

A lot of the baby boomers are the ones who are taking care of the elderly now. More than anything I think it is sometimes more health issues with an older person and the lack of affordable options to take care of them. I know nursing homes in this area are either over $3000 a month or hell holes I would not leave anyone in. In my mother's generation you had wives whio never worked outside the home and one health problem can wipe them out. My dad had a massjve heart attack at 56 years old and became disabled. My mother had been a stay at home wife through the years and had no skills to get a job. That was a disaster like you would not believe. It pretty much wiped out all their savings and mine. I think the next generaton is going to be hit with this generaton losing their jobs and having to tap into retirement plans to survive. Or becoming ill after they lose a job and the health insurance that went with it.

I agree with what Bruce and RJ is saying but I also believe families are living together more and more because the economy has pushed them into it..........people have overspent........and now are losing their houses........jobs...........and they resort to moving in with family members............

In my case.......I could have chosen a nursing home.....My insurance would have paid for it 100% but thats not a life I wanted to live at the age of 46............and hey i am the one who gave birth and raised these kids...............now I can repay them for all the shit they gave me..........................

Forgot the green diskie thing. Damned senility...guess I need to pack up the dogs and invade my daughter's place. Instead of watching Sponge Bob, my grandson can watch Sponge Bruce, live and in person playing 24/7/365. What a delight for all concerned!!

Sounds like compromise is the big word here. I've lived alone for so long now, it would be extremely traumatic to live with anyone without lots of compromise...I guess that's the secret to any relationship.
