Living with a parent who's retired
Ever since my mom retired (partially, she works twice a week during the day) I feel like I have no personal space. When she worked nights I had the place to myself to basically shut down after the day and just sit quietly at the tv and just relax. Same goes for the morning, I wouldn't see her in the morning so I had time to get up and "wake up" now I see her morning, day and night. I love my mom but she can be difficult to be around sometimes, or maybe its just me, I don't know. If anyone lives with a parent(or a spouse) who's retired and is home more how do you handle it if it bothers you?. We had our different schedules which I found to be fitting for me, although I'm happy she's no longer in her stressful position, I just wish I had the peace and quiet. Everyone talks about the adjustment that the person who's retired has to make but no one talks about the people living with them that has to change their life as well.
