It’s now me, Gary, and the dog pack living in our house. Yea!!
This year we had two long term house guests. Step-son Taylor spent the summer months here, now he is in Phoenix. A friend, I’ll refer to her as J, broke up with her husband and needed a place to stay for a “few weeks”, which turned into a few months. J left this morning.
We are fine with helping out family and friends when we can, but our house is on the small side and is not set up for long tern guests. We decided that if/when we do this in the future, we will set an exit date with the guest before they arrive. We might move that date, but stays like this will not be opened ended.
Sometimes being a nice person gets to be more than expected glad you’re on your own.
