So one of my BMs are moving in with us as she begins her new life in the working world. She is here for only 1-2 months (yes, really, not staying longer).
I am cleaning out our spare room for her during this time as her move in date approaches. She is over frequently, but as she gets ready to move in, her actions have become a little controlling. Just yesterday as I was getting dinner ready, she walked around the house talking about how she was going to rearrange the entire living room because "Wherever I live, I like it to be organized." She proceeded to tell me that she was moving the TV to the other end of the room, that I needed to buy extension cords for everything and that we would staple the wires to the ceiling.
When I told her I wouldn't mind moving some things around, just not the TV or other electronics, she became really insistent because "Do you know how many times I've done this? A million, trust me it's easier this way!" I know my fiance wouldn't be happy with this, and I really like my larger furniture where it is. I wouldn't mind moving the smaller stuff around, but she won't take no for an answer.
On top of this, when I was cooking, she was sitting on the sofa near my fiance teasing him about how things would be moved around one day when he comes home from work. He asked her not to touch his desk or anything else since some of our furniture is second hand or older and could break...I don't think she was convinced though and I'm worried that I will come home to destroyed furniture and not be able to find anything!
She is also insisting on organizing my bedroom and laundry! Is it just me or is this way too controlling? I understand she will be moving in, but the financial situation is that she will pay less than 1/3 the bills for one month, and pay storage for second month before moving into her own place. I would love to incorporate her style into her space, but some of her back-handed remarks about my organization are driving me crazy!
I don't have a spotless home, but it's not THAT bad!!!
