give me some room

This week has been crazy. Greg's son has moved back in with us. He is 16 and was living with his mother for almost a year. When he moved out we used his old room as storage and of course I was using his closet. Now my half of my clothes, purses, and shoes are homeless. I am glad he is back home but right now we can't walk through the house. The only place for me to sit is here at the computer.
We bought carpet for his room tonight so we will take care of that part and I am going to figure out how to sell some stuff on e-bay and I know that next weekend we will be at the flea market. What else can I do? This was sprung on us. We had no time to prepare his room for him. His mother kicked him out of her house. She is phyco! She called the cops on him and he was picked up for having cigarettes (a habit his mother allowed, but we do not!).

I have to go do some major cleaning (throwing away). I would take a picture of the way the house looks but I am to embarrassed to show anyone how cramped everything is. That boy has so much stuff.

Greg and I are trying to throw stuff away and his son just called and wants to buy furniture for his room.......where does he think it could go? He needs carpet in his room first. (BTW) he does not have carpet because when he was 15 he thought it would be cool to take up his carpet and have hardwood floors....now he wants carpet!!!

wow, sounds like he'll have to have a think about maybe selling some of his stuff.
I can understand how you must feel about not having much room, I come from a large family (10 kids) & we only had a 3 bedroom house.
Hope everything works out for you.

At 16 I would not care what He wants...you pay the bills! When he buys a place of his own...then he can get what he wants!
