My sister moved into my house just over a week ago and she’s starting to drive me insane. I feel invaded and like I don’t have my own space any more. Most of the time things are good but then sometimes she just oversteps the line.
I found that she’d been coming into my bedroom while I’m at work and using my computer. I don’t want her in my room when I’m out, let alone touching my PC. I’ve put a password on it now so she can’t use it but I shouldn’t have to do that.
Just day to day is hard. I feel like I *should* go hang out with her when I get home from work and then the time just stretches on and I get nothing done.
We went out with a friend of mine last night. Tonight, I’m going over to his place. I’ve been looking forward to it because it’s the one night of the week I get to spend without her. But last night she kept dropping hints about wanting to go with us and he asked her if she wanted to come along. She did the whole – I don’t want to be in the way – thing, which is so sincere after all her hints to be invited, and he was all – no, no, it’ll be fine. But the whole time, I was thinking it won’t be fine. I don’t want to constantly be doing things with her.
I’m starting to feel smoothered and I don’t know what to do. Things might be better next week when she starts work and, after the first three weeks, she’ll be working shifts so we won’t see each other so much. But that doesn’t help at the moment.
