My mom is coming to stay with us after she has surgery next week and I’m worried about the fact that she loves the air conditioning so much.
I just don’t know if we’re going to be able to afford the air conditioning bills once she comes in and starts adjusting the thermostat in our house.
I know that she’s going to do it because she really has a lot of problems with having good boundaries about things like that. It’s like she thinks that my house is her own house, which is fine since I used to live in her house when I was growing up, but my husband doesn’t like the fact that she doesn’t care about our rules. He is actually concerned that it is a bad idea that she is going to come and live with us during her recovery time after the surgery. I don’t really know what else to do though because I don’t have any siblings that she can go and stay with. Basically, I am the only one who can help take care of her after she gets the surgery done so we don’t really have much of a choice other than to let her stay here with us. I don’t really think it’ll be that bad if we can set some ground rules at the very beginning. I am just going to have to tell my mom that she can’t set the thermostat settings any lower than 70 degrees while she is here. At her house, she keeps the thermostat settings at around 65 degrees year round. It’s going to be a big difference for her, that’s for sure.
