insomnia in NY and now I'm thinking way too far ahead. I live alone and when my family visits overnight during the holidays, I feel like it's so crowded in my small apt. We're 3 people sharing one bathroom, etc. So now, of course, it just dawned on me. How the hec am I going to deal with his family visiting for 2 weeks at a time?
You see, what I didn't say before is, he did not renew his tourist visa, so he is here unlawfully and cannot go back home, so his family comes to visit, but only 2 at a time, like his mom and his aunt. They sleep in his bedroom and he sleeps on an air mattress in his living room. So now my mind is racing, if he really does like me, and we end up dating and living together, I have to deal with his family visiting!!! And I don't know how the hec they eat over there. He doesn't even have a regular kitchen table. He has one of those stool/ high chairs with the tiny table. Do they eat at his coffee table by the tv?
However, I am just thinking, how would anyone with my crowded issues deal with this? Offering a hotel is out of the question, because how would he spend time with his family. He still works, because with his construction job, he doesn't get paid if he doesn't work..... so he just has the evenings and weekends. Ok, I'll stop. This is crazy but needed to vent, however, I do raise a good point. As it is, I don't sleep well because of my noisy neighbors - which is how this whole thing got started. I mentioned to him I want to move so he offered me money to help me move if I marry him!!!! Oh, the irony.....
edited to add air mattress "in his living room"
