Dear Amy: I am a 32-year-old woman living at home with my parents, grandmother and college-age brother. Last year, I had to give up my room when my grandmother moved in with us.
This year, my brother moved back home to attend a local college, so I had to give up that room too.
Due to a lack of personal space, no bedroom, no privacy and being tired all the time (literally and figuratively) from sleeping on the basement couch every night, I decided to start looking for another place.
I found a place that was affordable...
