He is out of a job, and with the economy the way it is, it may be a while before he finds one. We live in a 29 ft Travel Trailer, so space is at a premium. He moved from Iowa to Missouri to live with his sister, but she is moving and did not invite Matt to move with her and her family. We are on a tight budget right now. (I don't work during the winter.) I really don't want Matt to have to live in his van, and I understand part of his problems, but am I wrong in resenting his full time presence in our lives? He doesn't seem grateful for what we do for him. It's like he figures that his dad still owes him. It would be different if Matt weren't such a "know-it-all". And he gets upset when I scold/correct him like a child. But I figure if he's going to act 14 instead of 34, shouldn't I have the right to treat him like a 14 year old? I don't want to be the wicked stepmother, but I don't want to get walked on, either.
