My brother moved in with us. He is a nice guy, but he is too laid back about staying at places. He does not think that he might be messing up another family’s routine. My wife and I both love him, but he has quirks that neither one if us have. The kids treat him like he is one of their peers. They do not mind having him around. Our goal was to get him out on the weekend looking at apartments in Alamo Heights area.
He had the money to move. He just did not have the motivation. He would give us money for staying at our place. We did not want it, but he would leave it around. I found rent money in my sock drawer. I asked him why he was in my sock drawer. He told me to leave me rent money to find since I was not accepting it when he tried to give it to us. He did not think anything about going into the drawers in our bedroom to leave the money. He would not ever bother anything, it was just weird. Yes, my wife and I are a little stuffy when it comes to that stuff, but he is very open about it. He once told me I could borrow a pair of underwear from him when most of mine were in the dryer and I had to leave for a business trip. Nice he offered but weird.
We found him one of the nicer apartments in Alamo Heights area. It has a fitness center and a pool for his workouts. He likes to stay in shape. Plus, he could finally adopt a dog. We are not into pets, but my brother has been talking about adopting a dog from a shelter for two years now. He has been with us for about six months. It was time for him to move, and he said he really liked the apartment. It has a fireplace, a nice kitchen, hardwood floors and big closets to store all his junk. He will be very happy.
