How many people live in your house?

In my house we have 3 people. It's me, my boyfriend, and my cousin who is going through a divorce. I know just with these 3 people it gets a little crazy trying to keep everything organized and running smoothly. How about you? How many people live in your house? Are they all related? Does it sometimes get crazy with that many people?

There are eight people living in my house. My aunt and uncle lives upstairs with my two little cousins, I live on the 2nd floor with my mother and little brother and my grandparents live on the bottom floor. It gets crazy when anyone gets in a fight with someone since we all live so close. Also a bit annoying when we have to take turns with the kitchen and deal with the dishes. Ah well, still a happy family

Wow I bet that would get a little crazy! Eight people?!?! Wow! I don't think I could stand living with that many people of my family, When I lived with my dad we had Me, my dad, my stepmom, my 2 brothers, my grandaddy, one of my brother's girlfriends and sometimes my brothers son. That was craziness because I was the only one who cleaned.

Besides me there are three others living with me. Its my grown daughter, her husband and my 3 year old granddaughter. Yes it gets crazy especially for me who likes a clean organized home at all times. Sometimes I just go crazy cleaning and other times I just get so upset because they can't keep anything clean. I clean the entire house and once everyone comes home from work within a few hours its like I never cleaned. Its so annoying.

I know how you feel sometimes my boyfriend annoys me because I clean while he's at work and then he'll come home and eat and dirty like 3 bowls and who knows whatever else. It gets really frustrating. Luckily my cousin helps me keep the house looking nice some.

Thats good that you have someone to help you I do it all by myself. I wouldn't mind if they were not slobs because they both work but this is crazy.

It is just me and My Husband, 2 dogs, and the cat now. and it is easy to keep things organized, and running smoothly. But at one time when all the kids were still here (We have 8 of them) it did get real hectic at times. and things were never organized. And nothing was ever where it should be. but you get used to all the extra activity, and you sure do miss it when they are gone.

Aww I bet so! Sometimes I hate having an extra person living here with us but I know once she moves on I will get lonely while my boyfriend is at work.

There's only 3. Me, my husband and my 9 year old daughter. And, our 3 dogs and 3 cats. It's not too bad. But the pets do outnumber us. LOL!

There are only three people who live in my house, me, my partner and our daughter. So its just immediate family really which suits us just fine. We like our privacy as a family so we would never have anything like a lodger, but if a family member needed to come and stay with us then we wouldnt mind letting them.

That sounds really nice. It was just me and my boyfriend here, but I'm like you a family member needed somewhere to go and me and her are really close so I couldn't turn her down.
