Okay, I need to vent a little; where none of my family member or on my friends list or anything and this is just the place to do it.
Chuck & I have had our place to ourselfs for just 2 months before his brother from Boston moved in with us. He wasn’t working, cleaning, paying anything. We were paying for his meds $200.00 a month, his food, his place to stay, his cigs, and personal items. Plus he took over our daughter’s room, and was stinking it up, because he would only shower once a week, if we were lucky. Well, I couldn’t take it anymore. So I told my husband he had to go. So we payed for his bus ticket out of here.
Then, before he left my parent’s moved in. So I had 5 adults and a baby in a 2 bedroom 1 bath house. Can you imagine how crowded that was?? My parent’s are still living with us. But they are paying have the rent, which I am gratful for. But they have a dog that parks all hours of the night, they don’t clean after themselfs, they are so loud all night. They slam doors while my family & I are trying to sleep, and my husband has to get up at 5:00AM every morning. My electric bill is now over $200.00, my water bill is now like $80.00 a month.
I do all the cleaning, I do the laundry, dishes, sweep & mop my floors every day, I bleach my basboards at least once a week, I make the bed every morning, I take care of an active 1 year old, and my husband does the cooking. I don’t think I can do all of this much longer.
I think the only reason why my parent’s are still living with me is because they pay have the rent, and I get to keep my furniture (that they say is theirs, but we paid for it years ago before Chuck & I went to Boston for 6 months). I just want my house back. I want my daughter to have her own room again.
I don’t know how to tell my parent’s this without hurting their feeling’s, even though they have hurt mine several times. I mean these people kicked me out at 11:00 at night when I was 9 months pregnant. It’s just I don’t know what to do or say to them.
My husband & I can’t sleep at night with all the damn noise they make. Any suggestion??
