A little everyday sumpin sumpin

Life happens to everyone-
You can be going along with every good thing happening to you and BAM! life happens.....
I have not yet recovered from Jessica,Robert & Bella moving in and Let's face it, I'm still waiting for Will- the boy in the spare room to figure his life out.... when life has happened again.... Erin and Justin have to move back home and start over.... (I have to say this so Erin doesn't get upset- Erin, I know that you and Justin have never asked us for a thing- I also know that you 2 are not wanting to move home BUT I also know you have no choices, so you are going to move back home no matter what so- life happens... So even if we bitch- complain or whine- know we love you and we are just suffering from busting at the seams here in this small nest)
Now let me bitch and complain, just a tiny bit, and not about them, but about my home life the way it is right now.....
Number 1- my garage looks like a freight train hit it and the end isn't in sight....
Number 2- the back porch looks the same now because while Georg and I went on our 2 day get away they set up a weight bench and shoved all my stuff to the side....
Number 3- NO ONE but me empties the ash trays .... Thank God we don't smoke inside....
Number 4- they over load and generaly abuse my washing machine and dryer all the time....
Number 5- If and thats a BIG IF, they do clean the kitchen, they never load the dish washer correctly or even check the dishes to see if they did in fact get clean, so..... you may find things attached to dishes in the said cabinet, at any given time.....
Number 6- I love my Grand Daughter immensely, heck I even love my Daughter, BUT What I don't love is, the way that her(my Daughter) and her Boyfriend keep up with Bella's dirty
clothes , dirty diapers and all left over foods or bottles.... Call me old fashioned BUT back when I was young and having Babies, I cleaned the bottles and cups just as soon as they were done with them....
Number 7- I hate that all 3 of the adults that share our home do not save a cent and if we say something to them they ALL get pissed but hell, we WANT our house back at some time~
Number 8- Why do my Children boomerang ???? I thought I raised them to get the hell out at 18- 19 - or even 21......
Number 9- look, everywhere I look in my house, there is something that needs a place but there are NO places for them.....
and finally ...
Number 10- Georg tries to be nice he prorates rent and in Jesse and Roberts case (because of Bella) he doesn't charge enough- we are the ones footing the bills here........
So although I have this fairly cool attitude for life I am just over drafted with my most of the time really great kids.....
I know things will work themselves out, they always do, but hey, Georg IS looking for out of town work now... * sigh*
If he goes to Virgin Islands, I'm going come hell or high water....
I didn't even hit base with the dogs issues I have here... I'll save that for another day....
Now come on and Fuel My Blog!




Peace!

It's Ok Momma. I understand. When you call I will talk with you more. I love you! You are so right on the not wanting to move home. I don't want to have to burden you guys.
P.S. Your statement did NOT hurt my feelings Mom at all.
XOXO
Your Oldest,
Erin

I totally understand, mamasita!! Big T's kids have NO CLUE!! The daughter lives in the house Big T used to live in (won't work, won't pay bills... so guess who has to write the checks for it).

The boy is too damn lazy to even take his dog out or put anything in the dish washer.

Sometimes I wish we had waited until the kids were grown and gone to proceed with our life.

Ah...sorry to hear about all these. I hope your life will be back to somewhat more normal again and you can have the house to yourself and Georg again after some time. Wish you ALL the best!!!!!

Peeves me off when my wife doesn't load the dishwasher when it's my turn. She's evil and abusive that way.

I just stopped by to say hi and leave a hug behind.

Hugs Judy!

That dishwasher thing is universal. I'm always re-loading ours! I wonder if we disconnect something and make them do dishes the old-fashioned way, if that might inspire them to load dishwashers properly?

Sometimes life is just suck. Where I am, housing prices skyrocketed last summer, so that a simple 1000 sq. foot bungalow in a middle class area is selling for $300,000. It makes it impossible for young people to even think about moving out. I paid $208.00 a month for my first apartment. I had one bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, balcony, storage room. My oldest moved out for a time last year. He paid $400.00 a month to share with three people. They had only the main floor of a house, basement rented to someone else. So they shared one bathroom, the kitchen and living room and each had a bedroom.

SHEESH.

It's so much harder these days for kids. Honestly.. to even think how are they ever going to buy that first home?

But huge hugs. I hear ya!
