PULLING MY HAIRS OUT - AND I CAN'T SPARE A SINGLE ONE!

As usual, I go to do the laundry, and by the time I'm ready to place the newly washed clothes in the dryer - the damn dryer has clothes still residing there. Damn!!! I feel like the servant of the house. I do the cooking (mostly), all the laundry, clean - which includes all the menial tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, re-arranging, decluttering, etc. So much for semi-retirement.

I'm not saying I deserve an y medals - because the chores need to be done, but a little help would be welcome. When I ask for help or "suggest" something needs done, I get the same retort, "let it go and I will get it later!" Hell no.

When I want something done, I prefer to have it done relatively soon, not when the mood swings a person. Unfortunately, I must have done something wrong in raising my daughter. Reminding her that her bed sheets need washed - well you'd think I asked for a pint of blood.

Yesterday, I did a minor yard task - and she jumps all over me for not waiting for her to get the job done. That is so not happening. Of course, if I state that I am sore from doing some deed - I get the "I told you so" smug remark. I'm reaching a breaking point.

I am doing absolutely nothing today - not that there aren't things to be done - oops, guess I am doing something (laundry). But nothing else.

I'm terrible, I see so much that needs to be done and the reality that physically I cannot do it all, sets in. In my mind I can whip the world - till the world hits me in the face with a reality check.

OK - got that off my chest. The grandson will be home soon, so it will be time for homework and such.

Sorry for the irregular posts here, but when I set it up - it is strictly a place for me to VENT!!!

Have a great day all - or whomever still drops by here! LOL

Venting is good, so now you got that off your chest, you can go get your daughter whipped into shape. A little mother/daughter folding session is at hand. Thats how I taught my sons, ee sat and folded clothes together. Then say while were at it how about getting the sheets of your beds so we can wash them too! There's another trick but I'll tell you about that one later. See if this works.

"I'll get it later" - famous last words from Mr. RK. We have different ideas of neatness, obviously.

I completely understand. My son never wants to do things when I want them done, either. I'm all for coercion. I resort to it often, in fact. As in: Oh, you want me to do what thing? OK, I'll do it right after you do that thing I've been asking you to do for the last five days. This is delivered in a honeyed tone that drips with sweetness.

Venting works, especially since we males are so good at procrastination when it comes to chores.

Thanks, Mom, for your visit and comment at Politics Plus. You're followed and blog-rolled.
