well we just moved into his old house and are renting it from him. we moved in the 27th of march and have our old apartment until the end of april. so we loaded up as much as we could in our cars and the moving truck and left little minor things at the apartment to go pick up later, AND clean up later. all of this i told my parents several times, the most recent time Monday.
anyway, today him and my husband got in my husband's truck and drove over to get the rest of the stuff. i stayed home with our 3 daughters. while they were gone, i cleaned the entire downstairs, it was spotless. as soon as they got back, i went outside to help and the first thing out of my dad's mouth is him criticizing me for how dirty the apartment was and that i left way more than i should have. he even told my mom that there was food all over the floor and toys in the window sill.
well, the TRUTH is i went earlier this week, vacuumed all of the carpets AND shampoo'ed them to get some stains out. the only thing i had left to do (which i told him) was clean the countertops, bathrooms, etc. and as far as the food on the floor? he was referring to a few crumbs of food that were left behind in some of the corners of the carpet. JEEZ! perfectionist much?
i guess i was really irritated when he blew up at me since i just cleaned this house, anyway i told him to go home without even thanking him for helping my husband get the rest of the stuff. we have now reconciled and both apologized but it's still eating away at me. he basically implied we live like slobs or something and that i'm lazy. which really hurts because all i literally do ALL day is clean and take care of my kids. i'm doing the best i freaking can! but this is him, this is my dad, he's always pushed me harder and harder. B's were NOT acceptable when i was in school, and there were serious consequences if i came home with one. my car was always to be SPOTLESS or he would take it away from me.
