I am doing this anon because I dont know if she is on cafemom or not...probably not. My husbands ex wife has always had an issue with cleaning. Her car is a complete mess, filled with empty soda cans, trash and not just hers, my stepchildrens as well. In her apartment it is like she has a little bit of hoarder in her. In her living room she has cans of food stacked up and there is also trash on the floor, dirty dishes all over the kitchen, clothes, toys everywhere, now they are saying there is a lot of flies in the bathroom and whenever they go in there the flies are all over the mirror and flying all around them..they dont want to be in the bathroom because of it. With the expection of the flies, her apartment has been like this for as long as I remember. I have gone over there a few times to help her clean and to teach her and work with her. Her children are 9 and 7 so they are old enough to help clean but she doesnt make them. So when they are over here no matter how much I try to install cleanliness and stuff it goes all out the window when they are over there. Then after a few days with her they come over here and we have to basically start all over.
I dont know what else to do...neither does my husband. I have my own house and 7 children to take care of..i cant and wont be going over there all the time to clean her apartment. I just dont knwo what else to do. I dont want to call DSS because i know that she has a history of depression and stuff...but why cant she just clean. She has two children..I have 7 plus her two here and our house is clean..not immacualte..but clean never the less.
Does anyone have any ideas on what else that we can do?
