I'm fed up.
The kids don't have many chores. One chore is stripping the sheets off of their beds on Saturdays, putting on fresh sheets and cleaning their rooms. The other is cleaning their room so that nothing is on the floor (so I can vacuum).
This morning SS16 did as he was told right away but each time I checked SD's room it wasn't done. This was getting me annoyed, but I tried to keep calm and decided I would just wash SS's sheets first, and hopefully by the time they were finished washing, SD would have hers done. I came back into her room 45 minutes later and noticed she had thrown/stuffed her recently folded (by me) clean clothes into the bottom of her messy closet floor and clothes that I neatly hung and folded were scattered all over the place. I asked her nicely to please hang the clothes back on the hanger and refold the clothes and put them away in her drawer. She decided instead that she'd rather debate with me why she felt it was unecessary because she could easily find her clothes on the floor and they were going to get unfolded anyway. I engaged her for about 2 minutes when I realized, "what the heck am I doing?" NO PROBLEM. So I went into my room where I was painstakingly folding the kids socks, underwear, pants, tops, etc. Separated out her stuff and brought them into her room and threw them on her floor for her to deal with. I told her that I still expected her to clean her room and get everything off the floor so I could vacuum. I proceeded to vacuum SS's room and all the other rooms. When I came back again to vacuum hers it still wasn't done, so I left the vacuum in her doorway and told her that when she was done cleaning her room, she could vacuum her rug.
I know that was immature, but I deserve more respect. I have a LOT of chores to do in this house and folding laundry takes time. When I see my time has been wasted because of some bratty teenager, I don't really feel like wasting my time anymore. There are alot of other people in this house who appreciate the the work that I do around here and I'm going to focus my time on those people.
