I feel like I can never get anything done. There are 3 adults and 4 kids in my house. This includes me, my 20 y/o sister (Jackie) and her 21 y/o husband (Connor), my 10 y/o son (Hunter), 6 y/o son (Connor or CJ), and 11 mo old twin girls (Sierra and Dakota).
I am disabled and have panic attacks daily. I also cannot stand or walk for very long, or bend and stoop because of my back and heart. I clean as much as I can and take care of the kids as best as I can. Connor works, does dishes, takes out trash, and helps with the kids. Jackie does laundry, picks up, and helps with the kids. Hunter helps with his sisters. CJ plays with his sisters and that's about it.
Hunter is very mature and responsible for his age unless his brother is in the same room. Then he gets an attitude and acts like he is 6. CJ has some major issues but has yet to get a diagnosis. He likes cutting things (he has cut up two playpens), sneaking into other people's things, and pretty much the whole "terrible twos" getting-into-stuff phase.
is behind on his schoolwork. Their room is a disaster zone. My
kitchen is a complete mess. There is BB's all over the living room
floor that I cannot get the kids to pick up (CJ emptied the jar in the
floor). There are roaches taking over my kitchen no matter what bait I
use. My laundry is piled up. And the landlord still has not fixed the
damn refrigerator! (And Connor actually fixed the sink cause he was
tired of waiting on the landlord)
I feel like I am one more smart mouth comment or sibling argument from having a nervous breakdown! Thankfully my therapist appointment is tomorrow...that is if I can afford the $175 session since I have no insurance. If I could afford it, I would hire a housekeeper or something to come and help me get caught up one good time. *le sigh*
