One room is my moms "office", the other is the "home gym" and the third is DS playroom. With me having to move all of my stuff out of the room, the gym is where I had to put it all and my mom uses her office to get away from my dad all the time. The playroom is out of the question because there is no way DS will fall asleep with all of his toys in with him. Lol
I live with my parents, first off. (Before I fet bashed with the stupid cliche "then move out" bs, obviously if I could, I would! Only a few more months and I'll be well off enough to support DS and myself...so please don't even go there). I also pay rent. It's not a lot but I do pay rent and my other bills. $300 for rent if anyone asks.
Anyways, they have guests coming to visit for the Daytona 500 and they fly in today.
Here comes my issue....
They requested that I give up MY room and bed and requested that they both have 2 pillows each.
My DS and I stay in one room. That is the only space we have. My parents have a fucking 5 bedroom home but I am requested to give up my one space. When my ex husband and I seperated, I took what I came into the marriage with and everything of DS'. Obviously, my room is cramped because we moved from a 3 bedroom home, to a small bedroom.
I was then given a list of tasks to complete before they come.
This has included (and I got no help), hands and knees scrubbed tile floors (the entire house is tile btw), wash all windows, clean, wash sheets, uncramp my room (meaning take all my shit out of my room and find another place for it), scrub the bathroom, clean all glass, top to bottom dust, vacuum, scrub all appliances, counter tops, baseboards, fake plants, etc.
Now all of that is 100% reasonable and because I'm grateful for my parents for allowing me and DS to stay here, I usually take care of the cleaning and do it on a regular basis. The home is always clean. When my mom requests these type things...it's not normal cleaning, it has to be hands knees, toothbrush, etc type cleaning and then inspects it and criticizes it all and how it needs to be better.
The fact is, these aren't my people!! My parents could have offered their bed, my dad (who is just sitting on the computer), is doing nothing and haven't helped with a damn thing.
Then, I have to give up my pillow, too to honor their request of 2 pillows each.
I refuse to give up DS' pillow. So, I have to make a pallet on a cold ass tile floor for myself, DS has to sleep on the couch.
This would be okay if it were only for a few days....no! This is going to happen for 12 days!!!
I know this is petty but a little help would have been nice, not honoring a stupid request that put both me and DS out of a bed when there are 3 other rooms and my pillow.
Sorry has to get that out. I won't say anything to anyone here because I'm a nice person.
