I am NOT your maid.

So when my first was born I decided to stay home during the day and care for my daughter. In the evenings I would teach classes and so forth. Of course I would spend all day cleaning to come home to a house tore up between one daughter and a husband. I would clean all over again the next day.

Seventeen years later I have a seventeen year old and seven year old. Two years ago I stood up before my family and said, "I am retiring as the full time maid around here. Hungry? Cook. Dirty? Clean."

That's right I have retired from being the full time household maid, I hate it, Im sick of it, tired of doing it all day long while everyone takes the pleasure to sit on their asses, watch tv, eat their meals, then make a damn mess.

Hubby now cooks and cleans, even does his laundry. Seven year has to clean her room. Teen has to clean her room and bathroom. I clean but not the full house. I tell them if you see it's dirty, clean it. I am not the maid.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

That is one job I would never do... Run a daycare especially in my own house.
