I will give a little background. (Please don't bash, I already feel badly enough as it is)
The background is this: We are in a program for housing. The housing authority pays so much of our rent in this apartment and we pay the rest.
They have inspections every year. Okay, no problem right? Wrong.
We went over the list of things that needed to be clean and worked our asses off for a week or more to get this place clean up to their standards. (I have been battling with depression for about a year now, and I'm the main one that cleans.)
Anyway, she comes in and automatically says we failed the inspection. She will be back in a week, if it isn't up to her standards then she will be giving up 30 days to evacuate the apartment.
I can see a few points here. We didn't get a chance to mop the kitchen floor because the mop heads need to be washed again first. which means the hallway/stairwell and the bathroom didn't get mopped either. Both bedrooms and the living room got mopped. The walls are clean the fridge while it needs cleaned out on the inside is clean on the outside and so is the stove. I need to reclean the oven.
She even came in and took pictures. OF everything. And was really nasty when she spoke to us. There are 6 apartments here. 3 are already empty and there will be another one empty soon. That leaves us and one other couple in the apartments.
The housing authority does their own housekeeping inspections as well and hasn't told us that we are bad housekeepers. Early intervention was here for 2 years, and they are supposed to say something to us if they feel that it is unhealthy for our son to be in the house and then if nothing is done then they report it. They are required by law to do this. They haven't said anything to use either. Neither did the lady that was the liaison before this one. She actually mentioned it once. Other than that she was fine with it as well.
We have lived here for 3 years. I have yet to have more than 2 months go buy without the threat of being kicked out.
This is no way to fucking live. (pardon my cussing, I'm a little stressed out here right now)
I can't help but think that this stressful living situation is a major influence in the struggles that me and DH have been having with our marriage.
On top of all of that, it stressed my son out to no end when the inspection happens because his schedule is all messed up for the entire day as well. Which causes me more stress. I hate to see him having a really bad day full of meltdowns. And today has been more meltdown than happy for my son. Which isn't normal for him.
I'm so pissed off, I'm near tears. This is not the way a family should have to live. I shouldn't be this stressed out over how clean my house is or isn't as long as it isn't a detriment to my family's health.
