Just over 3 weeks ago I began working 10-12 hours every day to get our house ready to sell. I'm so exhausted and ms acting up in some scary ways. I'll see my neurologist next week as still too much on my plate until then. My dd and sil made promises to do some things that they repeatedly failed to keep. Since we let them live there for 30+ months rent free our expectation was that they would keep it up. It is about 5,200 sq ft so plenty of space for their family of five plus German shepherd. When I finally lost my temper with my sil, he just laughed.... This after he failed to repair floors he promised to repair the week before. He managed to miss the deadline when the photographer came and even the next day when about 30 realtors came through on tour. His mess was still evident in three rooms. He told me I never have to speak to him again. I told him that's not very mature. He laughed. I cried. I've not seen or heard from him or dd since. We've been so generous in every way...we've been Santa, Easter bunny, bought almost all the kids' clothes and this was the third time they moved in with us. The difference this time is that we moved out onto a condo to give them their privacy and space. As they moved into their new home we let them take lots of furniture, appliances, large snow blower, lawn mower, other power and hand tools, ladders, etc., etc. Meanwhile the house and yard were left in very poor shape! I am so sad and really tired of being a door mat. My ms is a big challenge, but because I must help with an important convention this Thursday, Friday, Saturday I just pray I can stay on my feet for one more week. I'll be hosting and introducing scholarship recipients, have a large display to complete, and have three related events to attend. Thanks, friends, for letting me vent. You are the best!
