Tired and Irritated

Thursday, February 13, 2014

I am so mad this morning. I am not a day person at all and so I take care of all the stuff that has to happen at night like making sure my daughter has her bath and her hair washed and getting her to bed on time and then I stay up until 3am and my fiance is supposed to take care of getting her ready for school and driving her there (since he has to go to school at the same time as her anyway) so this morning I'm sleeping and she gets in bed with me and I ask her why she's not ready for school and she says she isn't feeling well. I check her temp and it's fine and start asking her questions about what's going on that is making her feel bad. Turns out she was just tired and did not want to go to school. Why am I angry?? My fiance lets this happen once a week and she has not had a full week of school in the past 2 months because every time she says she doesn't feel well he keeps her home because he doesn't want to get her ready for school anyway. Why am I so mad? She's behind with her learning a bit and I have no help to pick up the slack so not only do I try to keep up with the stuff she's missing at school but I clean up after 3 people and myself because I have 2 other adult slobs living with me and I still get up every morning to brush my daughters hair because the fiance refuses to do that too....says he doesn't know how. WTF?! Call me petty but I might as well be single. I get no help doing anything. UGH!

    I'll never feel differently about the situation I just think our "roommate" needs to get his priorities together and find his own place. I will not air the dirty laundry on that situation on the internet though because I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings if they stumble across my blog.

    You're not petty. You have every right to be angry if he's not doing his part.

Be thankful you know all this about your fiancÚ now before you make the mistake of getting married. He may say he'll "do better", but it never lasts. Things like this only get worse. Not better.

From what you've written he doesn't want the responsibility of taking care of your daughter. Another red flag. If he can't be trusted to do something pretty basic in a family relationship, what's going to happen when other problems come up in the future? And they always do. That's life.

Don't say you weren't warned:)


It sounds like it's time to get rid of the "other 2 adult slobs also". Living with that kind of stress must really be hard on you. Maybe you and your daughter would live a much happier life on your on.
