This is a vent. I WILL discuss it with husband and the kids, esp the kids, when they return. They left Friday morning. They will be back sometime late tomorrow, not sure when. husband is off on Wed to have a day to do laundry and recover. I am disabled. NOT able to lift much or do much. Can't even cook much of the time. They left the garbage can stuffed to overflowing. I SPECIFICALLY asked to have it and the sink EMPTY when they left. Because I can NOT do it. EVERY freakin dish is dirty. ALL of them. Including a huge heavy pot filled with rice left on the stove. It is a 3 gallon stockpot filled to almost the top. The waste of food appalls me. And there is NO WAY I can even move it to empty the rice into smaller containers. I tried. I even climbed up and sat on the stove and couldn't manage to empty it out. They even ate ALL the microwave meals I bought and other easy to eat stuff like yogurt. ALL of them. I bought them on Friday and told the kids to NOT eat them. They had PLENTY of stuff that was easy to make, just not as easy as what I bought. Heck, they ate the leftover pizone thing from pizza hut my dad brought over specially for me - and it was LABELLED with my name and do not eat - grandpa's orders! I am not even able to clean the litterbox because there are five baskets of laundry in front of it. I have moved some of them, but even just pushing htem is hard on me. Such simple things - empty the sink of dirty dishes, take out the trash, put food in the fridge. Leave the stuff labelled for MOM alone. At least leave MOST of it alone. WHY am I stuck here in the sticks with very little I can fix to eat and a trashed kitchen and laundry area? I can't even order pizza because we are too far out for delivery. I haven't called my parents because this is their much needed "alone" time. I am manageing with cereal to eat. Maybe I will cook a frozen pizza if I can wash a cookie sheet tomorrow. But WHY? I want to know WHY, when they KNOW I can't do things, when this is supposed to be a time for me to not worry about things, and when I specifically ASKED for what I needed, did they leave me like this? My car doesn't even start, husband KNOWS this. So unless I call a taxi to take me to the store I am STRANDED.. BOY will they know I am unhappy when they return. Esp husband and thank you, who do the litterbox usually. Cause the cats are NOT happy either. Thanks for leting me vent.
