I have had such a horrible day today. I'm sick, DS is so clingy and whiny, and the house is so disgusting.
STBX just moved out and I am faced with the task of cleaning the house. You have no idea how disgusting this house is. Just to use the kitchen for an example, the edges of the floor have food caked around them, there's food spattered on the walls and caked onto the stove, there's trash behind the trash can, and the refrigerator is half-full of moldy food. When STBX puts food away, he just tosses it in instead of putting it in neatly. I was trying to make banana bread today and had to call him to find out where he put the walnuts. He said "Umm..on the top one...behind the things in front..." by which I guess he meant, "In the cabinet by the fridge, on the top shelf, behind the first pile." I finally found them and tried to pull them out and everything was piled in there (not even stacked, just piled) so precariously that it all went flying to the floor. The soy sauce smashed and went everywhere. DS came running in and I screamed at him to get out. I then had to make my way (barefood of course) out of the kitchen to find my sandals and spend twenty minutes sweeping up glass and wiping up soy sauce. I mopped the kitchen, but the floor's not clean. To get the floor clean, I'm going to have to get on my hands and knees with bleach and a Brillo pad (NOT exaggerating).
I so wish I could hire someone to come and clean the place. It would probably even take a professional a week. It's that nasty. I've done my best, but STBX was home most days and I was at work, then school in the evening. I just couldn't keep up with his messiness. It's so overwhelming now to try and clean this up, but at least he's not here ruining it as I go.
Sorry so long, this has just been such an overwhelming day.
Can I have a hug?
