I am starting to feel the effects of Sabrina and Mikey being here. *sigh*

I love them dearly and will of course never utter this to them. But I want my house back. I want our spare room back for our school room. We haven't done much of school since we made the move. My kids just need a space that is only for school. We can open and enter and close and move on. It was our special place. And I want to cry. The kids room is so CRAZY. I can hardly teach in it, I can only imagine how they are learning.

Sabrina came home today and said I needed to watch Mikey so she could go to the doctor. Well, I have things I needed to do. School has come to a hault and I feel stressed because my whole day is scratched now. She was supposed to have a pal go with her to the appointment to watch Mikey. She was like are you busy? YEAH! I homeschool my kids, I have places to go! And it is hard to watch other peoples kids. Ya know? But she acted as if I was putting her out. Saying well I guess I could take him with me. URGH! So I let him stay. I want to cry.

I haven't had a shower...which I was going to do after lunch. And now I can't.

Their stuff is everywhere in my home! I hate it!

I don't want to sound mean...but I am so upset about it.

I miss quiet evening and dinners with just my men. I miss so much.

She had one of her friends here at 10pm one night. And I was tired and wanted to be in my house. I don't have people over all the time. And when they are here...it is because I invited them.

And I have to hear all about the scum of the earth husband of hers. It drives me insane! He is such trash. I can't stand him. And she has allowed him to make it harder on her. I am like GET OVER HIM and MOVE ON!

She works so hard...she is in school and work now.

She wants me to watch Mikey...I can't!

I foresaw all of this. I knew what it all meant and would be. I am just feeling it. They are just always here! I need a break!

Oh and he was at daycare...but she took him out and brought him here????? WHY?????

It's got to be so hard to share your home like that.

So... sorry. Is she in the process of getting a divorce? Could she apply for public housing? Daycare assistance? It would take awhile but you would know a time line. if it's any consolation I know how you feel my CIL and SIL are finally moving out after 5 years they doubled the expected stay. We had to tell them that they had to leave after this summer to get them moving We gave them 8 months notice.

Oh, Chelita, I'm so sorry that this is stressing you out so much! You are so sweet to allow them to be in your home, it seems too bad that things are going sour so quickly. Do you know how long they're planning on staying?

I've thought from the beginning that you were a saint for taking them on. Its always hard to live with other people, but dang! Sounds like they are really pushing it with you! You are way too nice! I hope things settle down for you soon and she gets her stuff together.

I can understand how you're feeling. It's hard having 2 families in 1 home. As SAHMs, our home is our domain. It's hard to share that with another woman. Before we had kids, we had my sister & BIL with their 3 kids live with us for a time. I agree it's time for a heart to heart and get things out in the open before there is too much ill feelings & resentment. It will be hard, but a true friendship can withstand it. Go to God first and let Him lead your heart & words.

Oh friend . How do you get yourself into these things? You are just so kind and giving, but you are at your wits end! Has she said how long she plans on staying? What does hubby say about all of this? How does he feel about them being there all the time!
Seriously, if some days you just need to get away, my door is always open.
We have one more week of school....after that, we are going to get our calenders and mark down a date for you three to come play...soon!!! The pool is finally ready...now if it will just get warm again.
