I snapped people

Mega rant, sorry

I snapped. I had one of those moments as a mother where i just snapped.

I just wanted some help putting the washing out.

What i didn't want was the arguing, the whinging and just total asshole behaviour in the communal garden from my DH & DS. I'd be amazed if the people in the next town over didnt hear it.

Usually things just go over my head and i just get on with things. But today, i was embarrassed. I was embarrassed that my neighbours could hear it all. I lost my shit.

I work 3 jobs. I do most of the housework. Who am i kidding. I do it all. I do the school runs. I do the various kids clubs. My Ds has behavioural issues and is being tested for ADHD. Phone calls and teacher meetings with school is now the norm. But i also know when my kid cant help what hes doing and when he's being a brat. My husband has his own business and does all hours. God forbid he put the dishwasher on after dinner or didnt wind DS up when hes sulking.

It's constant. There's always something.

I love my family more than anything and usually I dont care what anyone thinks.

But FFS give me a break. Do i always have to be the bloody grown up. Be normal for one bloody day.

AIBU to feel like this?

I think you know YANBU 😕. What are you going to do about it? What happens when you've spoken to him about it? Does he say he believes you should be doing it all?

Sorry the title was meant to be:
I snapped, people

No people were harmed or snapped

As long as your washing was out the back you'll be fine.

That was no error... you meant what you wrote in the title smile

I hope you felt better afterwards... I hope your DH realises he needs to grow up a little!

I think you were completely justified to snap or snap people (?) We've all been there.
Sometimes I feel like snapping my dh's neck if that makes you feel better.wink

Can you hire a cleaner??

YANBU to snap, but there are certain things, like hanging the washing, that I would never want my DS ( 13) to help with. I'm hyperventilating here at the thought of the mess he would make! He's also not allowed to put his own clothes away or wash up, as I can't cope with slightly dirty dishes in my cupboards or the thought of untidy drawers and wardrobes.

Thanks all

I think i am going to strike and give out some death threats. I had a shower and decided i am going to get dressed, straighten my hair, grab a book and piss off fot the day. They will both be told i want the place spotless by time i get back. Uniforms ready. Shopping done. Homework completed.

DH is actually a nice guy but he can be lazy and selfish. I am not his damn house wife and am sure as hell not the only parent. When i speak to him, he usually does a bit more for a week or so then goes back to his usual habits. I dont like him right now so hes a mega asshole.

DS seems to be picking up these bad habits and i am not having it. He can clean his bloody room when he gets in and take all his crap back to his bedroom.

I have cleaners in to do spring cleans every 3 months, so things like move all furniture, shampoo carpets etc. DS & DH are more than capable to pick up after themselves so should.


Is it too early for wine?

Id wait until you've straightened your hair before you start on the wine. Drunken ghd accidents help no one wine

Sounds like you have a plan, enjoy the book and the wine. We need a book emoticon....
