DH Upset I Cleaned SS's Old Room
DH came home from work a little bit ago and is bummed I cleaned SS18's old room. It's still not done - tons of dust & filthy floors, more clothes to store & other clothes to donate, etc. DH doesn't like it that I unhooked the xbox and took all the gaming posters down.
All yesterday DH was lovey-dovey wanting to be all romantic, but honestly I avoided him because baby-talk is a turn-off and I also felt like DH is giving SS18 the message he's gonna slide back into living here. DH couldn't even get SS18 to pay $20 toward his own phone bill by the 15th but I'm supposed to believe SS will be paying car insurance on time & paying his own gas regularly by January? I'm aware that the only way SS will get licensed, insured, and enrolled is if DH keeps pushing him.
So I am avoiding DH. He can he upset about little SS18's old room being taken apart & cleaned out, and he can keep trying to tell me that SS is planning to enroll in CC Spring 2019 and live here, but I don't see that happening- he can't even get SS to clean his room. Maybe DH is upset with me because the clean room is a reminder of how he & SS failed. DH already held like four "room-cleaning" sessions eith SS in the past two weeks, where SS basically did some laundry and re-hung the crossbow on the hook. The hook I took down today because the crossbow is not a theme in my guest bedroom.
SS's BM gave him this big long wooden staff or rod, intricately carved with a serpent-head on one end (like a cane handle, but this stick is way too long to be a cane), a few years ago. It creeped me out but SS stuck it in the corner of his room & it lived there until today, gathering dust. At first, I put it outside, thinking I'd take a walk & leave it somewhere in the trees/weeds near our house. But then, I put it in the garage because I don't want any heat from DH or SS in the off-chance SS will miss the staff and ask about it. It looks menacing though, and I would like to break the staff up and burn it in my fire pit.
DH can sulk all he wants to. I am avoiding him. He can sulk about man-baby SS18's still-filthy-but-much-cleaner room alone.
In the meantime, hope all you StepTalkers are having a nice evening!
