When osd and family come over for a visit they usually stay a couple days. By the time they leave I am worn out, grouchy, and sooo ready for them to be gone.
Osd NEVER makes a bed. Back when she was in college she would come over and many times would bring a friend or two. I would be aggravated that she would show up to a clean room with a nicely made bed and leave a messed up bed for me to take care of. I complained to my dh and he advised her it would be nice to make the bed when she leaves. The next time she came after the conversation with dh, she left a sloppy made bed and had the nerve to call her dad and ask if the way she left the room was up to his expectations. I told dh that her statement/question was a poke at me since he NEVER expected her to pick up after herself or to make the bed. She also learned that I usually wash the sheets anytime someone leaves after a visit (may not be the same day but I do wash them) and so then made that her excuse to NOT make the bed.
Now, osd is married with three kids and she never makes her bed or the beds the kids sleep in, nor does she have the kids pick up all the toys they have scattered all over the play room and out into our living room.
They also bring their big hunting dog with them. I have a dog pen in our back yard that I put my dog in when we leave the house or when we have company, otherwise my dog is inside. Now because their dog is in the pen I either put my dog in our garage or let him run in our yard (which is not fenced).
The last time they came my osd's husband is taking their things from our house to their van & he yells at my dog for being in his way and they leave the house a mess as usual.
Now for the kicker. My dh & I drive 2 hours to go to SGS4's birthday party. I take my 2 year old gs with us. There are a few toys in the living room that other kids have brought out and then my 2 year old gs brings some toys into their living room and osd says that it is fine as long as we put them back before we leave. I totally ignored her statement but found it incredible that she would even remotely say such.
I just wanted to rant. Thanks for listening.
