Don't yell at DH, yell at brother! Completely unload on him. Lose your shit. Tell him everything you've said here - about everything you've done vs. everything he's done. How hard it is on you to have Dad stay there vs. how hard it is on him. He does these things because you let him! I'm not trying to be mean, but you've got to stand up for yourself.

In response to a confession. Brother just moved into a new home and they just don’t have a room ready in their 3700 square foot freakin’ house. I didn’t rip him a new one...I hung up on him then yelled at DH on the phone. Now I owe DH an apology, need to think of what to fix for supper, and deal with Dad, who DH tells me is ‘feeling weak.’ I have never in my life wanted so much to jump in the car and drive until I can’t drive one more foot.

In response to a confession. I hope you ripped your brother a new one. I would have absolutely unloaded on him. Why can't dad stay with him?

DD20 that moved across the country decided today to break up with BF of 2 years. He wants to stay here and have a job and get married and probably have kids. And she's not sure -already- if she even wants to come back here. She's just an adventurous spirit. I'm proud of her. But I'm so sad. She might not come back. I thought this might happen.

My brother had ONE job! Arrange for the moving company to move my Dad today. Movers were to arrive at his house at 1 pm. I’ve been at his new place since 12:30. Hooked up his cable and internet, put up a new shower curtain and rugs, and put cleaning products away (I had bought all of it). DH and Dad are at his house waiting on the movers, the apartment manager was wondering why he wasn’t moved in yet....then my brother called. The movers (friends, he said) couldn’t move him today, but they can get on it first thing Friday morning. That means my Dad has to live with us for three days and nights! I’ve got doctor and dentist appointments, have to pick someone up from the airport, and have to take the dog to the groomer. But, yeah, I’ll cook three meals a day and entertain my dad! I’m so angry that all I can do is cry. Oh, and I haven’t eaten in 9 hours and my blood sugar is 79. But yeah, I’ll drive home and get supper started....

In response to a confession. I'm sorry for your DD. Friends are so important at that age, especially since you're moving. The "celebrating on the actual day" reminded me of exdh. Everyone in his family would gather for birthdays, and it would be on a weekend if the birthday fell during the week. He, however, insisted that *our* birthdays be celebrated on the actual day. Problem was, the rest of the family lived within 20 minutes of each other, while we lived almost an hour away, and he didn't get home from work until 7:30. Yet he expected his parents and his siblings & their children (five of them, ranging from 3-12) to drag themselves to our house at 8pm on a weeknight. Then he'd get pissed when not everyone could make it.

In response to a confession. My dad hoards papers, too. Mostly junk mail. Not sure if he hoarded it or just was lazy. I have two aunts who have offered to help me clean up, and I’m sure Dad will want to be there, too. He’s already rented a storage unit for stuff he doesn’t want to let go, but I’ll get in there after we get the house emptied. I’m looking forward to getting him moved today, but I know this isn’t over by any means.

My dad was a hoarder-mostly papers but lots of other assorted junk. He was also urinating in empty bottles and hiding them in the piles of trash, so we did not know until after he passed away. Two bedroom house cost about $10000 to clean out, and that was not a professional, but a young guy who did it on the side.

Dad signed the paperwork, paid first and last month’s rent, and got the key to his new apartment today. Movers are coming tomorrow. He’ll be all moved in, and all that’ll be left is to get his house cleaned out so the reverse mortgage sharks can take it. Sad, but SO ready for this to be over.

In creepy news that makes me want to leave the planet, there have been multiple reports of a man going around to local neighborhoods, trying to lure children into his truck with a mannequin. He has a child sized mannequin that he takes out of his truck and tells kids they can play with it if they go with him. Makes me want to shudder out of my skin. Hope they catch the sicko.
