Its 5 weeks until my father in laws apartment is ready. I'm counting the days until he's out! He however is finding every excuse under the sun now to NOT move out of our home.
The closer it gets to him moving out, the more he has to say about why he doesn't want to and shouldn't leave.
I told hubby it's him or me! I'm tired of his demands! He has turned my life and my home upside down!
Me and hubby were fighting so bad that we were talking about divorce! I smoke like a train now! Im tired of ALL the demands! Im tired of his old west way of thinking “The woman should cater to and treat the men like kings, after all your JUST the woman” grrrrrrr My husband was never demanding and never seen things that way BUT he sees his dad getting away with it so now hes starting to be like his dad. Im sick of it! The old man needs to get out!
He is so used to being catered to: meals made, (I hate having to knock on “his” door to let him know foods ready. I feel like some peasant serving the king) we buy him and make him all the foods he wants, he wakes up in the morning and his breakfast and coffee is ready, his lunch is made for him, his dinner is made for him, (He wants dinner on the table at 6:00 because he doesnt like to eat “late”)
(I run to my room when he eats because he smacks his food and will talk while hes eating while he is spitting food everywhere. I can barely understand him WITHOUT food in his mouth! If hes eating I dont understand a word he says!) we make his doctors appointments, we drive him to the doctor, I take care of his meds, he doesnt have bills to worry about, everything is done for him here!
Why would he want to move out?
The apt is in an elderly community, its a place that I would live in when I get his age. Its really nice!
But there will be nobody to make his meals or cater to him and he will have to do things on his own and as narcissistic and demanding as he is that to him is completely unacceptable!
How do we convince him that living in his own place will be a good thing?
That he NEEDS to be independent!
And I NEED MY LIFE BACK!
