I have become Cinderella
I don't know if I'm a boomer. I'm 44. My mother-in-law had a stroke. Fairly minor, but she's trying to stay in her own home alone.
I have prepped her house, cooked her meals, I get her paper for her every day. I cleaned her house top to bottom before she came home.
Her daughter won't help me. I can't get her to do her own mother's laundry once a week. I'm doing laundry for my two boys (second and fifth grade) and a husband, and now I'm working in hers too.
I don't know why her daughter won't visit long enough to do some freaking laundry. Today's visit was one hour long and she brought her two dogs and let them lay all over the furniture, so tomorrow I will make the brunch early and go over there and clean before the therapist comes.
God did not put me here to be Cinderella for my sister-in-law. I'm having real anger issues with this. She doesn't call to check on her and won't answer texts about her mother anymore. She just wants to live her life and not be affected.
She has no children, just dogs, only works part time, and can't find the time to drive 40 minutes and spend time with her mother and do some stupid laundry.
Why does she have to bring the stupid dogs? I guess my new name is Cinderella. I bet she and the boyfriend are having a real laugh about it.
