So my SIL and her bf of 4 years moved in with us a few weeks ago and I have enjoyed the company/extra help with cleaning and watching the baby while I cook. It felt good to not be alone everyday too.
But now they are breaking up and she is moving back. So it will go back to same old as it was before. I don't like having this big house...its alt to take care of...and my fiance freaks if everything isn't organized. I also feel bad that we can't afford to pay my Dad the full mortgage so having roommates would helped alt ( oonce they got a job)
We also have 3 dogs that I don't want either. Well I want to put two inside and give the boxer away to a loving home. They mark in the house and I was cloth diapering the chihuahua and letting him be inside but he is too attached to Lucy ( my pitbull mix) so he is back outside again. Honestly they don't get any attention really and thats what makes me feel so horrible about keeping them. I just have too much stress right now...my relationship problems, the house, the teething baby, money, and the dogs.and somehow writing this out feels better..
Have you talked to SO about rehoming the pets so that they can go to a family that would be a better fit? Or getting some roommates? We had a much larger house than the condo we have now and I always felt overwhelmed with keeping it clean so we moved. Its been much better.
Hopefully LO feels better soon with the teething so thats one less thing that you're having to deal with.
I'm not sure if you've already brought any of this up to your SO but he may appreciate you talking to him about how you're feeling.

Yes but he wants to keep them because he feels bad....he says its a life commitment. We didn't plan our son tho and we just don't have the time for their needs besides feeding them and letting them out. Now that we moved we have a tiny yard and I feel so bad for them .
My SO is really stressed too...mainly from work. I need to catch him on a good day I guess. I would like room mates but hesitant at the same time. Its hard to know if it would be creating a worse situation Kwim?
