Dear House Challenge

Today’s Challenge I am taking on, is to write a letter to someone, or something that you will never send out. It could be to a dog, a door, or your vehicle. The option is up to you.

Dear House,

I am the mother of the family that lives inside of you. I am sure you think we are a rebellious bunch that needs to move out. As you don’t like being destroyed. Or enjoy listening to the all the fighting going on. To be honest I don’t like it either.

My teens seem bent on figuring out how who can annoy each other the most. That is a typical teenager behavior.

I am sorry my daughter had one of her episodes and kicked holes in the wall. You would think being a teenager she would be over temper tantrums. When her ADHD is off the wall, she literally flips out and doesn’t know how to calm down. I and many other have tried to teach her. It seems like she doesn’t want to. Like she enjoys being angry. I know she doesn’t. She is a scared little girl afraid she is going to fail at life.

I am sorry my teen son leaves his stinky socks and clothes build up in a stack in his room. Which leaves a nasty odor leaking from his room. I am trying to curtail that. I don’t like it either. As I am OCD about those sort of things.

I am trying to get the rest of the house painted. That way you look good. I need to buy more paint. That way I can finish the living room and start on the kitchen. I need to do the laundry room as well.

First I need to start by removing all the spider webs all over the house. That seems to be a never ending battle. Since it has gotten colder. The big spiders have moved back in.  One day I will clear them all. Next day, it looks like I had not started.

I am sorry I am a bit slow at cleaning and keeping up with things. If I had more help out of the rest of the members of the family. I wouldn’t have such a hard time. Picking up after themselves would help me out in a big way.

I am trying, can you see that?

Yours truly,
The Mother

    1. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.

  3. Gosh, if I wrote a letter to my house, it would be sorry I don't have time to clean. LOL

    1. I love using my imagination in my writings. This challenge was fun.

  4. I would have to write a note to my young self, telling me not to do that....

    1. That would make a great challenge to do. I think it would be interesting to read what one would tell a younger self.
