It's now only 3 weeks till our house goes on the market and I'm really starting to panic about making the deadline. My state of mind is not helped by Number One Son's pig-headed selfishness. So far, he has done exactly nothing to help.
His room is a pigsty and my constant requests to sort the crap he doesn't need from the stuff he wants to keep have fallen on deaf ears. He has also constantly moaned and complained about how incovenient this whole moving thing is to HIM, and how he doesn't want to live in a rented house while we build, and how he'll be getting close to exams while this place is on the market and having to leave so that the agents can bring prospective buyers through is REALLY going to make his life hell and blah-de-blah-blah.
SO.... I yelled at him last night that he doesn't have to move with us - he can just stay here and we'll happily go without him. I'm sure we can run an ad something like this: Cosy family home in great location with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, renovated kitchen, lovely outdoor entertaining area, ducted heating and cooling, 2 sheds and lock-up carport. Comes complete with lazy, smelly teenager with bad attitude who sleeps all day and refuses to do any chores.
Yeah, THAT should add some value to the place.
