Vent

Explain to me how it is that any non-husband related stuff is MY stuff. Seems to me that boxes of toys to get rid of, dirty clothes from downstairs on the floor to go upstairs, and other assorted baby shit should be BOTH our responsibility. I swear to GOD if he bitches under his breath one more f'ing time about that sort of thing, I'm never going to pick up after OUR children again and we'll see how the house looks then.

This is after doing (and folding) over 6 loads of HIS laundry and having dinner on the table when he walked in the door.

It's because they simply don't care if the house is as clean as we would like. As long as they can see the tv and have a place to sit they are perfectly content.

I'm currently engaged in a battle of "I'm NOT going to clean YOUR shit marks in YOUR toilet". It's been going on for longer than I care to say.

He's a great man. But his bathroom grosses me out and I'm tired of the cleaning strike.

If you figure it out let me know.

My husband claims to be OCD about cleaning, yet never lifts a finger, so I do all the dishes, laundry, sweeping, dusting, you name it. Hubster claims that "If he cleaned as much as he wants he would never do anything else." So he sticks to watching TV and asking me what is for dinner.

I also get my son ready every morning, bring him to daycare every day, pick him up every afternoon, feed him dinner every night, give him his bath, put him to bed every night, and wake up any time he cries at night. Oh... and I'm pregnant again, taking 3 graduate courses, and teach fulltime.

Sorry, my vent is over now.

Your husband, and my husband, seem to be getting their totally wrong information from the same book. I don't have any answers for you, but I can sympathize.

Yep. Unfortunately it seems to be a universal man thing. My husband is the same or worse - and we are South African.

Men. Can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em.

For his own sake, I hope he came around. :)

You are not the only one! I've always been jealous of your husband's remodeling skills, but I guess they don't make up for the lack of household help. Some faults are universal, I think.

Cleaning is the number one argument at our house. Money is second.

OHMYGOD. I hate this. I used to nag and that did nothing, so now I just feel frazzled until my house is clean, which isn't too often these days, because HELLO, I'M BUSY. Current annoyance is that every morning when I get up he's left last nights underwear on the bathroom floor. We have a laundry basket outside the bathroom FOR THIS EXACT PURPOSE. And then he bitches about the lack of sex - WELL MAYBE IF YOU CLEANED UP AFTER YOURSELF I'D HAVE MORE ENERGY, DIPSHIT.

His rationale is that "nobody but us can see it, whats the point?" ARHJGSHGKLASGH!

Yeah, some days I just want to stop doing all of the little things I do and see what happens. But then again, I couldn't do that, because the mess would drive me crazy.
