I wish I didnt have to say this (and I like DH most of the time btw), but Thank God it's Monday!
When he is here, I feel like the work I have to do is so much harder than it is.
There is some houswork that can be put off on the weekend, but not the cooking, dishes, and laundry.
I feel like when he is here, he creates more of a mess and confusion to the mix. It also seems harder to cook and do housework when he is around than when I have all 3 kids by myself.
He likes to lounge around, listen to music, watch football........
I dont like to sit around anyway, so I'm not jealous about that, but it just irritates me while I'm working.
He throws little comments in about how I should leave the laundry till Monday. He sees that every night from a family of 5 that the basket is full up to the top. He just says it to give himself a free pass on guilt. He thinks that it's my choice if I keep working all weekend. He says I choose to cook and clean up and do laundry. I've asked him how he thinks everyone will eat? How he thinks we wont get ants or have clean dishes when we need them if no one does them.
His answer is to order out. Order out 3 meals a day for 2 days in a row?????? It really annoys me.
It's not like he is not a hard worker, he just feels that I really should leave it all till the weekend is over. Ive told him time and time again that it's not possible because as it is I still spend all day Monday doing all the other stuff that I let go.
He'll do what ever I specifically ask him to do (with a groan). He just wont take the initiative to make things a little easier for me and I guess that's what bothers me. He is getting better as we are married longer, but man, it's a slow process. I feel like I have another kid. A giant, hungry, whining, opinionated kid sometimes!
When Friday comes I say TGIF, because I miss him and look forward to being with him on the weekend.
When Monday comes I say TGIM, so I can clean up the wreck of the house from the kids all weekend in peace with out him on the couch!
As I type, I am literally surrounded by EVERY room in this house having not much floor space.
Off to tackle that. No MDC for me today till I can see floor again.
