ok so I do all the cooking cleaning last minute wrapping etc
stay up late waiting for all to drop off to do the santa thing while dh snores
5 am i get ill and visit the poreclain goddess until after 6
so tonite food sounds disgusting to even be near,,and dh comes in and askks what is for dinner
I tell him whatever he and the teen come up with
and when I tell him he is just as capable as me at coming up with
something he says he isn't!!!! and tells me I still have responsibilities!! GRR
and when I say something about 'well you always say the teen needs challenges to which he replies I am just shirking my duties off to him
personally i think since he wants to be a chef this is a good opportunity for him to be creative and dh can kiss my ass!!
he would just bitch when i puked again after being around food!
But doesn't know what to make on his own. So I am trying to learn meal planning, but it is a new habit. I'm happy if I can plan 2 meals a week. It can work really great, because 2 meals usually mean leftovers.
Feel better, and you have every right to be mad. I must say that the stress you went through must be avoided next year! Check out Fly Lady!
Dang - if your hubby were being more reasonable, then (had I known), I would've told all of you to come over to our place, as we have WAY TOO MUCH FOOD (and all very yummy)!!! (Then again, it only would've been good if y'all are carnivores...)
I hope you're feeling better, and that your dh acquires some sensitivity ASAP!
my dh was on the couch the whole 3 days, was as surprised about xmas as the kids, i think he must believe in santa too:P ... but we didnt do dinner. the flu thing is here too and even the pasta i put together didnt get eaten. luckily i havent gotten sick (yet) but just tired. at least the kids are sleeping lots!! poor sweeties...
dh would tell me as he lay on the couch 'i love you'(we have an open concept home and he can see me cooking cleaning etc..), and i made sure to point out to him theres no reason he shouldnt be helping; at least he was appreciative! though it wont matter the next time the mess gets to him...
anyway what a jerk expecting you to fulfill your responsibilities while you're sick! it is not in your job description to do everything. i think a man and any teen could definetly be depended on to figure something out. you are not shirking your DUTIES; the nerve of the guy! what kind of stereotypes is he displaying for your son?? and on christmas day, no less, which should be a family undertaking for some things at least;
ah i can totally empathize! you need to go away for a few days and let them fend for themselves.
