Yesterday, a storm was brewing. I get tired of spending my weekends bustling around taking care of household things while DH putters the day away on the computer. Just before dinner, he declared "I'm bored" and I snapped.
I have proposed that, after we return from this weekend's trip, we keep track of the chores we're doing and see what we can do to even things up. He keeps telling me that he'll help if I'll just tell him what needs to be done. Am I the only one who notices when the bathrooms are dirty or realizes that we're out of clean clothes? I did 7 loads of laundry yesterday and folded all but the last load because by that point I was angry so I left a few items for him to fold himself.
I pointed out to him that it's not helpful to me if he says he'll do something and it never gets done. I've tried to be better about not expecting him to jump right to it on my timetable but his philosophy appears to be "put it off until it no longer needs to be done or DW gets around to it...and it no longer needs done". >:-/
I also don't think he's counting things like feeding the dogs because it doesn't take much time but someone has to do it and 9 1/2 times out of 10, it's me!
Just needed to vent some.
