going on a housework strike?? I swear with certain things like laundry and dishes I put them off as long as I can sometimes just to see if someone else (like Jon LOL) will do them. I know he works and I stay home but if I start going to school here soon like I want then he is going to have to share in the housework again. Heck he still hasnt even made the recycling run he needs to do or gotten rid of Krystles old mattress.


Calgon TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!!

I'm on strike, well, I just dont feel like doing it. It is piling up, and will not get done until I get to it either. Oh well. I'm just too unmotivated to do anything. I dont even want to eat.

No. It just causes me more grief & stress.
Sure I would like more help, but I tend to actually ask for it rather than let it pile up and just have an even larger mountain of stuff to do when no one else takes the initiave

Although, sometimes even asking does no good. I only have classes on Tuesday nights. I asked dh to just wash the dinner dishes (since I cooked it, served it then wouldn't be home until 9:30pm). Nope. He hasn't done it once.
But when I was sick he did the dishes twice. I don't get it.

He WILL be doing something next semester. I have classes three nights a week as opposed to just one now.

Nope not high but sometimes I would like to be LMAO... we really did have things split pretty well between us back when I was working, we had our own set chorse. His laundry and garbage, mine cooking and dishes and we split the other stuff like floors, windows etc. If I go to school it is going to have to go back to that. Of course if we don't make it and end up splitting up then I will be SOL, but still I will expect him to clean up after himself if he watches the kids while I am at school.

I'm with Heidi on this one. Randy won't do anything unless I ask, plead, beg and scream at him.

And even then, he does it with a pout and a ^ugh^.

Lately I've been on a cleaning strike - too tired, no motivation and too much to be done!

I hate doing the dishes...and we have a dishwasher! I can't stand seeing leftover food in the sink and stuck to plates. I will let those pile up! Luckily DH does them with no complaints...just need to figure out how to get him to keep doing it once baby arrives and things calm down!

I went on strike once. He had no clean clothes to go to work. He does his part now. I am ot a maid. You can put your clothes into the hamper and you can load a dishwasher. And the horror of it all you can occasionaly do a load of laundry.

DH doesn't do much housework around here unless I specifically ask either. As for going on strike, I don't know if you could call it that, I'm just lacking energy and motivation for cleaning right now. The dishes and laundry seem to stay caught up, but not general cleaning
