Doing anything around the house. Since I've been pregnant, my desire/motivation to do housework is nonexistent, and my house is an absolute mess. It makes me kind of mad because my husband and I both work outside the home, but I was the only one cleaning the bathrooms and the floors and the kitchen and doing laundry.. Now, I do what I can when I can, and he does what he feels like whenever.
I used to be the only one doing everything and it ticked me off so much, but DH never saw the big deal. Then he was laid off and out of work for 7 months. It didn't take him long to realize just how much I did around here and even though he's back at work he still helps out. He mostly does the kitchen and I'm all for it. I hate cleaning the kitchen. Definitely a quality I like about him.
You are not alone! I think that is pretty common...same here...but when he does decide to clean up, and u leave a dish in the sink without rinsing, boy will everyone hear about it! Uughh! *end rant*
The one day a month he suddenly feels the motivation to get a few things done around the house, then Lord help you better be in cleaning mode too or it's suddenly you who is sitting around doing nothing I mean...really?!?!? We had that very rare moment today in this household. Can you tell? He did 1 load of laundry (but didn't fold it) and fixed a lamp cord. You'd think he just built the whole house
I'm pretty much the only one who does anything in the house, and there are four other adults that COULD do things, but don't. So, it's not just DH and my boys I clean up after ... it's 3 other adults, too. Let's just say I HATE the dishes. lol
Thank you so much to Typical Vampire for my awesome siggie!!
No motivation over here! I do the cleaning and when I feel sick or tired my husband just leaves the mess. Oh boy, but when he does clean, it like I should give him a metal because he cleaned the kitchen! I don't think he has mopped or swept the floor ever! Men.......lol
