I come home this morning after 2 12's in a row and the house is a complete disaster. Let me digress for a moment......Worked last Fri, Sat and Sun 7P-7A then leave for my in-laws on Monday evening (It's a 2 1/2 hour drive). Got home Thursday around 1400 and had to be at work at 1900.....
My husband works evening shift (8 hours, mind you). Do you think that he would notice that the dishes are piled sky high, the suitcase is still unpacked, the bathroom is filthy? HELL NO!!!!!! I didn't get home until 9am this morning since I HAD TO DO THE GROCERY SHOPPING. I ask him what he did all evening. Says he watched a few movies and worked on his guitar. I don't say anything and leave the room . He then proceeds to ask me what's wrong. My exact words were "I'm sick of the F******G house being a wreck!"
We don't have any kids, just the cats (I know, Heather, I know); which he forgets to feed or clean the litterbox half the time.
I think I'm gonna hire a maid. I just can't keep up with it by myself. My husband is very handy and does fix stuff around the house but I do help him. Why do I feel like it's not the other way around?
Suppose I'm tired. But for now, it's back to cleaning toilets.

Wooooweeee, I can relate! I told my hubby yesterday that he better plan on cleaning this weekend, if he wasn't working. He said he was going to work. He's been up since 6am, playing on the computer. Finally, about an hour ago, he said he was going to work. I told him, "thanks for wasting my time". He got pissy about it, but he cleaned the bathroom. I've already cleaned the kitchen, including the fridge and pantry, rearranged the stuff in the cabinets, and dusted our entertainment center, the window cills, a few other things, and cleaned the windows.
I have much more to do. Since we both had WLS in December, I want to bring out our more fitting clothes, and box the baggier ones up to take to next months clothing exchange. With this in mind, I have a lot of laundry to do. I contemplated asking my SIL if she wanted some extra cash. She's like me, everything has it's place, and her apartment is always clean...at least when I'm there. I just feel wrong calling her up and asking. He's getting ready to leave, I KNOW I'd rather go see a movie or some friends. It was fine when I wasn't working...I took on all of the responsibilities around the house. I went back to work in July...I wish the caveman would notice and help me out.
My husband WISHES he had a girlfriend "Playstation"...I said, NOT! I can barely keep him away from playing football on the computer.
