    My hubby barely works or helps around the house. It can be very frustrating! Last night I was doing clothes washing, dishes, cooking dinner etc and kept complaining that my back etc was sore ... and nothing!! Subtle hints do not work, I expect him to just help me when I am doing stuff without being asked, and he expects me to ask! Need to start asking I think

I dont see why he should have to work long hours and come home and b expected to work more....he does ocassionaly help with dinner etc if i ask but usually he works and i take care of everything else. Works for us Plus im much better at it than him

    I don't know when you have time to watch a movie during the day. I certainly don't!

    I'm a full time Uni student and hubby works as a contractor for the mines. So we both have a lot of work to keep on top of. But house work is something we both do. If its needing done we do it. Instead of snuggling and watching tv a night time, we chat and do the folding etc. lol. Not my idea of a great time but it keeps my house clean

    dh is gone 7am to 6pm weekdays, and most nights after the kids are in bed he does a couple of hours on renos. In the evenings its all hands on deck so we do the dishes together and he usually baths the girls. And when i'm out on a Wed night he often clears the ironing too. I don't want him to do any more than that, i actually wish he would sit down and rest but that's not his way. So if i really have to keep on top of the housework otherwise he'll try to do it on top of everything else.

    I work 3 days a week. When I'm at work, I can:

    * get 15 minutes peace in the car to listen to whatever I want after dropping the kids off

    * go to the toilet without being interrupted

    * have two 25 minute breaks where I can eat in peace and relax

    * finish a conversation with friends without worrying about the kids

    At home, I don't think I've ever attempted to watch a movie while my kids are with me. I think it's slack. And when at home with kids or at a friend's, it's not a break. You still have to check on the kids, you lose track of conversations, never fully relax.

    only if i ask. a lot, like i have asked him to move all of his teaching resources off the dinning room table, every afternoon last week. and he didnt do it until yesterday he came home and saw i wasnt feel well. asked if i was ok and i snapped "ID BE BETTER IF YOUR TEACHING CRAP WAS OFF MY TABLE!!!!!!" lol oops. (hormones? *buffs otherwise immaculate halo*) he went and did it.

    if i say on saturday "ok guys, clean up time, spring clean!!!" he will get up and help, but he wont do anything unless asked. he is a poobum like that.
