Just trying to figure out if we have an especially high maintenance house! We have 3 kids and I spend so much time trying and failing to keep on top of housework and dp does little in the house but spends hours each weekend mowing, pruning, cleaning pool not to mention at least one trip to bunnings! I'm sure this isn't normal?!? This is our first house. We have lawn, pool, decks all seems to take such time I get no help inside and have to manage housework and 3 kids!! Not sure this is right place for this but I'm ready to move just scared to end up in the same place if I was delusional thinking there was such thing as free time with home ownership lol!!
