Just been racing around the house doing various jobs and I thought to myself I'm the one who does the vacuuming, mopping, tidying, cleaning bathroom and toilet, doing all the washing putting away folding etc, paperwork, bed making, dishes, cooking and meal planning.
DH looks after the garden. He will do the dishes if I huff and puff and make a scene.
Am I alone?

Re: Lazy DH
Dp mops and hangs out all clothes and folds up his and ds's.
I cook, wash clothes, wash dishes, do all night get ups with ds, tidy up, vacuum, mow, weed etc
Also all pet care is my job as he 'didnt want' the pets we have.

Re: Lazy DH
Nope, same here. I do and organise everything!
Except i dont think my DH is lazy as he works fulltime, travels 2 hours a day to and from work while im a sahm to our daughter.
Guess it depends on your situation. Do you both work? If so, yeh he is being pretty slack!

My DF is a clean freak fortunately, I don't ever have to ask for help with anything. He even cleans my car once a week lol.
Pretty sure he's in the minority though!

I basically do everything at home. I get huffs and puffs. It does bug me.

Yeah pretty much the same. He can sometimes be amazing and bring me food and hang out washing and stuff when I can't get away from constantly nursing my newbie, but not that often. Men suck lol! I could never just walk past a mess or job that clearly needs doing and leave it!

I'm a stay at home mum so I do all the indoor chores (including the laundry, even though it gets hung outside lol). Hubby works and mows the lawn so I think it works out pretty even

Lmao tonight I made dinner and did the absolute PILE of dishes while I was waiting for it to cook.
DH walked in, said "That smells amazing!", grabbed a piece of cheese out of the fridge and walked out, all while I was doing the dishes and running out of rack space.
If I'd grumped about him doing that, it would have been a major production because he KNEW he should be helping me. Instead I just sucked it up and let it go. He's doing ALL the work tomorrow and if he leaves a mess for me to clean in the kitchen then he'll hear about it! Lol.
