I adore my BF, that is definitely no secret. There is so much good about him. Shoot, someday in the near future, we hope to get this whole "wedding" thing squared away so we can make things legal. But as much as I love BF, why don't the men in our lives just get it and change themselves to suit our needs?
Innocently whistle and stare up at the ceiling after that comment. Give things a beat.
I've mentioned BF's "eclectic" method for not keeping things at home liveable before and we've have more than one
argument passive aggressive comment conversation before about we both need to pull our weight around the house. But I still can't help but to be angry about the fact that in the world according to me I definitely pull a lot more than is my share at home.
I guess I should have paid more attention when BF and I first started dating. When BF had his own place, the man used a 55-gallon bin for his trash. He kept his clean clothes on top of his dryer and his dirties under the sink in the bathroom. He had marathon cleaning session about once a quarter. The back seat of his car could be neater. He has had the same bath robe for the last 10 years at least.
I won't get into the details of what I do for the home everything versus what BF does the floors - except he doesn't. I've tried the whole not do anything deal and see if the BF catches wind of the mess and starts picking up. Problem with that is when the person you're trying to teach a lesson to has a vastly different idea of what is clean than you do, the deal does not work.
But let's face it, it's unfair for the BF to think that he could ever live up to my OCD expectations on home cleanliness. I can be manic. I like my laundry sorted before washing. I enjoy cooking - prepping food especially. I prefer the couch pillows fluffed and blankets folded. Bed sheets washed weekly and countertops clear and crust-free. Things generally put away in their proper places (yes, I live in a world where things do have their proper places).
How do you get the men in your lives to do anything close to their share of the house chores? Or at least have you ladies found a compromise on chores that works for you?
We're expecting sunny, near 60 degree weather in the SE today, ladies, and after a weekend of chilly wetnes, I felt the uncontrollable urge to
break out my whiter than white legs again! So sadly pale - what would the Jersey Shore crew think ...
