    @DaneLady:  My husband left me a stack of dishes (how does one person create a stack of dishes in such a short time?) right by the dishwasher. I thought he might take the extra step and load the dishwasher, but that is a LOT to ask. 

    Maybe I need therapy, too, lol.

    @DaneLady:  My husband is normally very thoughtful, too. I’m sure I do things that annoy him as well so I just sighed, rolled my eyes, and loaded the dishwasher. Men!

    @DaneLady:  I recommend couple’s counseling, ASAP.

    Kidding. Snoopy card counts for something, right?

    My hubby also left me the dirty dishes this morning from last nights baking/wine drinking, so I left them for when he gets home from work!

    @DaneLady:  Clearly he doesn’t think enough of you, and is passive-aggressively telling you he hates you by leaving the dishes, and also he was not ready for kids because he can’t be perfect all the time. Counseling is in order immediately, and if not, you need to leave now.

    JK, but I would definitely make my FI clean them unless he was in a rush or having a bad day (then I would do it for him).

    @DaneLady:  Hey you, guess what, My DH got me the exact same gift for V Day! A pile of dirty dishes and a pile of dirty laundry next to the washing machine with an email saying “can you load the wahing machine, i need pants (underwear)”, not even a Happy Valentines! 

    Oh well. Mean while i have spent the day cooking him a nice beef casserole and have fitted all of the stair gates, cleaned the house for a viewing AND i have to work tonight at the Pub. 

    At least he has booked for me and my mum to have a Spa day tomorrow, so i cant really complain.

    I was super impressed that my Hubs “cleaned” the kitchen the other day while I was at work, and I came home to an empty sink.  Too bad yesterday I realized that he *loaded* the dishwasher but didn’t *run* the dishwasher (and yes, it was full)….duh…so now I went to empty and refill the washer with the new dirty dishes and they’ll just have to sit for another day and wait.  Men are so weird sometimes.
