- Wedding: September 2011
We are constantly in some state of updating with our house. You know how when you go to change one thing (like carpeting) you realize you have 30 other things (like painting and trim) you should do at the same time…
Well since the weather has finally gotten nice, FI has been working on our unfinished house projects. Of course I love this but the fact is that I’m the only one taking care of the household things like cleaning and laundry…not an easy task when I’m cleaning up after both me and Fiance, plus his two kids and our own baby (that is only 14 weeks old).
I’m starting to get really annoyed and mad because our house is NEVER clean. I can’t even have anyone over because it’s embarrassing. I started doing FlyLady but failed miserably because I’m the only one doing anything…I realized I just can’t do it alone.
Does it sound fair for me to tell FI to take a break from projects to help me with the house cleaning for a weekend? I feel like he’s going to think I’m being silly because he’s obvoiusly doing things that NEED to be done…it’s not like he’s just being lazy or something. My idea is that there needs to be priorities and a clean house should be one of them!
