My Darling Husband is pretty good. He picks up after himself and he’s tidier than I am. But I do feel your pain with housework. I feel like it would take me a full 8 hours to clean the house from top to bottom. And who wants to spend the weekend doing that?

That’s more than what my Darling Husband does! I have to remind him a million times and repeat myself over n’ over to get any work done. He will do it then. But man, it’s annoying!

Our solution: housekeeper, twice a month. Also comes from SO’s pocket, technically.
Saved us so, so many fights. And I haven’t scrubbed the toilet in years.

Ah! This is such perfect timing! Fiance is the only guy I’ve ever lived with and I never knew how much of a clean freak I actually was until I saw how he just leaves his crap everywhere! Our apartment is about 500 sq ft so there is no room for things just to be wherever! I will clean up and then he’ll come home and throw his coat all over the chair, throw receipts and random garbage on the coffee table.. Today his pants were under the coffee table!

THank you for comiserating with me ladies. I am not the neatest person by a long shot but Darling Husband is worse. We are getting there. I want to get good habits going while we are living in a 600 sf apartment so that when wemove to a 2000 sf house I won’t be responsible for all of it.
My husband takes care of the dishes 90% of the time because I do the majority of the cooking. He doesn’t mind cooking at all, just the few meals he has made since we got married haven’t been very successful. He needs to learn the magic of pinterest 😉
Our son (if we have one) will know how to scrub a toilet and cook a meal. My mom taught both my brother and I how to do that stuff.
It might be different if we had a yard and a house of our own to take care of (though I am also very handy) but as it is, we need to share the indoor duties. Occasionally, he will offer to help and he will always do it if I ask him to but frequently he will sit watching TV whilst I’m in the kitchen washing dishes and scrubbing counters and all that.
I think housebreaking a puppy would be simpler. And quicker 😉
