Blue62 - you'd hate my house

I always wanted to be more "girlie" or more like other women I know. I'm not I'm like most people's husbands, shoes socks and underwear on the floor. Laundry piles insted of hanging up, never make the bed, don't even notice dirty dishes

And my husband CONSTANTLY tells me I don't load the dishwasher the right way

My husband is more likely to make the bed than I am. But to make it easier on BOTH of us, we use a duvet with just the bottom sheet and pillows. Pull the duvet up and it's made. Liz

Duvets cover a multitude of sins, I love mine...

Does it count that my daughter changes her own bed clothes??

OMG! You are living in my house!! Does your husband re-load it or just complain after you've run it that you didn't do it right? If I want to run it with mine reloading I have to do it while he's not home...makes me nuts!

If mine did that, HE would be totally in charge of clean up after every single meal. Liz

Believe me he does. Our deal has always been if I cook you clean up if you cook I clean up....but sometimes I still need to load the diswasher and he just doesn't let me hear the end of it.

HE COMPLAINS AFTER!!! Just like the darn fridge door bars. I am one of those people that just aren't AWARE of stuff - especially the small dirty stuff. And I guess after a week the door bars get sticky??? He complains AFTER wards "The bars are sticky again!!!"

Like hello, just tell me you notice and ask me nicely to clean them - not condemn me after you've become annoyed

Mine will clean something I haven't seen yet and then complain to me....my answer is always the same, "If I had seen it first I would have cleaned it, but thank you for getting it for me." He usually shuts up after that...but he's completely OCD about the dishwasher...when we bought a new one I didn't even go because I knew I'd only get to use it a couple of time a year anyway...LOL

Irish mom!! My friend and I call my husband the "Nice Police" - we remodel the kitchen with new appliances and he'd ***** if it didn't saty "nice"

I didn't even go in there for a year cuz he'd moan about something

Same with the new car!!!

My ex has OCD BAD! Not my husband though - he likes things clean but he is lazy on the couch with the rest of us - it's a good balance.
