  • Are you able to take a little mini vacation for a weekend? Maybe even just staying at a friends house? Doing something fun? Than the things that really aren't a big deal, like a lightbulb, will not seem so big if you come home even a little refreshed. How much does your DH work? If he's not, than there's absolutely no excuse for it.
    I know how you feel sometimes. Work 40 hrs., the house is a mess, dr appts, etc. You don't realize it until one day you just feel like you were hit by a truck out of nowhere.

  • get an allen wrench and manually fix the garbage dis from the bottom, change the lightbulb and who washes garbage cans? I can't believe you are stressing over this. Think of the single moms who have to do all of this and more and you hit a mailbox and think it's bc you are overworked for working full time and taking care of kids? OMG, this is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. Just take care of crap, get the kids to bed earlier and you go to bed earlier. Tell hubby you will call a professional handyman in and he can pay for it if he doesn't cut the crap. Or better yet, withhold sex from him until he obeys all your commands. Geez, I don't believe this ...all over a light bulb, dirty garbage cans (imagine that, dirty GARBAGE cans) and a stuck garbage d. LOL

  • Its is all to real to realize your are drained and under appreciated over something like that!!
    I didnt realize it until I had a panic attach that felt like a heart attach after a death in the familly.
    take a break and dont stress over His Things He may realize it when you relax- May a few double meals and freeze then for next week every bit counts- Good Luck

  • You know what.... it is not all over garbage cans and why buy new ones at $30 dollars a pop when i can clean them out,nothing a little soap and water wont take care of. it is just everything coming home from work and having a pile of dishes in the sink and a trash overflowing a little bit of everything rolled into one,it is just like having a 3rd child.I cant believe how mean some of you ppl can be I was always taught if you dont have anything nice today dont say anthing!!!And to you other two thankyou verymuch i am glad to see i am not alone i think.I appreciate all your advice.I will try and do those things myself sometimes I am just afraid i will screw things up worse than they already are.It is just upsetting and frustrating that he sits on the computer and watches t.v. when i do my share and more.
