Here is the situation in a nut shell. My husband is laid off and has been for almost a year now. I work more hours now to help out and when I come home the place is a MESS!! I tried asking him in a very nice way to help me out which he will ONLY if I ask! But In my opinion I shouldn't have to ask! On my days off I spend all my time cleaning and can never even get close to getting things caught up because how behind it gets. Also my husband is doing a huge remodeling which keeps him busy and I am very grateful but the house is a priority as far as I am concerned.
I am to the point that I almost want to divide up the chores so things are getting done. Any suggestions on how I can suggest this or any other ideas I can try? He claims the kids are a handful which they can be but I still manage to clean while I have them. Please some help!!!

Maybe a chore list would help out. Make it so that you and him both have a job that has to be done everyday and then a job that only needs to be done every few days. Also, how old are your children? My 6 year old helps me clean all the time. She picks up toys, dirty laundry and any trash she might see. She also LOVES to clean anything that doesn't run away from her. There is nothing wrong with asking him or your children for help. You said he helps if you ask so that's a good start!!!
