  • my BF helps me every time i feel like i have a migraine coming on- i get them a lot, weeks on end so i know i'm able to handle things myself.. but when he's around, he practically forces me to sit and relax for the day while he takes care of whatever needs to be done; dishes, cleaning, washing, playing with my DS (isnt his son, just mine). he's amazing... i'm hoping he doesnt change once he becomes DH. lol

  • stay in bed and ignore his ass all day if talking doesnt work. then hell get hungry and cook his own dinner. i have to make everything more dramatic than it is with him because i dont get an ounce of sympathy. so i ignore him when he asks me to get up

  • He ordered food delivery. But, dishes are unwashed from yesterday. I wanna wash them but I'm so dizzy and feel bad.

  • Lol you know what? There are actually times when having a new bf just might make me happy. They treat you better, wants to please you...but that just doesn't fit with my plans right now. Lol

  • I asked him this weekend to help me. Sat he took dd all day so I could lie in bed & sleep. Yesterday I had to take the laundry to the coin laundromat (our washer just broke grrrrr), he kept dd & then ironed his own work clothes when I got back. While I was @ the laundromat he picked up & even did some dishes. It didn't all get done but it'll make it way easier on me today!!!!

  • If I'm sick, chores simply don't get done. DH will feed the our son and make sure the animals are taken care of, but everything else just has to wait until I'm feeling better. Of course, we have a dishwasher and our son is old enough to clean up after himself, so it's not like the other chores can't wait a day or two.
