Sometimes I don't always feel sorry the women that claim to do it all and never get any help. Fact is: Some of these women don't allow the help since no one can do it the way they like it done. 'It' meaning everything they do around the house.
So its really no wonder no one helps cuz they (the family) would get ragged on or they just know Mom will get it, so why bother? Is that true in some cases?

ROFLMAO while my left eye is twitching.... actually it is itching but that is a whole different issue....
This is the thing... I am not asking for help vacuuming or scrubbing toilets... When I refer to the whole helping out thing... I want the testosterone driven beasts in my house to stop throwing their clothes on the floor. I want them to put the garbage in the can, not on the counter. I want them to put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher, not on top of it. I want them to put the pitcher of Ice Tea back in the fridge instead of leaving it out. I want them to stop treating me like the flippin maid. My little world of indentured servitude would be less like a prison sentence if they would just stop being LAZY.... they all need to get off their butts and pitch in. My 5 year old son is the only one who uses the laundry chute... the others are 16, 17 and 50....

LOL... I pitch a fit daily.... I've tried to ignore it, but then I get a 50 year old reaming me out because his house is a mess... not a pretty sight. I have threatened to leave them all.... I do admit to being a clean freak, although I have loosened up in my old age. I am no longer Monica from Friends... ROFLMAO.... My hubby never helps do anything, he's never watched his own children ~ he considered it babysitting.
I have enacted new regulations: I no longer clean my older sons room that they share, I close the door. The only way anyone is going to get their laundry washed is if they take it down and sort it out. If the kitchen counter is covered with your crap, I cannot cook. If you blow something up in the microwave, you loose the privilege of using it for a week.
That last one should put some fear into my boys...
