do you always clean up before going to bed?

I ask this because sometimes I'm too tired but my SO gets so mad at me when I don't clean every night. He says he works all day and is tired but when I worked and he didn't I still had to do all the cooking and cleaning

  • I try to, but it doesn't always happen. My husband never says a word about it 'cause he knows if he makes me angry about it he'll get a really long list of things to do around the house.

  • He'll no....books, bath and early bed trump dishes and picked some nights. Now if the man needed to use the kitchen to make a big breakfast for the family, I might have the kitchen get to go. Full range of options based on my energy and how that day went.

  • not mine. He would look at me like im crazy if i did that. He's so lazy on his days off. doesn't even want to go to the park with the kids and me. Makes me so mad. I get that it's his day off and he wants to relax but being a SAHM I never get a break even on his days off cuz he thinks i can just sit around all day and watch kids play but all SAHM knows thats not true

  • almost every night. if dh got mad at me for not cleaning up at night i'd tell him to do it himself. especially after cooking dinner.

  • It depends. last night I left all my daughters camp out stuff all over the living for her to clean up this morning cause she fell asleep early. She did it with no argument.

  • I have to, I think it would drive me crazy.. i don't super clean before i lay down, but i just make sure everything is put away, dishes clean, floors are swept and vacumed.. things of that sort....

  • I try to but it doesn't always happen. My DD does the dishes the next day after school. That took a lot of getting use to but when I worked during the day it didn't bother me because I wasn't here. LOL. Now that I'm home sometimes I do them at night or in the morning after everyone goes to school.
