I'm really fed up with my husband right now. Sure he works (sometimes 12-16 hours a day) but does that really give him the right to not care and make more work for me?
We have mandatory recycling in our town. No big deal but everything has to be rinsed out. Instead of rinsing out his beer bottles and cans he just throws them in the trash. Then I have to dig them out, rinse and put them in the recycling. At the most he leaves them near the sink (that took 3 weeks of nagging to get him to do that). He refuses to put paper in the recycling bin which is right inside the garage (door is in the kitchen). He throws it in the trash.
he refuses to put his dirty clothes in the hamper, just tosses them anywhere including in my clean clothes. He won't lift the toilet seat (pees all over it and the floor and leaves it). Won't flush. Won't put his dirty dishes in the dishwasher (puts them in my clean sink). I'm so tired of it.

My husband does help, as do my kids. Maybe you need to make your own vacation and go on strike! As for the things that get left out I'd confiscate those and let them earn them back by doing extra chores. At 7 or 8 my oldest daughter was terrible about leaving out dirty clothes or stashing them, so I confiscated all her clothes except for one outfit that she didn't like that much and then I taught her how to wash clothes. She got tired of wearing the same thing everyday and did some extra chores to earn back her clothes. I'm not sure it would work on younger kids, but my husband once took a picture of an unflushed toilet and told my daughter he was going to post it on the internet or take it to school to show her friends and that put a stop to unflushed toilets. GL! I hope you did get a break.
