my husband is on a seasonal layoff and is home all day. We both get up to get the kids off to school and then he watches TV...I go back to bed and sometimes until 1 pm.
He thinks I should just sit and watch TV with him...problem is I find it so brain numbing that I fall alseep...he says it sure is funny how I never fall asleep with the computer but I can with TV and I explain to him that the TV is boring and the internet is not.
He doesn't use computers and would rather watch 15 hours of TV and gets so mad because I won't watch with him..well why watch if I'm just going to fall asleep and if I turn on the computer he sarcastically says " goodbye mom"
meaning I'm with the computer and not him.
I try to explain my feelings but he doesn't see it he only see things the way he wants.

I had that problem with dh he wanted me just sit in the living room with him when I'd rather be on the computer or doing something else. So I got smart, I said I'll watch t.v. with you for however long if you do something with me for however long. So he agreed. I had that boy in the floor with a toothbrush scrubbing floors, on a chair wiping out cabinets, rearranging the cabnets, rearranging furniture, organizing ect. You get the picture, lets just say I can get on the computer anytime I want.

I think it's selfish to a certain extent. He'd rather you watch television with him and fall asleep than to do something you actually find stimulating. No way in hell I could watch that many hours of television. I however have to pry myself from the internet, lol. Maybe dividing some time inbetween the 2? Even if you fall asleep at least you can say you compromised.
