Today is my day off. I have been working 6 days a week. I was excited because I had a list of things I wanted to get done, gardening being one of them. I am so ticked because I have spent all morning and afternoon cleaning. The house is a MESS and I am only about half done. Now I have to start dinner and my son has a game so my day is done. I woke up to a sink full of dishes. Counters and tables dirty, bedrooms trashed, bathroom trashed...and so backed up on laundry etc....
To clear a few things...before I went to work yesterday I cleaned up and did some yard work. The reason I am so mad...when he is the one working and I cleaned the house all day he gets bent out of shape when I wasn't able to get to one room. Am I overreacting and what would you say? I do not want to start a fight but I am brewing a storm!!!

You're completely justified in how you feel and even though you'd prefer to avoid a fight, sometimes it's inevitable. My husband works slightly less than I do so he will help out around the house though I'm borderline OCD when it comes to certain things so I give him a pass on cleaning so long as he occupies the kids so I can clean without interruption. Of course things weren't like that in the beginning, even though his mom made sure all her sons knew how to clean up after themselves and do their own laundry DH though now that he had a wife who could do all those things he'd hav a break which I was fine with until we had kids then it became a lot more to clean and I finally went off on him when I came home to a sink full of dishes, clothes all over the bathroom and another three overflowing laundry baskets of dirty clothes and him complaining he had no clean pants or shirts!
