i work 8-5 monday thru friday and starting in July i will begin my summer session of college, and my df doesn't have to work right now he's being paid to go to school, he is currently taking 1 class this session the is 9-11:30 mon - thru. well when he's not in school he is at home watching my kids for me, which is pretty easy. my daughter is 8 and my son is 5, he plays video games all hte time with my son. yesterday he didn't have to watch them becasue he went fishing with his brother all day. and today i asked him to do simple cleaning around the house; kitchen, empty the dishwasher, pick up the living room, see what's wrong with our vacuum, help the 5 year old pick up his room and tell the 8 yr old to clean her room. he tells me he's tired and he'll get to it after lunch, which in my head means that i will come home from working all day and have to clean myself, just like i do everyday. but me being extremely emotional these past couple days i break into tears and text him letting him know that i do evertyhning for him and the kids, like coming home and cleaning, cooking and doing all their laundry, and that i just don't feel like they appreciate what all i do for them. no response from him. he thinks i'm upset bc he says i'm jealous that i can be at home laying around, and he constantly brings up that he served in the military and now he gets the luxury of not having to work and is making more than me.
Am i getting upset over nothing? or is it only fair that him being home all day, should help keep the house picked up so i'm not stuck stressing out about it when i get home from working all day?
