OK so I know it sounds stupid but it's really bothering me! Last night my DH asked me what I was going to make for dinner. I told him chicken & broccoli casserole with rice. His response was "I hate that. Why can't you ever make a filling dinner with meat and some sides not all these one dish things.". OMG that made me so mad!! First of all b/c I've made this dish several times over the course of our marriage and he's never complained. Second b/c it's been the same complaint the past couple of months. About once a week there is something I make that he says he hates and that I should know he hates that. He thinks that every meal should be something fatty, fried, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc. I've been dieting since January and have lost a ton of weight and I try to make food that is not only good for my diet but everyone else likes. At least once a week I'll make something for him and my son and not eat just because I know they like it. I'll just make something for myself on the side. So anyway after he made that comment I got mad and he could tell so he went in the room. When I told him dinner was ready he was all "Thanks baby. I really appreciate it, etc. Are you mad?" So I let him know yes, I am mad b/c I bust my ass working all week, picking up the kids afterwards, cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc. You NEVER make dinner. When I go grocery shopping I always ask you what you want me to make for dinner and the response is "Whatever you wanna make honey" but then you bitch about what I make! Furthermore, if your Mom had made it you would eat it no problem. (His Mom is where I got the idea from!).
Anyway after I said that last night we didn't really talk to each other. I went for a walk with the kids, did their bath and bedtime routine, etc. This morning he wakes up in a pissy mood. He asks me if I'm still mad and at that point, no I wasn't. I was over it. Oh but he's mad. What did he hear out of all of that last night? I mentioned his Mom. Why do I have to drag his Mom into this and would I please not bring her into any argument. REALLY?? All I said was that you'd eat it because you DO eat ANYTHING your Mom makes regardless of what it is. I love his Mom and we're close. I'm not dissing her. So yeah. I guess all I said about how he never cooks, gives his opinion on what he wants, etc went right over his head. Now I'm not over it anymore and want to call him and give him a piece of my mind but I know it won't do any good. I don't like arguing either.
Should I keep it going or just back off? I mean, him saying he doesn't like something isn't that big of a deal really, but when it's been several things lately, things that I have always made, it just pisses me off. Like he's just trying to find a reason to be an a-hole. I'd tell him fine, I'm not cooking anymore but I have our son that I have to feed. I guess it just really burns me up that I do so much, cooking on top of it, NEVER ask for his help or bitch that he doesn't do anything. But yet he has he balls to complain about what I do, you know?
Sorry for the long post. I think I just needed to get it out. LOL.
