I thought I had rounded up all my hubby's clothes to wash.  I start washing them, to only come back in our to to straighten up the bed and put his aquarium filter box up (just got a new filter for his aquarium yesterday, so he wants to hold onto the box, just in case there is a problem).  So, when I grab the box, his pj's and a few shirts are in the box, including 1 work shirt.  He has a laundry basket for his clothes, 1 for mine and 1 for our dd, so there is no excuses.  I hate thinking I have all the laundry washed and then this happens.

don't wash them throw them back in the box. When he runs out of shit tell him that when he respects you enough to put his dirty clothes in the basket you'll be happy to wash them.

Our issue is socks. He hides his dirty socks to keep my son from wearing them.

LOL, I'm absent-minded. When I do the laundry, I have to look all over the house 'cause who knows where I might of left something.

dont do the stuff thats not int eh basket.  i used to drive myself bananas trying to pick up after DH.  i would end up screaming at him.  then one day it dawned on me that I am here to pick up and look after my kids, not my husband.  So now I don't pick up his messes.  I'll leave them right where he left them.  If they bother me too much I'll push them off to a corner.  If his clothes aren't in the hamper, im not washing them.  I don't put his clothes away for him.  I don't pick up his dishes.  I don't keep track of his shit.  That old me is long gone and its never coming back

I wouldn't have stopped all of this shit had he appreciated my efforts and at least said thanks every once in a hwile.  instead I constantly heard that I didnt do enough or that I was good enough.  took me 4 years but I finally decided that its not worth the struggle.  he can live in his own mess. 

Sometimes he says that he wishes Id do those things for him again.  I always remind him of the 4 years I just wished he would appreciate me contributions and how i got demeaned instead.
