sometimes I talk to my husband like he's a child. today he "helped" me in the kitchen. my youngest spilled half a can of corn on me and while I was tending to the child and cleaning myself up he "cleaned" up the mess. leaving a handful of kernels on the floor and just wiping most of the juice up with a paper towel. we finished dinner and then the whole household split on me. hubby went back to watching tv and kids ran off to play... and I blew up. I spent I don't even know how much time making a meal that I had to listen to my kids whine about and talk them into eating. got no kind of thanks.... got nasty corn juice all over me... and no one even offers to help clean up?
so I ask my dh to come help and he says to me "well, this is what you get when you eat at home". I was so done by that point I just walked away. Yeah, that's what I get for trying to feed my family a cost effective nutritious home cooked meal. sorry I even tried.
I know I'm gonna get bashed. that's not even the worst part. when I was finally able to get my anger under control I came back to the kitchen and found that my hubby had tried to clean up... but he left everything a complete mess. and I just ripped into him... again. I regret it now because he won't even try next time... but geez, the sink was Disgusting. the sprayer had slimy nasty grease all over it. and I mean All over it. i think my child could have done a better job. Did his mother never teach him how? or does he just not care? does he think a magic fairy comes along and cleans up after him? if you're gonna help could you actually help instead of making a bigger mess?
I'm upset that my family doesn't appreciate the work I put in to keeping the house clean and putt ing food on the table. yes, my husband pays for the food but if it was up to him we'd be eating pizza hut every night. and he doesn't see a problem with that. grrrrr. how do I get this through his thick skull without talking to him like he's 3 yrs old?
