I'm curious about what others do.

Does your responsibility end at the children and basic household duties such as keeping it ckean? Does it extend to outdoor activities such as the lawn maintenance or if you live north shoveling snow or raking leaves? Do you handle all of the shopping? Is there serious landscaping or gardening?

Does your husbands responsibilities end at making the money?

Do you get bored of it? Or do you volunteer or deal with other adults in some fashion?

My husband makes money and that's all I expect of him! I have a very good education and could be making a lot of money but choose to stay home! He pays for everything and anything I want and in return I do everything at home! Although I do pay a landscaper to do the lawn!

My dh makes the money, helps inside the house, and takes care of the outside stuff. The only thing he doesn't do is cook. Only because he doesn't do it very well.

As of yesterday I am a kept woman for the next few months. I will spend my time getting manicures, pedicures, waxed and threaded, facials and massages. I will cook if I want or we will go out to eat. All cleaning an maintenance will be done by appropriate staff. Haha

My son mows the lawn, but I work outside often. I care about the lawn and I have my gardens. My husband doesn't really care. Basic picking up and cleaning up around the outside is the kids job. I do handle all of the shopping, paying of bills, cleaning and managing the house, cooking the meals.

I am responsible for the kids and when DH gets home he helps. I don't expect it in fact many times I am telling him to relax, but he loves it. I do all the cooking, cleaning, run errands, shopping, pay bills, and clean the pool. DH works, mows, and weedeats.

I am a wahm some parts of the year and other parts of the year I work in the evenings, opposite DH. So, we split all chores, except mowing the lawn (that is all him). Some weeks he chips in more and some weeks I do. We work as a team for all things at home. I am both blessed and cursed to have a DH that is borderline OCD. He actually keeps up with some things quicker than I do. But he also gets frustrated when I don't do things the same way as him.

That irritates me to no end. I'll clean it then he starts tossing his clothes riggt back on this chair. If I don't ckean it for awhile he will catch an attitude about it. However to be fair every now and again he will do it himself. Nothing I can count on tho.

Quoting soy_latte:

MmmHmm



He simply doesn't CARE if it ever gets cleaned. I'm free to just leave it if I want.




Quoting 0Kit0:

If he makes a mess like toss his clothes somewhere they shouldn't be or randomly eats something and puts the dishes in the sink, is it expected that you just clean it?





Quoting soy_latte:

I do everything at the house - inside, outside, meals, bills, kids, etc.

I handle all cooking, shopping, house work, home school 2nd adn 4th grade boys, and work 45 hours at my full time wahm job.

My husband is a full time student, takes care of the yard work, and helps with the kids when I need it.

In one month he will be done with school!!!! And be working right away....I will then cut back to about 35 hours a week at work.

 I am going to spend the summer in India with my husband.  My daughter is going to my mother's in MN. It's not ideal but I choose to look at the positives.  haha
