OT- What would you women think of this? Men's opinions welcome as well!!!
The question is, am I PMSing (overreacting) or do I have a valid point?
This morning, BF was talking about how the house is not 'sanitized'. We have had some bumps in the chore assignments for the kids and lo and behold, NO ONE is cleaning ANYTHING now. We toss out Freedom's lists and say "SCREW THAT" so now Freedom comes home at 2:30 AM to a couch filled with unfolded clothes, clean dishes (that I did) in the drainer AND dirty ones in the sink. A bathroom that I almost don't want to sit on the toilet.
Ok, so I try to look the other way. This is what BF suggested when I was getting upset when things a few months ago were not getting done. That it was ok for dishes to be in the sink over night. Well, for some reason NOW it isn't. Now that he is not making the kids do chores at night. I woke up at 5:30 AM with him this morning, and we started this discussion.
He suggested paying his sister to clean our house. To go through our refrigerator, clean it out of all our old food. To clean what we obviously had NOT cleaned for a while. While I am not against a maid coming in, someone whom you have a professional relationship with, I would have a hard time looking her in the eye knowing that she cleaned my filthy house.
When I brought up the fact that it made me uncomfortable, he came back with, "it would seem to me that a lot of women would love for a guy to say let us hire a maid"
I just see it different. A true maid, professional relationship, sure. His sister has already come into my house and did the dishes since they weren't done once.
So now I spent all day cleaning. Up at 5:30AM too, his kids and mine to school at 8:30 and got back home and started cleaning. I did not get it all done before I had to leave for work at 4:30 PM. I come home for lunch, BF is PLAYING on his computer, says, "man I am tired" This coming from the guy that didn't even make dinner for himself or the kids. He took them to a hamburger joint.
He says he does not expect me to do all the cleaning, but who is gonna do it. He won't make the kids do it, HE won't do it... so who does that leave?
