Dear One Tough Muther,
Over the weekend I took a small get away with some friends. My kids and my husband stayed home for once. I needed this. For some crazy reason I thought some things would have been taken care of while I was gone. Reality – I came home to the same dirty dishes sitting in the dish washer along with dirty dishes that were used over the weekend piled in the sink. Then Went down to the basement to find the garbage still sitting there. Because I wasn’t home to take the trash out or remind anyone(my husband) to take it out. So there for garbage day was missed. Not to mention my messy home. Are all husbands this lazy? I feel like I can’t go any where because I am so dependent on to do absolutely everything!
Ahhhhh, is your husband 10 years old. I don’t know how you reacted but you would have heard me from where you live to the moon and back. What you came home to was completely unacceptable, disrespectful, inconsiderate and uncalled for.
If you can go on strike. Stop doing everything for everyone and see how they feel about it. Stop taking out the garbage, cooking your husbands meals, cleaning up after him and doing his laundry. If he doesn’t care to be your “partner” you know working together, raising a family 50/50, acting like a couple then you shouldn’t care about being his, let’s see how he feels about receiving the same treatment.
Again, people will only treat you the way you allow them to treat you and by allowing this to stop you from going away again is just ludicrous.
Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs,
One Tough Muther
