One thing that has been driving me absolutely insane about my husband is his inability to understand and participate in the daily functionings of our household. I really want to know what the average guy can do. My dad and brothers can do it all, my husband's dad does nothing but he was rich. My husband has a short list of chores-like taking out garbage, mowing grass, and he does dishes every day or so-ok crap, that's all he's been doing. He does a lot with the kids, homework, coaches football, and he works 10 hour days at least. I work too as a teacher. Anyway- he won't do anything unless I ask, or the kids ask. It never occurs to him to do anything unless I ask. We've been arguing about this for 20 freaking years and I'm trying to make it work, but whenever I say I need more help he says he's tired, or he tells me what he does do. I do everything- shop, cook, all the cleaning, laundry, decorating, putting things together, fixing things around the house, fixing up the yard, planning of everything, I take care of my own car, he's domestically retarded, he really is. If we were rich I'd get a maid and stay home and it wouldn't be as big an issue. I just want some effort and initiation on his part!

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
