So DH and I had a really great honest conversation yesterday about all of the things in our life that aren't getting done since LO got here. Especially house projects and the fact that we have way more clutter...just things like laundry sitting around etc. It is really bothering him and he suggested a couple strategies for working together to stay better on top of a few things.
I am off this week. ..so to show him I took him seriously I sent LO to daycare this afternoon anyway and then busted my ass for 3 hours. The whole house basically got picked up really well except the office. And the laundry is about caught up too. I felt so good.
After dinner he looked at me in all seriousness and said....you said you were cleaning all afternoon. ..where did you clean? I was speechless
This is our biggest marriage issue...I don't do things the way he likes them or when he likes them etc. And his love language is definitely things being done for him. So I purposefully tried hard.
I told him I quit ....to which he laughed. I cleaned up from dinner and left the house and told him I needed to do an errand. He knows I am mad because I never do this. I know it was super passive aggressive but I was about to lose it...which I didn't want to do in front of LO. I need to talk to him about this but I need to calm down.
Ugh...thanks for letting me vent!
