or if you are a husband have you lost your steam and am now are a couch potatoe? When I first met my husband 11 years ago, we used to do things, not necessarily things that cost money. We would take a drive, go to the park, go camping, go to the beach laugh and just have a good time. Now, all he wants to do is sleep, watch tv and do nothing. He always say he is tired, mind you he does not work (his choice) and we do absolutely nothing. If we go to someones house, he finds a couch holds on to the remote and that is it, even if it is an outside event, if I do not see him outside, I know where he is. I'm always saying why bother to go out, you can watch tv at home. I am living a very boring life, I'm not working now, (not my choice), but when I was working, it was so frustrating, that after going through the stress of the week, when the week end came I did nothing fun, to prepare me for the upcoming week. Now that I am not working, it is extremely boring, what's a girl to do. LOL

How do you pay your bills if you both dont work? My husband and I both work. My husband is a very hard worker. He is not lazy at all. When he come home from work he keeps busy to He does things around the house he cooks washes clothes, cuts the grass and many more things. well I think you should go back to work so you have something to do. Than I would get rid of the tv set than maybe he will get up and do something.

I am not working because it was my choice, I got laid off from my last job about 3 weeks ago. I am currently looking for work, which is a job in itself. I agree I should go back to work, but it is not as cut and dry as that, unfortunately.

Well hopefully by now, things have changed a little for you in this department, and it sounds like maybe he should be seen by a Doctor to see if he is Diabetic or something as being this tired could be a definate sign. But maybe things are better for you and you are doing what you like.

I don't know why some adults are so lazy. Could it be they are experiencing something? Are they so depress not able to put themselves together? For kids, it is acceptable since they are still playful. Personally speaking, I don't feel so productive if I don't do anything.
