Your husband cleaning for a day

How would you like for your husband to take over the cleaning duties for just one day? My husband works for a living and I don't know if he could find the time except for on the weekends. But by then he want to rest. I can't really blame him!

When I'm sick, my fiance has no problem with helping with light housekeeping - cleaning up the kitchen, starting a load of laundry, cleaning the floors, and so on. He'd be completely clueless about doing it for a solid day, though, because he's never paid attention to what I do here everyday. He just thinks things are automatically clean all the time, I guess. hehe We both work 40 hours or more per week, but he still feels this type of thing is "woman's work" and has a hard time remembering to pitch in if I don't ask.

It is good to have a man like you have. He should make a good husband also. It is true that some men might not realize how it is in the life of a woman's work day. Things just get cleaned but it definitely isn't magic or anything! You work a full time job yourself and still clean. That sure is a lot to do.

Heck no... he'd mess it up. He has his jobs- I hate the dishes so he does them. But if I do them and put them away "wrong" he gets upset. I feel the same way when he tries to do my chores. Yet, I would love to let things go for half a minute with out him turning green.

I would love it! Just yesterday was my husbands day off and my teens were off from school for Regents week. I run a home daycare, so I was working and my family was here too. I was doing dishes, laundry and cleaning while the babies napped and my husband laid on the couch watching tv. I did make a remark that he could have at least washed his own dish from lunch. I don't think alot of men realize how much work it is keeping a house clean.

My husband has been a big help to me, especially when I have been laid up. He helps clean the house on the weekends too. Neither of us have a lot of time during the week to get much done. We have a small business and work together. He still folds the clothes differently than I do but that's okay. The only thing he doesn't help with is washing the clothes. Back when we had to line dry everything I had to go off for a bit one day. I asked him to hang the clothes on the line when the dryer stopped. He did. However, for some reason the washer didn't spin all the water out that day. I came home and the clothes were soaking wet, dripping and dragging the ground. Yes, I know, he did what I asked. The only thing I can't seem to get him to do is fill the ice cube trays. He is the one using all the ice. Still, I think I will keep him around. He is also very entertaining, lol.

Husband and I both work but he already does most of the cleaning. Lower tolerance for mess and I have a bad back too!
