Does your retired husband drive you crazy? What are we to do about it?

My husband retired the summer after we got married (in January of 2003). In some ways I like it. He used to get up at 5 am to be at work for 630. Now we can stay in bed and relax. Somedays, my husband watches TV and just sits there. This bothers me, there are things that need to be done and often I am in the kitchen cooking or doing dishes. Couldn't he be sweeping or out in the yard doing something? I have often wondered how a grown man can actually have NO hobbies. How did he get to this point in his life? We have only been married three years and I am 13 years younger than he and I am disabled. We are together almost all the time. It's not a matter of being on edge with each other. We are at peace and in love. I really love him and he treats me well, but does retirement mean that all he has to do is sleep in front of the TV?
