sorry your not feeling well enough to go Joy, stay home, rug up and relax
You really made me laugh with your DH's, my MIL did the right thing with my DH, I would drop my washing at his place and go out with the girls before we were married, after we were married he started getting me breakfast, weekends he would make lunch and most times he was home before me at night so would cook dinner, when I had the girls I did it all, now it is back to how it should be, he gets my breakfast, lunch and most of the time cooks dinner, I do the washing he hangs it out and brings it in I put it away, only because I can't raise my arms high enough to hang/bring in
He vacuums and I wash the floors, it's great. Oh and as he makes the mess in the kitchen he cleans it too, he does the main bathroom I do the ensuite
Mickey I was laughing so hard reading your post. LOL! Reminds me of my ex, how his mama was with him and him with his mama. LOL!
Thanks Mickey, I am bummed that I am not going but I would rather skip it than get worse to much to do to be sick, so I will just stay home and work on my Christmas cards, have a goal to finish them tonight.

Wow Oz, sounds great how you and DH share it all. DH used to make me breakfast on the weekends but not so much anymore. He does however do his own dishes after he cooks himself breakfast, he always makes the coffee and has it ready for me in the mornings. He does all the yard work and I do the inside work, although I think I like your way better.
Im LOLing about everyones DHs (and EX dh's)... and being glad Im not married to them! Our house is more like Oz's house. I do the laundry, DH folds and puts it away. I feed everyone, but not always him (except when its dinner.) - hes capable of making his own lunch or breakfast. He makes me breakfast more often that I make it for him. Its not always, but if hes making eggs or something he always offers to make me some too. He bathes the kids and puts them to bed on the nights hes home. And when he works until 6am, he feeds them breakfast if they are up before hes ready for bed. I clean some, and he cleans some. Just depends on whos not busy when something needs cleaning.
OL is just like The Container Store, tons of home organization products.
POd at DH yet again, came home to the dork sleeping on the couch watching Potter, I still need to cook super - no idea what. Plus he thinks thr roasting pan i ordered won't work but of course hes not willing to do the research and ordering butvis great at giving his opinion.
I've gone on strike before, doesn't work as the man (using that term loosely) is clueless and really doesn't care. IDK maybe I strike wrong or more like it I give in first because the messy house drives me insane and the girls need to eat.
Super is in the oven - frozen tostino pizza not what I want but was quick and easy and what I had on hand. I really need to do a major shopping trip but I told JH that I needed his input on what to cook (I don't think that is too much to ask) even shared the shopping list app with him so he can add to it and he hasn't done a thing.
I was doing so well and even made it about 5 days without getting po'd. breath breath breath
Val I thought the same thing Megan did that it was a class. LOL!
I agree with you Val about giving in it would drive me nuts also. Maybe you should give him a "to do" list and tell him exactly what needs to be done and by when.
I have done that for the Turkey Week/get ready for his family and I think he'll do them I just want help with the daily stuff, simple stuff like give me ideas of what to cook, if I'm running girls around start supper, help bathe the girls, simple stuff.
