Joy I had too, otherwise I would come home and nothing would have been done, I got sick of coming home to the breakfast dishes still in the sink, took a bit to get him over the "I should be out working, not stuck at home" he went through depression etc, anyway it all worked out so all is good
I still make lists for myself so I make sure and get things done I want to get done. I make up lists to for DH when we are having an event, he will make his list also for just every weekend so he remembers things he wants to get done.
Oz, good for you, I love the entire board idea with writing it down, just like when my kids had chores they had to check it off daily.
This is where there is a thin line w/men!! You don't want to make them feel like "one of the kids" otherwise they'll just fight it. I think Val will have to break him slowly and gently so he doesn't get offended.
and yes we all know MEN are a bunch of KIDS!!! lol
