Working Man Blues--Merle Haggard

Tyler makes me CRAZY! I just opened my dryer to find his dress shirts, my underwear and the bathmat all tumbling together!

Tyler likes to bring up that he has been doing his own laundry for years to which my reply is always that he hasn't been doing it right. See Tyler only believes in sorting the clothes into two loads: socks/underwear and everything else. That's it!! All my socks, underwear and whites are a disgustingly grayish brown color. For almost four years I have complained about this. Despite the fact that I do ALL the laundry, he still feels the need to randomly throw loads in here and there. Why can't he randomly pick his crap up from the living room once in a while?

Here's another thing that bugs the poop out of me: he invites people over when the house is a mess (99% thanks to him). He'll say, I'll help you clean and the spend 20 minutes cleaning the whole house. PS It took me longer to clean the kitchen than for him to do the whole rest of the house including scrubbing 2 bathrooms! He just doesn't get that people don't look at a messy house and think, "Man Tyler is a pig." They look at a messy house and think, "Man, Sabrina is a horrible housekeeper." As if it wasn't bad enough before, now I'm a stay at home mom which people think means I just sit at home and sip umbrella drinks. I know, I know. People don't come to my house to "look" at it. But the fact is, while it may not bother you to go to the messy house of a friend or family member, you can't help but think about it.

Sorry to rant, but I just had to get it out and since Tyler is already in bed...

Sabrina...I feel our pain! After 35 years I can tell you it is the same old same old thing. But Mark has learned that laundry is my thing...so stay clear. And I don't think they everlearn to pick up after themselves. Mark Napier is the only guy I know tha does that!
