My husband is really annoying me lately. It's not anything that he's done, it's just that for years and years I've taken care of everything. My time has been spent doing things like child rearing, cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, paying bills, and other random house stuff. (Oh, and working a full time job) He does stuff too, but it's less the everyday things and more repairs and maintenance type stuff. Now, though, I have other stuff I want to do. The kids are grown & gone. I have no interest in stopping my work on whatever creative thing I'm doing to make him a dinner. Or to clean the house. I don't want to do any of it. And he still expects it. And I'm over it. I think we need to talk about this. I might want to hire a cleaning person. And he needs to start cooking every once in a while. I don't want to be responsible for anyone but me at this point. I feel like I've earned that.
