Hubby was gone all last week. On Thursday I decided to do some freezer cooking so we would have some meals on hand. He always complains we have nothing to eat so I thought it would make him happy to have some nice meals.
He comes home on Thursday nights when he has to work out of town and he's pretty much worthless. He complains about being tired and wanting to relax. Um....I've been caring for your 3 children all week by myself. I am tired and would like to relax too.
I admit, I got in a little over my head with the cooking. I got 5 recipes from Once A Month Mom and each of them makes 4 meals. That's a lot to make in one evening. So when Hubby came home, I had pasta scorching on the stove, the oven timer beeping, food that needed to be taken out of the oven, chicken frying and splattering, and a baby screaming. The kitchen was A M.E.S.S.
I welcome Hubby home and ask him to tend to the screaming baby. He picks her up, and giving no effort of calming her down, says she needs me. Then he proceeds to yell at me for starting something like this on a Thursday night. Well maybe I thought I could get some help when you got home!!!!! But heck no, Hubby's "tired and wants to relax." Why would I expect such a thing?
The entire weekend was the same. He complained when I went to the store and wouldn't take the baby. Why in the heck would I take the baby? You're home sitting on your arse watching TV. He lectured me on laundry when one pair of his khakis were too wrinkled to wear and his other pair had been sitting in the washing machine for a day. He got mad because I didn't water the grass right, and the list goes on.
I'll spare you the details of today's pointless spat, but it ended with me hanging up on him in a rage and ignoring the 6 times he called back after that to yell at me for hanging up on him.
Sometimes it's hard to remember why you love someone so much.
Disclaimer: I'm not really going to kill my husband. I love the guy for reasons I'm still contemplating. We have come a long way in this challenge called marriage and we'll be together forever.
