For every gold coin I "earn" in the game by doing housework, I get to spend ten cents on me for something I want but don't need. It's a lot easier to scoop cat poop when it "earns" you a mani-pedi!

He had the nerve to tell me one day last week (in answer to my asking him if he didn't think I'd like a break from dishes once in a while)..."I don't like doing dishes."
I just looked at him and said "Oooh, ok. Well, why didn't you just say so? I mean, it's a good thing I LOVE them. I mean, THANK HEAVEN I have something to look forward to everyday!"

Oh, I guess I should give credit where credit is due...some days I will come home from the gym, exhausted, and the entire kitchen is spotless. I agree, that is totally foreplay hahaha. That is one of the nicest things DH can do for me: clean my kitchen.

That is good advice~ I should stop doing things and when he runs out of clean clothes he'll have to do something.

Last night I had to go out for a few hours I had a big surprise when I got home.. The dishwasher had been unloaded and reloaded. The kitchen was spotless and laundry had been put away with the washer loaded and ready to be started this morning. Also our 3 year old daughter was bathed and in her PJ's! I was impressed. I thought he wanted something but I was wrong..lol

Do more housework, get better sex
Who knew cleaning could be such a turn-on? Men who do more housework may be having better sex because of it, according to US experts.
Women are happier with men who do more around the house and might be more willing to reward them sexually, said a report published on the website of the Council of Contemporary Families (CCF).
"When men do more of the housework, women's perceptions of fairness and marital satisfaction rise and the couple experience less marital conflict," the report claims.
The study shows that American men's contribution to housework has increased about 15 percent in the last 40 years.
"We sociologists generally don't go there, but therapists say there's a direct correlation" between men doing more housework and the frequency of sex," the report's co-author sociologist Scott Coltrane told a French news agency.
In a comment posted on the CCF website, psychologist Joshua Coleman agreed that sharing household chores "is associated with higher levels of marital satisfaction - and sometimes more sex, too!"
"Wives report greater feelings of sexual interest and affection for husbands who participate in housework," Coleman added.

We both work full time jobs and at the end of my day I go and pick his kids up from daycare, get the homework done and get dinner going before he even gets home. His job is super-stressful and mine is not and that is his justification for not being able to help out around the house - that he is physically and mentally wiped out by the time he gets home...
We live in a large house - 4400 square feet and there is A LOT of cleaning to do - 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and 4 of us living there. When I had a meltdown at the end of one of his rants, guess what he told me to do...hire a housekeeper!
So I will say, I share your anger in this
