    we have 5 acres and a nice size house, he does all the outside and I do all the inside, he's real good at letting me know when I'm behind too!!! LOL, he's very patient and pitches in when he needs to, sorta like KathyAire's does. it's just easier to do it myself.

    I don't mind...he does enough as it is. I would rather has a few chores that are just mind..just like I have not interest in snowblowing.

    he wants to do a chore but apparently isn't sure how to do it correctly?

    where's the problem? sounds more like an opportunity to me.

    if you show him - without foolishly making him feel like a useless idiot - he'll be able and willing to do that chore more often.

    My husband spends his evenings downstairs watching sports, so he happily does a Lot of laundry. He leaves mine for me, which is a good thing. He does not do housework. I do all the cooking, and he does all dishes and keeps our stove sparkling. He often stops at the market when he's out & about to buy the kinds of things he likes to snack on (yogurt, bananas, popcorn, and an occasional box of ice cream).

    My DH would eat soup (and has many times) straight from the can if there isn't someone here to heat it for him. He does the dishes and mows the yard. He also works on my car and does things like brake jobs/oil changes/general maintenance. But he takes it to my brother's house and they do it together. My brother has a huge hydraulic car lift so DH doesn't have to bend. His back doesn't do that well since there's a metal ladder holding his spine together. I've tasted his cooking, seen his laundry and cleaning methods. I'll do the rest myself, thank you. In the almost 16 yrs we've been married he's never cleaned a toilet, sink or bathtub, swept, mopped or vacuumed a floor, changed and/or made a bed, sorted laundry, dusted or washed a window.

    yes...all the time, we do most of the household (stuff) together...we take turns fixing dinner...usually make it together on the weekends, after dinner we both work on clean up. regular cleaning...who ever puts something in the hamper -sees it full- takes it to the washer and starts laundry. he cleans the bathrooms, i vacuum. he mops the kitchen, i dust...he loads the dishwasher, i unload it...ect. we are a pretty good team :thumbup:
