    Default My husband the "helper"

    OMG!!! So I stripped the bedding this morning to wash the sheets, and put them in a basket. I then ran to the grocery store....I get home and Joe said the sheets are in the dryer..OK, so far so good!!
    I look in Vegas's crate and all his bedding is gone too. I ask "where is his bedding?"
    Joe said in the dryer with ours ...I can tolerate some things, but I do want my bedding washed, BLEACHED, and by itself, not with dog hairs on them to put back on my bed!!
    I am now re-washing seperately, with bleach for my personal sheets. I swear he does this so I will tell him I will do the laundry for now on!!

    That is so funny--sounds like something that could happen around here except my husband has NEVER done a load of wash!

    That is exactly why the men do what they do wrong all the time. Ugh.... How frustrating! Us women need to start doing things wrong so the men will take over. Course then my luck would be nobody would do anything. haha

    @Lucy-licious!, no way, no how...is he EVER allowed to touch the laundry!!! This is a big NO-NO!! Over a year ago he tried to "help" me once again and dried all my 100% cotton blouses and sweaters, they would not have even fit Vegas!! Why he tried again today is beyond me.

    Bruce does ALL the laundry here these days. As househusband he had to take over those chores when he was no longer working and I still am.

    He has made a few mistakes. But overall does a good job. He knows if he ruins my clothes I'd have to go buy more. So he does take some extra care of my work clothes loads. ::

    OMG sounds like my husband. One of the first times we were "hanging out", we stopped at his place so he could take his laundry out of the dryer ... he proceeded to squish it all back into the hamper all clean. AHHHH! He's not allowed to touch laundry except when I've preset the dryer so all he does is switch it and turn it on.

    @LariP That is AWESOME!

    Not me... My husband does a better job than I do. I'm soooo not the Martha Stewart type person. He does it all and then asks me if he did well. I love him and wouldn't trade him for the world!!! Don't get me wrong, I still do laundry, but he's the one that irons and what-not. I sooo don't know how to iron.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    everyone in my house does their own laundry (well, except for the fur babies). My children have been doing their own laundry since the youngest ones were about 11 and they are almost 15 now. That way no one can complain that they don't have any clean clothes because if they do, it's their own fault. The only thing I do for the whole family is the bedding. Once I taught them (the kids) how to run the washer and dryer and sort out the clothes, they were on their own. I have a sign in my house that my sister painted for me that says "M is for Mom, not Maid"!
