  1. I do think I would ask for more help with the weekend chores if he is asking you to commit the time for something else. Good to pick apart, though, to analyze where the feelings are coming from and not just act out due to frustration. A great lesson for me

    Yeh…I think this was an incredible exercise, to understand your own motives. That’s great. I would start a analyzing why you have to be the one to shop and that the things you need to move (aside from paper grading) are fun things. Why do you think you have to overbill the marriage in responsibility stuff. Same reasons, it sounds like… but maybe taking these ten lessons is a lesson in compromising in several ways- you take ten classes which your brain can also allot to ‘husband favour’ because he’s the one who wants you to do them…. and he has to help with more house stuff as a test. It will probably show that he can and should be doing more, because parity, and also it will show you the world doesn’t end when fairness does. If you like the training you maybe have a new hobby. If you don’t, you get two more hours of fun time and sign up for a great hot yoga class

      I like your perspective:) He does do things around the house and the big picture is a fair one. And he always helps when I ask. For various reasons, the shopping/laundry is mine. And those are also bigger time sucks that can’t be put off forever:) You’re so on point with the responsibility stuff. I’ve always been overly responsible, much of which is self-imposed. Working on it!
