[ - ] I WOH and am gone over 10 hrs a day. I also take care of Dc almost exclusively, as well as doing the food shopping, most errands and the majority of household stuff. DH works slightly shorter hours and has periods of time when he doesn't work (not vacation). When we first got married, I never asked him to do anything, figuring he'd realize there was lots he could do around the house. But, he didn't, so I started asking him to do some things, just to lighten my load so I could spend more time with DC. But, no matter what I asked, or how I asked, it either never happened or would be done half-assed (I am by no means a perfectionist - you should see my house! - but it's not actually vacuuming when there is still dust on the floor). And it was clear he didn't want to be ordered around. I was never nasty when I asked so I think it was just his feeling that I was telling him what to do. So now he does nothing. Literally not a thing. I am so frustrated. I tried discussing it with him but he doesn't get it. Just last night I came home from a very long day and he asked what was for dinner. Ugh. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Ok obviously that is stylistically way off and maybe the teacher is a dingdong.

I had both feet done, each at different time by different doc. Had right one done first (it was worse), doc shaved off the bone then realign, had a wire held the bones then rehab followed by removal of wire. Recovery was longer. By the time I was ready for my left foot, the first doc sadly passed so I went to a new doc. He opted to use a screw (instead of wire) to hold the bones together. Much quicker recovery but I like the right one much better. My left toe has a slight curl and must more callus formed on bed of foot where the screw is located. I don't remember being too painful, it was more painful to walk around with bunion. [ Reply | More ]
