No, DH, I don't want to DO ANYTHING today.

Dh has taken the week off work so it's not like today is a precious day off. It's the last week if the holidays, they don't go back until next Monday.
I'm a sahm, three children, and this holidays has been a long slog, especially with the bad weather. I was looking forward to having him around so that I could have a bit of a break from the constant 'what are we doing today Mum'. But he's doing it too! He's taken ds2 upstairs to play lego but he's spent all weekend trying to chivvy me into 'doing things', from playing Risk with him to going on a family dog walk in the rain.
Aibu to think he can just get on with being all activity driven and I can just veg this week? I don't want to have to be constantly doing something and if he wants to he can crack on and do it?

I know how you feel. If we aren't doing something we've wasted a day apparently. Three kids still in pjs, none of them want to get dressed and go out in the rain. It's just not worth the grief of trying to get them out to do something they don't want to do when we are sitting in peace and quiet while they are upstairs playing quietly (for the first time in weeks).

I really wanted a lazy morning in our PJs after hosting DS's 3rd birthday party at home yesterday ... but received text from FIL saying he'd be along just after 8! Argh. So a rush to get kids/self dressed & breakfast things cleared before he arrived. I shouldn't really complain, he's doing a lot of work in our garden for us, but I really just wanted some lazing before taking DS to preschool after lunch!

no no no, you are doing it all wrong! the DCs and DH need to do something - and while you might need to organise it, you then don't participate.
tomorrow, plan an activity your DH can do with the DCs alone - pack them up, get them ready with him, wave them off with a smile, return to sofa. Send them to a film, or a local national trust place, pack a picnic for them and send them out, soft play, museum visit, anything, just not with you. Enjoy the silence.

Sorry femme yep, bit half his ear off. The top part, its grim! He's a doorman, end of the night, got jumped from behind from what I can gather and the guy literally chowed down on his ear! He's had it glued back on, I've not seen it, he didn't even wake me up, just rang my Dad to go help him in the hospital because he hadn't taken his wallet and ended to pay for parking! First clue I had was when I got up and he was downstairs on the couch covered in crusty blood with a big dressing in his head. He didn't want to wake me up and worry me. (Sorry for the slight threadjack OP!). I've got pictures, didn't know whether to start a new thread about it, its quite grotty, not sure how many people would want to see a bloody grotty ear klaxon!
