I have a lot of work to do and the darn sweeper belt broke and pushing without about killed me. 
 
We have the brother-in-law and his dau coming in on thursday for 10 days.....plus his families reuniouns 2 weekends in a row......here at our house.  Next year is the same schedule but HE wants to add a fourth of July party.  I am getting tired just thinking about it.
 
Just needed to vent as our grandson left last night after a week.....oh yea he will be here for those 10 days too....I picked and froze a ton of green beans yesterday.  When the grandson is here it is like I have 2 kids, breakfast, lunch & dinner and hubby does nothing inside of the house but he does a ton outside so I can't really complain to him. 
 
He says all he wants from me is a SPOTLESS house but he really does want more. 
 
This doesn't sound like much but keeping ice and ice tea made for him (I don't drink it) food in the fridge, shipping our products when needed, cooking, sweeping, gardening, running errands, laundry plus who knows what else.  He still complains that the house is not clean enough, honest, it is not filthy but with him and a 10 year old plus my German Shepherd, it does get a lived in look.  It is a log house and get more dusty than a regular house, we live on a small farm NOT in a showplace, and beliueve he does not lift a finger inside let alone picking up after himself.
 
OK, I am done venting and have to go upstairs and bring down the old sweeper.  Thanks for listening.

I'd tell him he has a choice for his demand.  He can either help you with the cleaning so it can be as spotless as he demands OR he can pay for a cleaning service that can make it as spotless as he demands.  His demand...his choice. 
 
This is not unreasonable but his demand is.  You are suffering from chronic pain...he is suffering from lack of compassion.

Hi Denise,

I'm sorry you have to deal with all of that. A spotless house without help from everyone who messes it up, or paid outside help when you deal with chronic pain is next to impossible. It sounds like you do a huge amount of work. Sending you encouragement and wishing I could send you household help, which it sounds like you could desperately use. I hope your husband's brother and niece don't view you as their personal servants while they are visiting.

I'm with Sherrine on this one!! If HE wants it a certain way then HE needs to man-up and make sure it's done by either doing it himself or hiring some help. Has he no clue you have fibro??? He didn't marry a housekeeper or a maid, he married a wife and it's time he treat you that way. Send him here and Sherrine and I will explain a few facts to him and I"m sure Cali will help us out...

Good luck and please don't over due! If it's not perfect no one will notice...except maybe hubby...lol

Thanks all.  My best friend REALLY wants to spend a week here to straighten him out and it wouldn't be pretty smhair    I replaced the belts and reran the sweeper  and picked up so much crap that it couldn't get with the belts so loose.  It is not something one can see but it give me satisfaction, I know, I'm strange LOL. 
 
Hubby is a control freak in case you all didn't notice.  He gives me anxiety attacks and makes me a nervous wreck.  I don't like to mention the Fibro too much so needless to say at this point I have no support.  When the time comes it will be different.  I do wish he would realize that I can't concentrate on numbers anymore.......brain fog from first interferon & ribaviron then the fibro fog rolls in too.  Memory is shot but I can usually fake it pretty good.
 
It is so good to come here and "just let it all hang out"  Thank You

Check out the new thread I started on vitamin D.  It does help with memory and learning.  This might help you with the brain fog.
