I'm just eight days post op after a total hip replacement, been home since Sunday. Before I went in my DH was very convincing that he was more than capable of looking after me, the dog and the house.
Well - today he's been driving me mad (possibly I'm getting very critical because I feel very good). Cooking supper tonight he asked where the onions are kept, now we've been in this house for a year now and I would have thought that he knew the basics. Next question - where is the potato masher? I say " top centre drawer and it's on the left side" "No it's not" so I wander out to the kitchen and find it exactly where I said it would be. "Oh I didn't know it had a brown handle" he says.
Why do I feel that I have to re-arrange the dishwasher after he's loaded it. It'd probably wash just as well the way he does it but I just have to re-arrange things inside.
I ask if he could feed the dog please - "where's the dog food?" although the dog himself, listening to the conversation, is already showing him which cupboard it's in.
The untidy pile of magazines is driving me nuts, so is the wrappers from things that are sitting next to the bin, not in it.
Now - I'm not an overly tidy or houseproud person, just like things where they belong. I know I'm being unreasonable and I'm doing my best not to criticise, I've got another few weeks of this. I love him dearly and I know that he's doing his best but how do I get through it without a huge tantrum!
Are they as helpless as they appear or do we encourage them to be too dependant on us?
Oh - and there's been a couple of dead leaves in the middle of the kitchen floor for the last few days
