I love my husband, I really do. He's a great guy, great husband and father. A hard worker and very smart. And we're very fortunate that he has a job. But. He has worked from home all but 5 or 6 days since school let out at the end of June (starts up again a week from today). And he expects quiet. As in... "Why are you letting her friends play here? I'm working.", "Turn down the tv, I'm working.", "You can't vacuum now, I'm working." And he ties up our land line from 8Am until 5PM, gets annoyed when anyone calls for Duckie or me. It used to be that he took a lunch from noon until 1PM, but now his conference calls are running over. I sat around waiting to clean the bathroom and vacuum the house from 11AM on because I can't make a sound or tie up the bathroom so he can dart in there to grab his shower. So he comes out out his office and is grabbing his lunch at 12:35PM today. Tries to bring it into our living room/dining room and gets annoyed when I say he's going to have to eat it in the kitchen since I'm going to now (finally!) run the vacuum for the first time since last weekend. We have two cats so our house really needs a minimum of twice a week and even more when the cats are shedding heavily. He tells me to hurry up because he had another call at 1PM. I tried not to be angry but I did say he had to let me know when I can do things around the house that might make noise since he's chosen to work from home so often. He actually had the nerve to get pissy with me, so I called him on it and reminded him that this was also a home and they are not always quiet. I pointed out that he complains when Duckie has friends over and when he can't have zero background noise. He then denied it! I pointed out that he just said to hurry up because he had another call!!!! So I've decided to vacuum every room in the house today. Twice. Grrr.
