and it's driving me craaaaaazy vent follows: read at your own risk... <edited> AND...the worst thing is that i cant really do anything about it. i'm not into threats and ultimatums. i'm not going to nag and bitch cause that never does any good. i'm sick to death of cleaning up after him, but if i dont clean up after him, then I have to live in a mess all the time. i dunno. if i specifically and nicely ask him to do certain things (ie, load the dishwasher and put it on), he'll do it. but he can just tornado thru the house and make such a huge mess in such a short period of time. he makes more of a mess than the 2 year old!!! LOL, whaddaya do?
