Oh, but you know what, you may be right, Bubbles, I would never be happy with his stringent rules on housekeeping. We talked about this last night. He asked what housekeepers do. I did this for a short while (>1yr), as a sub-contractor and as a business owner, and I told him what I did and what my contractor required for so-many-dollars. Going rate here is $75 for a two-hour clean, including a full bath clean and kitchen surfaces, dust, sweep, vacuum, and mop of the entire house. He wanted it done three times a week, but was not willing to pay $225/week for it. He'd rather abuse me about it, like he deserves it, for some odd reason.

Like I don't already provide him a once a week service.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
