In my house, I do the cooking and I won't cook in the kitchen if it isn't clean and I won't do the dishes. Husband does the dishes every morning.  I did compromise about having the kitchen clean all the time.

If you do you should get it copyrighted

Actually, the second you *make* it (not think of it, ideas aren't copyrightable), it's copyrighted. You don't have to do anything.  But people sometimes forget not to steal from others or ask permission, so for extra security, you can add a Creative Commons seal (you have to register for that, they have many options, very cool) or just (c) Your Name, Year (which you don't have to register for, like I said, it's automatically copyrighted to you).

But I agree that you could totally print a bunch, laminate/plastify them and sell them to girl-less boys!  Cheesy

nope, sorry. the poor man's copy right is only partially defendable. In order to fully prosecute someone for stealing your art or your creation, you MUST register it with the US copy right service (if you are in the US). apologies - we're in the process of getting all my husbands work registered so am getting pretty familiar with the process.

Oh, sorry.  Cheesy I thought it worked everywhere like that, but in Canada, you don't have to register anything. As long as you can prove you made it first. That's really too bad for Americans though, that it's so complicated! The more complicated it is, the less people will register their stuff... Oh well, our copyright law has flaws too, I'm sure!  Wink

Even with directions, most guys seem to be useless at cleaning.  They either don't understand, don't care, or don't make an effort!  My husband, for example, will occasionally get out the vacuum cleaner and then proudly announce to me he's "helped me out".  Of course he hasn't, because when he vacuums, he never does the corners, or moves anything, lol.  Plus, why announce it?  Maybe I'll start announcing everything:  Hey honey, I just cleaned the toilet, hey honey, I just did the dishes!  hahahha

haha.   that sounds hilarious... HONEY, I've scrubbed those stains around the toilet from where you've missed...

I guess I've got high hopes because my dad is totally awesome at cleaning and always has done his share...if not more than his share...because HE can't stand living in filth.   

Either way, I know the boy is sick of living with the mess that they've got going on and honestly didn't remember what to do to clean it up properly.  I'm not expecting him to ever do his share if/when we move back in together...I know that will probably never happen.  I do expect him to help out if needed and if I'm sick or if he's feeling extra nice. Smiley Now he can't use the excuse of "I don't know how"

We'll see. Tomorrow is the supposed day of duty.
