I have this issue with my H, too. The way I handled the dishes was I got rid of everything except two of everything. So we only have two cups, two spoons, two forks, etc. Except we do have about four plates and four bowls. There are very rarely dirty dishes.

My H will also clean if I ask him to so once a week I ask him to clean things like the kitchen and two of the bathrooms. I've just accepted that I'm going to have to ask him.

He leaves his shoes RIGHT in front of the front door so I trip on them every time. I used to ask him to move them constantly but that was getting on my nerves so then I started putting them at the very back of the entry closet, hoping the extra effort would entice him to move them out of my way. Nope. So i lost that battle as well. I've just come to accept that I'll have to push them out of my way.

My husband is a neat freak. I always feel like I'm not good enough for him! LOL And I keep a clean house.

Although he likes to put everything away in the kitchen and I can NEVER find or reach anything. Like the toaster on the top shelf. HELLO!!! I USE THAT EVERY DAY! LOL!!!
