My husband is in the Army.
Mine is a law enforcement officer.
That's what my dad does!
What a dream job! I'm toying with getting my masters in this area.
My dh expects me to do EVERYTHING around the house. I got a major lecture last night, in fact, for not emptying the dishwasher since I was 'home all day'.
Doesn't he know I'm busy posting on A-Z???? Sheesh.
Mine works in a factory. He manufactures "yarn". But not the kind you buy at a craft store. He produces synthetic grass for landscaping. His last exciting batch of yarn went to the Florida Gators! The yarn was even called Gator Blue. : )
Your husband is now my most favorite person I've never met.
Firefighter/Fishing Guide/First Aid Instructor/Big Knowitall
That last one is the one that he's busiest at 24/7.
My wife stays home with our kids waiting for me to come home and do child care.
My husband is the Director of Projects and Gas Facilites for an electric utility company - but my fave title is director of gas production which he does 24/7
Before his last promotion, his business cards actually read Director of Gas Production Facilites :lol: I am not kidding :lol: I framed one and keep it on my desk at school.
I hate it when everyone I know just assumes that I will run errands/clean/whatever just because I'm home! I swear, my DEAR hubby thinks there are 25 hours in the day. And I do pretty much take care of the house cleaning in the summer, but that's because I'm a bit ocd about it. I will NOT put away everyone's clothes though. I do my own, that's it.
Oh, and great news-I've been promoted to chief gardener and lawn care specialist since around the middle of June. Grrr!
Mine is a "Federal Account Manager". He sells and manages video conference systems for the Marines, Navy, law enforcement, hospitals, and schools.
You'll have to commute to San Jose, Jem - the only programs in CA are at SJSU and UCLA.
I know! I'm down in Los Gatos for my job, anyhow. I also found a program online as well. We'll see-I can't do it right now.
My DH shares this title as well.
I'm curious why you accept this situation. I don't see that he should contribute financially to your children since he isn't married to you and a step-father to your children. It is the responsiblity of both you and the father of your children to financially support them. I will say that I am not a fan of couples living together before marriage because many times the woman gets the short end of the stick (not always, but many). Does he pay for his share of groceries or are you supporting him in that manner? You say you pay your share -- are we talking about you paying 3/4 of the rent since there are three of you and only one of him? Stop cooking/shopping for him. Let him do his own cleaning or hire someone. One gets treated the way they allow themselves to be treated. The power is yours to change if you don't like how you are being treated. Personally, I wouldn't like being in your situation as it sounds as if you are being used as a maid and cook.
BTW, my dh is an orthopedic surgeon.
My DH is a musician.
He was playing lead guitar when we met, but he's been playing mostly bass guitar for the past couple of years.
My husband is an environmental geophysicist with a local engineering firm (this is why I often refer to him as Rockhubby). His basic job is to figure out how generations before us defiled land and how to best remedy it. Thankfully, he realizes that I hate to cook so we are able to divide the chores despite my summer break.
My DH is a computer engineer.
Ok, so my dh is going to start coursework on geography in August..should only take a year and then will become certified to teach/coach.
Legal intern and law student. I cannot wait until he graduates and passes the bar!
Good luck to your DH, stg!!
Scooter, I need to see a chiropractor YESTERDAY, so I'm quite jealous of you right now.
My DH is a high school Humanities/AP social studies-history teacher.
Just don't ask him any questions if you'd rather not know what happened since the beginning of time.
My DH is a happily, retired, journeyman, diagnostic electrician who worked for the railroad. Since he's been retired he's my gourmet cook, stock broker, personal shopper, and organizer. I don't know how in the world I ever made it when the kids were home and we both worked!
With Sunny and Jem on the soft spot for engineers, my boyfriend is a structural engineer with a mechanical engineering degree.
DH is a social worker- working with mentally ill repeat offenders.
My husband is a materials engineer and works in an auto research development center. He loves cars. In fact... he's still not home because he's working on race cars.
In response to all the housework during the summer...
I'm working this summer so we're not dealing with any of that. BUT last summer I did not work and I was L-A-Z-Y. It kind of irritated him because I was home all day and didn't do all of the cleaning. Then I would attack him when he came in the door because I was tired of being by myself all day. =) However I pretty much always had dinner on the table when he got home.
When I'm off for the summers... I will most likely do the majority of housework. He still mows the lawn and takes the garbage out and clean cleans. (I'm more of a picker-upper and a wiper-downer =) He's pretty good at cleaning the bathroom and the stove. I like cooking and don't mind picking up or vacuuming.
I was a stay at home mom for years while I was getting my degree part time so I haven't work during the summer in about 14 years.
I normally do the same stuff as I do all year but I also try to do a few big jobs and then I can take a break on the everyday chores. This year I'm going to paint the house, that should buy me a few freebies as far as dinners go.
DH is pretty helpful although it is painful listening to him recap all the things he did. I'm thinking of getting him a trophy that I can bring out when he's especially helpful.
I guess if I'm going to actually paint the house I should get started instead of spending so much time on here and Facebook.
My DF is a web designer full time. He is also a musician and works in the television field when the opportunity arises.
Since I have been unemployed my hubby has nagged me about doing more housework. I H-A-T-E cleaning. I would rather paint the house. In fact, I am thinking of building a deck. Can't be that hard. I can sew, and building a deck is like sewing, just with wood--right?
My husband is a 4th generation rancher/farmer on his family's 5400 acre angus cattle and hay ranch. On any given day, he plays the roll of husband, father, son, son-in-law, child care provider (he takes care of our babies during the school year), farmer, rancher, veternarian, mechanic, water master, welder, carpenter, plumber (on a bad day), truck driver, accountant, book keeper, agronomist, wildlife manager, logger, animal care provider, and noxious weed sprayer.
He is finally home for a few evenings. The first cutting of hay is in; he was putting in 18 hour days for about the last three weeks. I admire his work ethic and his honesty in all that he does.
My DH is a native-speaking Italian professor & talented artist, but unfortunately we haven't met yet :lol: :lol: :lol:
Maybe you need a trip to Italy to help things along? LOL
My husband is a supervisor in the medical field and also co-owns a business.
My hubby is a civil tech. engineer/registered land surveyor.
Pices, I will keep my eyes open for him.
