Meh. I get up at 5:00 AM. And I usually read for about an hour in bed before I fall asleep.

How do you figure this? I mean, yeah, I made one slightly snarky "women amirite?" comment... but you had already made several posts telling people they were "overthinking" and criticizing other people for their approaches or for sharing their experiences and perspectives on the division of labor. And you didn't limit that "overthinking" condescension to just me or NA - you spread that around to several people and were quite dismissive of their points.

I'm not even going to get into all your snide "angry yogurt eating" comments, which are so far off base that it's actually funny.

Seems like that would reduce the mental effort of worrying about being able to eat what you want each day.
We usually have some kind of back-up food available. It's a process, so I'm pretty supportive. He's getting better, his shopping has improved and he's getting better at including veggies. His biggest hurdle is the timing. Sometimes he gets distracted and doesn't start prepping and cooking on time, sometimes he gets hyper-focused looking at recipes and doesn't start prepping and cooking on time! He does better when he's using the instant Pot, where he can just set the time and it yells at him when it's done. His biggest hurdle really is estimating the amount of time it is going to take him to wash and cut the veggies. It will come with practice.

I was purposely being snarky to you, mostly because a lot of the time I assume you are trolling or being contradictory just for giggles. So I don't take very many of your comments seriously.


On a serious note though, if your husband usually cooks and frequently has dinner ready late and eating late is a physical issue for you (heartburn sucks) you should have a conversation about it if you haven't already. I'm assuming you've probably had the conversation at least once, and just not understanding why you put up with it.



And the snide angry yogurt eating comments were meant to be funny, although maybe not necessarily funny "to you", since they were at your expense.

I suggest a stash of <insert favorite Little Debbie snack> hidden behind the couch so you can sneak a snack while he isn't looking.

Save yourself the trouble and hire a professional to do all this stuff. Leave the parenting to those who are trained to do it.

Or just save the trouble and don't have kids.

Or just be homeless so you don't have to worry about household chores. If finding a new refrigerator box to live in is your only chore, it won't be a big deal to share it...
