I'm cracking up here! My dh has ADD too. You tell him something and it goes in one ear and out the other. I asked him to come home to watch the kids while I went to a dental appt several times. I put it on our Google calendar, on the fridge and verbally reminded him several times. So a couple days before my appt I'm reminding him again and he says he can't come home from work b/c I didn't give him enough notice! And why didn't I put it on the calendar?!? Grrr...

I still love him though. Even if he drives me crazy sometimes!

I can relate too! I asked my husband to put away all his jackets (you know the ones that he leaves thrown all over the bed)

You know what he did...shoved them in the corner!!! I don't think they will ever get it :)

I can not complain about mine here, although I can totally say that would drive me nuts. I would wind up doing everything myself which is not something you can do if you are supposed to be takling it easy!!

I've got one with ADD too! He not only has zero time management, he also cannot prioritize to save his soul. He has been sheetrocking our garage, which is a large task, but it has a little bit done on every wall. He tires of working on one wall so he moves on to the next. It's like a patchwork quilt of sheetrock!
Right now he is supposed to be folding a load of laundry since I'm "working", but I can see that basket is half done with socks everywhere and he is doing pushups and watching frasier. Is there any hope to get him to focus for longer than our 3 year old?!?

I'd be annoyed, too. Sometimes dh's are completely clueless.

your dh sounds like me! Now I know what my husband has to put up with. I'm sorry that would really annoy me too.

Thanks girls. Yeah, ADD is a possibility. I folded and hung up all the laundry and he usually totes it up the stairs for me in two super heavy baskets and puts it up....well, after I asked him, I heard this paper ripping sound coming from the basement...i was like what are you doing...this is 30 minutes later, and he's like going thru these papers.......i was like, uh, what about the LAUNDRY!!?!??! MEN!

My dh has ADD so that is our life on a daily basis. I put his to do list in his phone and let it remind him of what needs done. Sometimes it still doesn't happen, but I've learned to put up with it the best I can.
Hope you got to enjoy the alone time.
It doesn't sound like they get better w/ age. Good luck.
