it isnt that he doesnt do it RIGHT bella,
it is just that he doesnt do it like you.
the end result is the same correct? Clean bathroom?
So how he gets there is his own, as it is your own.
So long as the result is the same, then the way of getting there needs to be ignored. ;-)
i have a hard time with that too. I even caught myself one time thinking that the toilet wasnt clean because he didnt spray tilex FIRST.. then flush, then scrub with ajax..
yeah, im anal..

My relationship with my husband and how we divvy up our household chores and parenting is far from perfect, but for the most part it works for us. Believe it or not I think it helps that we both work outside the home. If one of us worked at home then I would expect more issues around household chores and childcare.

I drop off the kids in the morning and he picks up. I take care of the majority of the childcare – kids clothes, feeding, homework, getting to bed, baths, changing diapers, etc. He takes care of most of the household chores (except I typically clean the kitchen and do a little more of the cooking). This works for us probably because of our personal likes and dislikes. The majority of our conflicts center around when he walks into the room when there is children fighting or having other discipline type issues. I am more patient and listen to the children and the minor squabbles do not bother me. He wants to jump right in and stop it. It bothers me when he does this is he is not even aware of the issue and sometimes causes more problems as a result.

Most of the time this works for us as both of us are participating at home chores as there is less misunderstanding of the amount of work involved caring for children and a home.
