Thanks for the tips! I'll see about getting some powdered detergent (Arm & Hammer is a good call, probably easier to find unscented) to bring along. I'll probably practice at home a couple of times to make sure I know how much to rinse to get the detergent out. I'd like to have some wool clothing with me as wool drys much faster than cotton.
Ze mood plummets once again as I arrive home from work and find the sink full of last night's dishes. Why am I so sensitive?

I really want to vent about Hulky right now because I'm upset right now but I know I would regret it later. I also know it would not be productive and I'd be unlikely to get any positive feedback.

I'm sorry! Just stumbled on your journal. You're right in that if you put all "your business" out there, you'll likely regret it and some moron on this site will make you feel worse. Maybe you can type it up and then delete it? Sometimes that helps. Anyway, sending a hug your way or a punch to him - whichever is more helpful to you. ;-)
Sorry, Tasha. Could be part of what you're going through is just the learning how to be a "partner" thing. I know you lived together for a couple years before you got married - but was it always you doing the cleaning and domestic type stuff??? Has Hulky every lived alone and had to shop and clean and DO all for himself??? If not - then he needs to learn how before he will just do it automatically. Some guys just aren't wired for the domestic stuff and it just doesn't even cross their minds to do - they honestly don't even SEE that the dishes need to be done or the floors are dirty.......... They need to develop the eye for it - and that comes only with 1. the desire, 2. the right kind of "mentoring". Hope you can get it worked out.

Did you go to Boots? Superdrug? Or any supermarket at all? Or the department stores that stock towels - BHS, M&S, Debenhams, John Lewis - and look around you?
The fridges are small compared with US/Aus, I grant you. Houses in general are smaller than you are likely used to...but flannels are rare? Come on now.
