Why does it have to be so difficult??!?

Here we go with my first vent!
I've been sitting here at home and haven't left the house for the past two days. Yesterday (Friday), dh had off. He was able to run several errands, but I never left the house at all. So today, I remember I have a friends & family 30% off coupon for the Gap that expires tomorrow and I wanted to hit Gap Outlet tonight. So we head out soon after dh gets home. I'm having a good time, even though the mall was PACKED, the kids are behaving pretty well, but dh is being a GRUMP, telling me to hurry up through each store. Excuse me? I've been stuck in the house for the past two days and am overJOYED at the chance to get out and breathe a bit, but now I'm being hurried along??? Thanks babe.
I understand that on dh's days off, he'd probably like to relax a bit, but I don't get "days off." I mean, I like having dh home on those days off, but he does absolutely NOTHING to help contribute to the household. So while he's "relaxing" at the computer or the television, I'm still dealing with all three kids, making meals, cleaning up and going about my normal routine. When do *I* get to relax??? For once, I'd love for him to suggest that we go out and do something as a family. When I suggest it, it's like pulling teeth to get him to have a good time!!!!! I told him tonight that I'd rather go to the mall ALONE with all three kids than have him prodding me along the entire time. I have no problem taking all three kids by myself to the movies, to the zoo, to the park, running errands, etc. But is it too much to ask to have dh join us and have a good time together as a family on those few days he does have off? *sigh*
