Ill clean the whole apartment, which really is not that big however when every dish in the place is dirty, towels are everywhere, the hamster cages smell, and nothing is where it should be it seems giant! When I start to slack on my job he doesn't help out at all. I am going on strike and posting notes of what needs to be done but if not what do I do.? I asked him to fold laundry once and he said that after working in merchandise he hates folding clothes. There is a pile of clean laundry just chillin on the floor now. We have an ant problem, I don't want to do dishes because there are bugs all over them, I politely asked him to wash them a week ago....... As for our pets, looking up my cage seems to be the only clean one. When I do find extra time to clean it's when he is asleep and being in a studio, he cant sleep while I am cleaning!

I would keep cleaning when he is asleep and wake him up.
I really think you need to sit down and have a talk. Let him know that even though you are at home, you need help getting everything done. My husband and I have always had the agreement that one person cooks and the other person does the dishes. My husband also does his own laundry as well as our daughter's while the older children do their own and I do mine.
Maybe sit down and work out a bit of a roster or what things he can help with.
