I have been more fortunate than many in that I have a husband who does 99.9% of all household tasks. He washes the dishes, does the laundry, vacuums, dusts, goes grocery shopping, you name it and he does it. I have had this wonderful man doing so many household jobs for me for over 15 years. It has worked for us. I have had longer hours out of the house than him so it just followed that he took on more of the household jobs. Plus, he is so much better at it than me. Organizing, planning, decorating I love. Cleaning? Not so much!
Now this summer I find myself with a husband who is working 10-12 hour days 6 days per week. He is not home much. And when he comes home he is tired and needs a break. He has earned it.
I find myself doing dishes today. There is little I like to do less than wash dishes. Unless it is vacuuming, dusting, you get the idea. But these are changing times and I, I am diving in, soap suds and all. Wish me luck!
