I’m a little disappointed really. This isn’t an isolated incident between me and my husband, there are a lot of other people out there experiencing this, so I wanted to share our solution so lets get down to the nitty gritty about chores.
- I split up the days between me and my husband. Since there are only two of us and seven days in a week that insured that we would get different chores every week.
- I assigned a chore to each day. Living room every Monday, Garbage on Tuesday, Laundry on Wednesday and so on and so forth.
- Then we agreed that every day that we didn’t have a chore, we would make dinner. So on Monday when I was cleaning the living room my husband was making me dinner (Tacos, nom nom!)
- Last but not least, the dishes in our house are out of control. I don’t know how it happens since there are only four of us and we aren’t home during the day most days, but it does. We decided to do dishes every night after dinner together.
There are several good things about doing house work together. You get a chance to talk about your day, and talking, as we all know, is good for the relationship and you have an odd sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. Plus don’t forget that you’re not sitting in a trash heap that you call home.
