How Can I Help You?

How can I help you?

My wonderful husband uttered those 5 magic words yesterday evening as we were making supper together. He has always been quick to help with chores around the house and offer to do things to make my life easier (his parents raised him well!) but we have a pretty even split most of the time. I take care of most of the cleaning and house stuff while he takes care of outside and most of our finances. 

Just this week, though, he started a new project at work that has him working four 10-hour days instead of five 8-hour days. This allows him an entire day off to do whatever his heart desires, and what does my sweet husband ask? How he can help me. Did I luck out or what?! There are a few random things he can do to simplify my life and allow us more time together over the weekend, but I'm going to do my darnedest not to make a long "honey-do" list and scare him off from ever asking again;-)


  1. You seriously did get lucky! Can he have a talk with my husband? HA!

  2. Hahaha..I second what Tamara had to say! Van is wonderful and all...but helping around the hizzouse is NOT his strong suit. You are a lucky, lucky lady! :)
