A Well-Kept Household

Ever since we got back from our vacation, I've been running around nonstop. Work is really kicking my butt.

So I leave early each morning, and I come home late each night. I haven't had time to do much else outside of work.

In contrast, the Husband is in between jobs now, so he's had a lot of time on his hands.

He called me at work the other day.

"I've done a lot today," he said. "I went grocery shopping, and I went to the Post Office and mailed those packages. And I did 5 loads of laundry. And I called the super about the leaky faucet in our bathroom. And I went through the pile of old newspapers and took them downstairs to the recycling bin. Oh, and your suits came back from the dry cleaner. . . .

. . . And I decided to move the bookshelf from the living room into the bedroom, where I think it looks better. And I pushed back the couch toward the corner. It really opens up the entryway!"

When I got home, he was very proud of what he'd done, and showed me the new configuration of the aforementioned furniture.

If he'd brought me my slippers and a pipe, and offered to rub my feet, it would have been perfect!
