Marriage 401, Lecture 487: Home work
The nice thing about being the person who leaves the house to go to work every day is that I am now the person who can expect the person who stays at home to do chores.
I come home from work now to find the bed made, the dishes done, the cats fed, the litterbox cleaned, the mail brought in and sorted, and the recycling emptied.
I also have discovered that if I leave a note, a magic elf takes care of other chores: returns books to the library, picks up groceries, and goes to Walgreen's for sudafed and feminine products.
I like delegating. My magic elf is doing a great job and I think I might be able to expand his services to doing the occasional load of laundry.
