Division of Labor
In this house there is a certain division of labor. I do most of the inside chores and the Farmer Man does most of the outside chores. Yes, it is a rather antiquated system, but we end up doing things that we like. My wine providing, high school French teacher once told her class that she and her husband divided the chores into, "water chores and non-water chores". We are not quite that fair, but after 27 years of marriage our system works for us.
Let's take this weekend's chores, for example.....
This guy decided to take possession of a friend's fallen Oak tree. Though he rented a splitter to make the job easier, it has still taken three days worth of work to prep all of this wood.
I did 11 loads of laundry instead......
