Hubby and I have always had an understanding about who does what in our relationship – he puts the food on the table – and I do everything else! (I jest – well just a little)
Hubby does indeed bring in the doe. It is his job to bring in the clients and deal with them. I run the company from the back.
My job also includes the following:
I am responsible for the kids which includes schooling, sporting activities and extra mural activities
I run the house
I do all the shopping and buy the groceries and any other items required in the house, or by hubby or kids or maid or gardener
I deal with all medical issues
I pay the bills and do the accounts
I prepare and cook all meals
And when the maid is not around – I clean
I know this list may sound biased but I bet if hubby was making a list, his would be biased as well. But there is a reason why I do certain things and one of them is why I do all the shopping.
I always have a stash of earbuds. I buy a small packet approximately every 6 months. When we are about to run out, I buy some more.
Hubby went shopping with me last week and he noticed I had earbuds on my list. So off he troddles down the earbud aisle while I was getting something else and he reappears with 8 huge bags of earbuds. I politely explained that we don’t need this meany and they would last for about 4-5 years, but he didn’t want to know. He insisted that at least we now have them and I don’t need to buy any more for awhile.
And then he offered to go and find the toilet rolls…..
