Indentured

Sometimes I feel like Wife only keeps me around to do the shit work.  In fact, there are certain chores she refuses to learn how to do.   No matter how often I say, “hey honey, let me me show you how to do that”, she rebukes and refuses to learn.   Some of the things I can understand.   I really don’t want her to mow the grass, and I really would never ask her to.  

These are:

  • Using bleach in the washing machine
  • Changing light bulbs
  • Lighting the grill
  • Starting the lawn mower
  • Posting pictures/videos online 
  • Seasoning food (without use of a recipe)
  • Mopping floors
  • Cleaning windows/mirrors
  • Dusting

Yes, a lot of these are the menial household tasks that NONE of us like to do.  And I am not saying because the is the wife that she is relegated to cleaning the house all the time.   But, it would be nice, especially now that we have Junior (and a clean house is a healthy house) if she would OCCASSIONALLY dust.  Or mop.

I guess there are few things that I avoid too, like laundry.   In general.   I loathe the washing, drying, anf especially the folding of clothes, and am glad she is able and willing to tackle that task alone.
