The girls are off to grandmas house for the summer so it's only the hubby and I for a whole month! As much as we love our girls and we do genuinely love their company, the dynamics of our interaction really changes when they are out of the house.
It's been two weeks since they left and during that time I cooked a total of 4 times, hubby cleaned the house twice, and we've only done laundry three times! We've gone out to eat at least five times (yikes!), gone to the grocery store twice, and only wash dishes once a day sometimes not even. You don't realize how much chore it is to keep a house until you are freed from doing some of them. When the girls are home, we run at least two loads of laundry a day, wash dishes twice a day, sometimes three, cook at least seven times a week, mop the floors three times a week, fold laundry everyday, and clean the bathrooms every other day. Oh, and take the trash out everyday. We hadn't had to take trash out but once a week, on trash day. Whew!!
So what do we do with our free time? We treat ourselves like kings and queens. We come home at the end of the day and take a refreshing drink out to the garden where we sit and relax until we get hungry. When we're hungry, we get to cook what we feel like eating, be as spicy as we wanna be ;), or as sinfull as we want to be :D (I'm talking about food, people).
