So I have a chalkboard in my house. On it, I write my daily chores and errands I need to do/run so I don’t forget something. I erase the chores when I’ve finished and I legitimately enjoy it. It makes me feel productive and happy. Plus my house is cleaner, and that’s always great.
I put up the chalkboard last year and write things like sweep, mop, grocery shop, clean bathrooms, etc. Well one day I wrote a list a little longer than usual. It had a lot of errands and chores on it and Mr. Blue Eyes came up behind me and sighed. Like a big sigh.
The list looked something like this:
*make baby food
*clean fridge + kitchen
*take trash out
I do about 85% of the chores and errands. I have more time than Mr. Blue Eyes because he works full time + over time and I only work part time. But when I make these lists he acts like it’s hard for him. He sees it as so much more he has to do even though I end up doing everything on them. He’s not a list guy. Guess you might have figured that out? Anyways.
I walked out of the room to start the first thing on the list. I think it was clean bathrooms. I left the windex in the kitchen. As I walked back I saw an addition on the list. At the bottom in little capital letters Mr. Blue Eyes had added “F**K”. I rolled my eyes and laughed. *Wait.. how long has it been??* Sometimes between taking care of the house, baby, working, etc. I forget about sex. At that point it had been two days. I felt better after I realized it hadn’t been too long.
Normally I end up doing my chores in order, but not this time. I finished cleaning the bathroom, got the baby to sleep and f***ed my man. I think he enjoyed crossing it off the list.
