OK, I admit it. I got very spoilt when Tony was not working for a year...not in the monetary sense, but in the fact that he did the housework, cooking and errands. I just had to go to work every day...Now not only is he back at work, but is on the road all week. I have to run my own errands, AND cook AND clean. Well, the last two weeks have been an eye opener for me in many ways. I realized how much I appreciate Tony for all he does/did. I also realize just how much I did when he was working (I work full time as well). Like most of us, I shouldered the majority of the duties around the house, and now we have come full circle. Please don't think I am whining...well maybe I am a little...I just have realized although last year was a tough one in many ways it was pretty terrific, too. I think we got closer in our marriage and I also think we now know we can get through anything as long as we have each other.
My big issue is when I have to do this:
Sister's Choice Quilts when she had a stash buster sale a week or so ago. I love this line of fabric (Leaving the Century/Barbara Brackman and Terry Clothier Thompson). I made my niece pinwheel quilt from it quite a few years ago and have always regretted not having more of it. Now I have lots and will need to make plans for this. It will be a quilt that I keep just so I can caress this fabric every day.
Now, off to vacuum, and let me tell you with a Golden Retriever, not vacuuming is not an option.
