I NEED a housewife

Or a house husband. I'm not picky or gender biased. Today was an off day for me, as in I was off. OK not really off so much as called in sick. If you want the gorey details at around 7pm last night my gastrointestinal system staged a coup. It decided that it was no longer willing to be part of the team and went all bad on me. I managed about 4 hours of sleep last night and just did not feel the need to in today. It happens, you take life as it comes.

This did not mean I wasn't ok today, I just wasn't ok enough to get up at an early hour and drag my ass into work and be productive. Instead I dragged my ass out of bed at like 10 am and was productive with home stuff. No, I did not clean the house. I was not feeling that energetic, please. I took care of things that needed to be taken care of. The dogs slept. When someone is home the only difference is that they sleep on the couches rather then their crates. Lazy bums.

Which leads me to the topic at hand, I need a house wife. Seriously folks I had a list of things that needed to get done.
1. Pick up package from the post office
2. Make a birthday card for my dad
3. Mail birthday card and letter the hubby wrote to the kid
4. Get gas for the hubby's car (which he left for me so I could do #5 and #6)
5. Get the hubby's car it's annual inspection/smog thing done
6. Take said proof of inspection and register the hubby's car

It took like 3 hours and this was all stuff that had to be done asap since it's the 1st of July and that's when it needs to be done. Well the package thing, that's just because I don't know how long the post office will hold something before they send it off into no man's land. This is the hubby's paintball gun returning from the repair shop, I know he'd be pissed if that got lost.

And all this got done only because I was at home 'sick'. Good thing I felt better today huh?

PS: don't ever, as in DO NOT EVER Google image the phrase 'housewife'. It's all porn, swearsies. Just do me a favor and don't do it.

I'm lucky. The Husband mostly takes care of things like this because I'm a Major Procrastinator and that To Do list of yours? Those are the kinds of things I would sit on for YEARS. No joke.

Although, your husband bakes, which is way too good to be true.

Yeah if I didn't do these things they wouldn't get done. Period. Last year he got a ticket for expired inspection stickers. I asked him 3 weeks ago when his plates expired so he knew when the due date was, he just didn't do what needed to be done. If it were up to him it would take YEARS. That's why I'm in charge of everything. Doesn't make me happy even though he does bake.

I have a house husband but he is horrible about cleaning the house. He's pretty good about cooking, if you like the same ole thing, but I have always said that everything tastes better if I don't have to cook it. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook but only if I have the time. He does however, take care of lots of errands which is very handy.
