Mowing the lawn?? We both do ~ whoever has the most time when it needs to be done, I guess.

taking out the trash?? I usually do, but one of 8 yo DD's chores is emptying all the trash cans and pulling the trash bin to the curb on Thursday evenings. And 4 yo DS loves to carry out the trash! He can't open the lid to the bin, though.

washing clothes?? Me...this is such a never-ending job...

cleaning the kitchen?? Me ~ I can't stand being in the kitchen unless it's neat as a pin!

washing the cars?? Both of us.

bathing the pets?? Neither ~ the vet's wife does it for us!

making the bed?? Me. And the kids make their own beds.

hanging pictures?? Me.

moving furniture?? Me, but DH will do it if I ask.

bring home the bacon?? LOL! We both bring home the bacon!

cooking the bacon?? That's DH's job. He cooks the best bacon ever! I don't know how he cooks it so perfectly every time.

Mowing the lawn?? HUSBAND (he's too picky, he thinks he's the only one who can do it right... i say, knock yourself out!)

taken out the trash?? I take it out of the kitchen, he takes it to the road.

washing clothes?? Everyone washes their own in our house and we take turns doing towels.

cleaning the kitchen?? I clean the kitchen and my daughters too (when i can talk them into it)

washing the cars?? He takes them to a drive through. I do it every so often.

bathing the pets?? I bathe our dog... everyone else is afraid of getting soap in his eyes.

making the bed?? My husband makes the bed. He's the one who is so particular about it so i told him he can do it every day then.

hanging pictures?? I have to hang the pictures... he's not too good at technical stuff.

moving furniture?? I usually recruit my daughters to help me move it.

bring home the bacon?? We both bring home bacon...

cooking the bacon?? I definitely cook the bacon. He can't cook a lick. I've banned him from cooking since he caught our toaster on fire, caught Spaghettio's on fire and started a fire in the microwave because he left the twisty tie on a package of hamburger buns. lol

Hi Heather.... i'd love to know how he fries perfect bacon! Ask him if you can give us his secret... lol. I have tried and tried to fry great bacon but it turns out different every time i fry it. I've even tried baking it on a cookie sheet.
