How much time is really needed to keep a household running?
I don't know if I was terrible housekeeper and was doing less the other people or an outstanding housekeeper and just plain did it quicker. But I had no problem getting housework/lawnwork/laundry done during the day while DH was at work. Our weekends and evenings were pretty much free for both of us with the exception of meal prep and meal clean-up. The only time it was a problem was when I had a little one and could not do the lawn work without someone to watch then so then we did that evenings/weekends and immediately after giving birth and I was in the recovery stage.
That was the one thing that we both miss with me going back to work, we both have less free time now then we did then.
