Whatever is happening at the moment, it changes so often in our household based on the kids schedules and our schedules....altough there are some constants.
LoL.....sounds like us.
"(or see that they get done, as the kids do a lot of it, too)."
That's what is nice about having kids, for a few years you get to delegate/manage. Then they up and leave you and you gain those chores back.
"Basically, as long as no one is sitting on the couch staring at the TV while the other one is running their tail off, we're good."
See, I don't have a problem with that. We do not both have to be busy at the same time to be sharing the load. Sometimes I may be busy and he is doing nothing, other times he may be busy while I am doing nothing.
I just never feel right sitting down reading the paper while DH is busy getting dinner, for example.
That's a good one. I agree.
I just came upon a chore that I will give 100% to DH, taking care of dead things.
I just mowed the lawn and discovered we have something dead in our back yard. It'll have to stay there until he gets home.
