It's funny, a lot of men used to (some still do.) think that women were practically lounging all day, eating bon bons when they were keeping homes. I'm not even counting raising children.
If only those men would have had to run a house for a while, I think that they would have had a new respect for the women in their lives.
I made a mental list, and it included budgeting the whole house, keeping track of, organizing and shopping for all food, kitchen items, personal hygiene items, pet/child items, laundry items, Dh specific items, office-type items, gardening items, etc. etc.
And, that wouldn't count doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, doing dishes, sewing, feeding kids and pets, organizing schedules, taking animals and children to the vet/Dr., dealing with pet/child issues such as school, the dog swallowing something bad, planning and working on any get-togethers etc.
It reminds me of an old English novel!
