Wife Jobs

As I'm sure many of you have noticed.. I suck at doing my wife jobs.. cooking, cleaning, laundry, dishes, etc.  I do dishes maybe once a week..and I cook the occasional meal but that really is the extent of it.
When Adam and I first got married this drove him crazy, he couldn't understand why I, the wife, the homemaker, wasn't doing laundry and cleaning up.  And there was me, completely clueless on why he was so upset.  I really don't mind doing laundry, I just don't think about it.. and I really don't mind cleaning up - he is just better at it. :)  He used to be embarrassed at the fact that he was doing the "wife jobs" and hated when I told people, but he soon learned that girls eat it up!  I was recently asked "How did you get him to do it, my husband would die!"  Honestly.. I think he just got sick of me not doing it, and decided it was easier to do it himself rather than argue with me.  He has found one advantage... he knows EVERYTIME I buy something new.  When he does the laundry he sees what comes through and if I pull the "Oh, I've had that for years!" trick, he knows I'm a liar.  I am not proud to say that Adam is the better of us, but I am proud to say I married an AMAZING guy.  I am so blessed.. he however, got the short end of the stick.  Sometimes I joke that I need to step it up and take care of my man so he doesn't leave me and his reply is always the same.. "Financially... it just wouldn't make sense."  So there you have it... He stays with me for my money, and I stay with him to be fed and clothed.  :)  Really though?  We are such a happy couple and although we've had rough patches in the past, we are more in love than ever.   

If anyone has something they want me to answer, post it below and it will be tomorrow's post!


  1. lol. Cam is the best "housewife" ever. Laundry, dishes, etc. I do cook...but that's about it. I'm hoping me staying at home will change that a bit. I'd really like to do it!

  2. I'm guilty as well! I'm a spoiled brat ... my hubby does all the cooking!

  3. Here is a question...
    When are you two coming to Vegas? I need me some Courtney time. We wont be making a Utah trip in a while. Or better yet, when are we doing our couples weekend?! haha Weren't we suppose to do that almost 2 years ago now?!
    I remember when we stayed at your house back when, and you would always say how Adam does all the house work. You guys crack me up. But at least, you bring home the bacon. :)
