It was a simple question that required a simple "yes" or "no" answer. But really, the only acceptable answer was "yes!"
"Can you vacuum the bedroom carpet?"
It was the first time my husband -- the domestic guru -- has ever asked me to do anything around the house. This is after nearly 10 years of marriage.
Until recently, Mr. Perfect has done pretty much everything on his own -- the food shopping, the cooking, the cleaning, everything.
When I first started to do some food shopping and cooking, he admitted he felt a bit threatened. But he's quickly grown accustomed to coming home to a freshly cooked meal.
The only problem is that now he's starting to expect more of me -- not only does he want dinner on the table, but I'm getting the feeling that he wants the place to be clean and tidy too.
Is that too much to ask?
Definitely not. He's carried more than his weight for the last decade. I've got a lot of catching up to do!
Sure, I'll vacuum the carpet. But first I've got a few e-mails to return.
