Spring can’t be far away

We’re down to one stubborn patch of icy snow in the yard, much to the dismay of my dogs. For frou-frou divas, they really love snow.

Tiny patch of snow in the yard

The good news? The snow is gone and spring is coming. The bad news? My husband’s going to want to do that whole yard work thing soon. With the rake and the bags and the weeding.

So not my thing.

    I don’t do the whole yard work thing either so you are absolutely not alone in that. Happy to say my Husband knows that if I don’t want to I’m not gonna do it!

    My husband usually starts and then I feel guilty I’m not helping, so I go out, too. Damn guilt.

    I never feel guilty, my moto is if I do all the inside stuff then he can do all the outside stuff :)

    Since that’s our usual division of labor, you are absolutely right. The leaves and weeds are definitely outside stuff! When he vacuums and does a load of laundry, maybe I’ll feel guilty about the raking.

    I will never have to worry about that, in the almost 7 years we’ve been together I’ve never seen him use the vacuum.

    Unfortunately, my hubby WILL do a load of laundry and do the dishes, so I have to feel the guilt and help! LOL

    We still have quite a bit of snow left in our yard, so we won’t be raking anytime soon. Our front yard faces North so it can take some time. Plus, we just got more snow last week and it only got warm enough to met it two days ago. I need to be patient–but I am SO ready for the white stuff to be GONE!

    I read it right the first time! Lol. I usually read typos correctly, I’m special like that. Even after we moved and got a dishwasher his dishes still can’t find their way into the dishwasher.
