I have had a very down day today mostly because I mananged to do all the chores I really shouldn't do. Amazing how they still need to be done! At least I am in a better mood because my house is nice again. I am thinking of putting together a list for my dh. He has been really swamped lately, but he still has 5 minutes to give me if he really thinks about it. Here is what I have so far...notice they are all pretty much household chores.... Please add your own.<br><br><b>It takes 5 minutes to:</b><br>
-Empty the dishwasher<br>
-Clean the guest bath<br>
-Clean our bath<br>
-Fold a load of towels...may even have time to put them away<br>
-Water the plants in the front and back<br>
-Vacuum the living room and hallway<br>
-Straighten up child's room<br>
-Sweep or mop the kitchen<br>
-Put away the clean clothes from the laundry roon<br>
-Put all dirty clothes in the hamper...or...better yet...take them to the laundry room<br><br><b>It takes a little longer to:</b><br>
-Help child clean the playroom

hold me because just because I have a big belly and sex doesn't seem all that great right now doesn't mean you don't have 5 minutes to hold me close, tell me you love me and tell me how beautiful you think I am.

Flip the laundry from washer to dryer (incresaingly more difficult with this belly I am rocking)<br>
Sweep the stairs inside or outside<br>
Those are the two I have right now.

I want take away so bad tonight. I cringe everytime I look at the stove. Usually I love to cook but for some reason I am in no mood to today. I want Thai take away and I may have to call DH and clue him in, since as he has reminded me he is not a mind reader!!

My suggestion for my husband - just ASK what I need help with! Just ASK and I'm sure I can find a super small, quick and easy "thing" that I haven't had time to fool with yet. JUST ASK!

I do...A LOT. My problem is that I haven't seen a whole lot of him lately. Hopefully, that will mean that we have extra money for the baby...in a dream world.
