Subject: Do something!
I’m tired of doing everything around this house. I do the laundry every Wednesday. I do the dishes after every meal. When it’s tax time, I do the taxes. I even do your hair for you when you have to do business with an important client. What do you do for me? I know you do the yard work, but there’s not much to do around the yard in the winter.
Can you do me a favour? Help out a little! Do a little housework on the weekend. If you get home first, do the cooking! (And I will do likewise.)
Whatever you do, do something!
Esteban Rayo says:
I’m tired to do all the things at home. I just arrived home, and I realized that I have to do the laundry and do the dishes.
Moreover, these last months, I’ve been doing the taxes and the garden. I would be very grateful if you could do more things, such as doing the bathroom or making the bed.
I think that if we want to live together, we need to accord these kinds of things.
