I had Saturday off at the store, so I spent the whole day doing housewifey things.
Ian went off to do errands after he helped put all the groceries away. We also had lunch together.
While he was gone, this was what I got done:
1 loaf of bread, baked
4 loads of laundry, sorted, washed, dried, folded
2 lasagnas (with real noodles, not bake-only noodles), compiled, frozen, put away
1 carrot cake made from scratch (it's a layer cake, so I also made homemade cream cheese icing), baked, assembled, iced
1 pot of baked potato soup*, assembled, simmered, partially eaten
about 30 koteletes (yummy panfried meatloaf patties), mixed, formed, fried, drained, frozen
12-13 sinkloads of dishes, washed, dried, put away
When Ian came home, he ironed and helped with the dishes.
So now my freezer is fuller. Yay!
And I calculated that it was an 8-hour workday, but working for your family is immensely more satisfying than working for someone else.
