    I am the official spider and bug killer!

    I also have to clean up the "dog yard".:spit:

    I take out the trash.

    I schedule the cars maintainence and take them in for service.

    I mow the lawn, and rake the leaves.

    I mostly (snow)shovel the drive and walkways.

    I do the "heavy lifting" around the home in regards to moving stuff around the house.

    I clean the garage.

    My wife does, (bless her heart) usually cleans up the occasional dog puke.

    What else is there?
     
  2. The usual stuff like cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, etc.

    I went to a very good friend's wedding in Florida this past weekend. (The good thing)

    As we got off the plane, a mutual friend who was also on the flight, although I didn't know it at the time, introduced me to his girlfriend.

    No big deal, right?

    Well, the last time I saw him about 2 years ago, he was still with his WIFE!!! :eek:

    He's been with the new girlfriend for about a year now.

    One wedding = good.
    One divorce = not so good.

    As Judy Collins once sang, "Something's lost and something's gained from living everyday."

    C'est la vie.

  10. Well, I'm not single. Live in gf, and it's my house. I do 90% of all cleaning/cooking. I also make sure to make the sink dirty after I've been outside working on one of the motorcycles :p

    Ah yes, the life of a Rogue.

    It may be forever. Then again, maybe not. When you wake up in the morning, and see that wide open blue sky out there, and you know you don't owe that day to anybody, it's a great feeling. Don't fret(hah!) the loneliness.

    I've been married 11 years. I have never been happier.
