What do the mice do when the cat is away/asleep? Well they play. What if we apply this logic to our daily life? Being the wife to a sales manager who travels 22 days a month, I know the pain of making sure enough clothes are ready to be packed, they are washed on time and more over they are rotated properly.
When I got the Ariel pack, I wrote to the husband, “Be ready for learning how to use the washing machine ;) Let us #sharetheload.” He was on a work trip so he replies to the texts rather late and I have got used to it.
However his last trip was rather long, I had not seen him for about 7 days. We chatted till 2 am and then dozed off. The next morning, post the walk, I took a nap and I woke up for find a series of selfies on my phone.
The nap was interrupted by a loud thud. I woke up, startled. When I peeped in the dry area, I found the husband with a bucket of water, testing the clothes for a leak of color <3. He had dropped the bucket, looked at me, smiled and started mopping it all up.
On any other day, I would have got mad at him but today I decided against it and went off to the kitchen to cook up something that we both love. :)
This wash Bucket challenge reminded me a few things:
- The Husband watches and learns the chores, damn well.
- It is very easy to see the incorrect before the correct.
- Couples that share a smile together will wipe a tear together, as well.
So what did you learn from the #sharetheload?
