One way to break the tedium of chores is to make a list of them, and time how long they take, and make slips of paper (or cut up a few index cards) with each chore and how long it takes written on it.
As a SAHM, it's probably reasonable that she do more housework than you, so maybe agree on a ratio of 2-1 or something. Add up all the minutes on the chores to see what you get. Say it comes to 6 hours a week; what you do is pull slips out of the hat until the times add up to 2 hours. Then she gets the four hours that are left.
Next week, you do it again. That way, at least, there's a variety.
