My wife does EVERYTHING for me, and sometimes I wish she wouldn't, to be honest. I try to help, but she gets upset sometimes when I do because she feels like it's her job (?) and she is failing at it. She loves me, is pretty, the nicest person you'll ever meet, good sense of humor, is generous, cooks, cleans, irons my clothes, has my clothes ready including socks before I go anywhere, brings me my food and drink on a tray if I eat in my recliner, mows the yard (she won't let me mow, but I do the weedeating and use the blower), and the list goes on and on. I don't know what I did to deserve her, but I am honored to be her husband!

I do all the yard work. Mow, weed whack, rake, bag, broom. I also do all of the house and auto repairs. I cook every meal for DH. I fetch him ice for his drinks, his meals, and snacks (no tray due to table placement). I get him his towel and clothes for his shower, socks, boxers, and shoes included. I do his finger and toe nails as well as trim his beard and mustache. I do all of the dishes, laundry, sweeping, mopping, organizing, bill pays, taxes etc. I do all of the pet caretaking, as well. (3 dogs, a parrot, a tortoise, a cat, and a couple Beta fish)
I didn't even consider adding my total chores and duties as showing appreciation because I see it as my job. I'm SAHM. Other than working his job, why should he have to do anything? I was raised that a SAHM should have everything
but the actual for pay job under control.
