I take it Josh, that in your tight schedule there's no need to make room for stopping at the grocery store for something to throw in the oven while you fold that last load of t-shirts and socks after assisting with Algebra II homework. Oops! @%#* forgot to pay the electric bill. Here, let me sign your permission slip, no, you can't go over to Tommy's, did you say we're supposed to bring a dish to pass to Lasken's, I'll press your pants as soon as I'm done here....
LOVE my husband but what I need is a wife...LOL
Well, the [soon-to-be] Mrs works Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, and our son goes to day care on Tuesday and Friday, so she takes care of him more than I do. She tends to do more of the laundry but if I want to have food to eat at night + leftovers to eat at school, then I better have time to cook.
I consider cooking my downtime for the day.
Sometimes she will meet me at the gym, other times I will have to go solo. It's better when she goes because it gives us another hour of quality time during the day, although I lift better solo.
Once we have a few more kids, things are going to get more tight. Luckily, the new gym we joined [sure, belonging to three different gyms is totally normal] is completely set up for families. I used to think these kinds of gyms were a monumental waste of money, but once you have kids, they are amazing.
Edit: the price might be a turnoff, but seriously, I would rather spend money on a good gym then cable television...which would lead to me sitting on my butt more.
