Happy Spouse Happy House

I may ruffle some feathers with this one and that is perfectly okay with me. I posted on Insta the other day about happy spouse happy house and I whole heartedly agree with it. This isn’t Happy Wife Happy Life. Why should it only be a one way road? It shouldn’t. Y’all are a team, therefore you should both be taking care of each other. You spoil them and they spoil you. Share the load. You have to work together like a well oiled machine. Alex works outside the house. He does factory work. I work from home writing and running our blog and social medias. Most of the time I cook for us mainly because I love cooking. That doesn’t mean that he won’t because if I am deep into writing he will cook for me. We share laundry. If the clothes basket is full then who ever notices it starts it and whoever notices the washer is done switches it over to the dryer. We fold together. I do most of the cleaning of the house only because I need to keep myself busy while he sleeps or I want to wake him up to spend time with him. If I can’t write I clean. Its just how it works for us. The way we do things may not be what works for everyone, but to think that your man should spoil you while you do nothing in return for him is selfish. Its a selfish way to think about life. It speaks volumes as to who you are as a person. I also don’t at all mean that by spoiling I mean buying gifts either. Be there for you other half by everything. They had a hard day let them vent it out to you. Give them massages. Write them a sweet little just because note. Tell them how much you appreciate them and what they do for you. A thank you once in a while goes a long way. It means that you see what they do for you. Like you don’t expect them to do all the things they do for you on a regular basis. Random hugs and kisses. I almost always pack Alex his dinner for work. The reason I do this for him is that I am so very grateful that he lets me work from home to work on my dreams. He knows if I had a full time job I couldn’t focus on my writing as often as I do right now being at home full time. I set at least 4 hours a day focused on my writing. Weather that means that I am writing, brainstorming, researching, or editing. As more and more of my words fill the blank pages the more I am so proud of myself. I appreciate that he works overtime so that we can do some extra things once in a while.
