As I said, I'll be out of town for the next 4 days. I could be worried about the state of our house when I return, but I am so lucky that my husband is so helpful with household chores.
Crap. Did I refer to Ike as my husband again? I've got to stop doing that.
Anyway, in addition to leaping up to the sink to help with the dishes/snag some leftovers, Ike is also a pro at loading the dishwasher.
He loves laundry day - he will come running from across the house if he hears the word "laundry"... although I think that has more to do with the fact that he gets to go outside (our washer and dryer are in the garage).
And he's been a huge help in my packing process. This morning while I was packing, he brought me a sock and dropped it in my suitcase. He looked pretty crestfallen when I gave it back to him.
And, um, Y's not bad around the house either... I guess.
