Am I The Only One?

Who ...

- wipes the table after a meal (or before)
- ditto the stove and counter tops
- notices the trash pail needs to be cleaned and cleans it
- vacuums
- gets rid of stuff
- picks up and puts away loose clothing and shoes
- changes the sheets
- ditto the toilet paper and paper towel rolls
- buys toilet paper, tissues and paper towels without fanfare
- locks the door at night
- gives a damn
- closes the window when the rain is coming in
- bears the brunt
- puts gas in the tank
- makes sure the homework is done, the bathing suits and soccer shoes fit
- empties the dishwasher
- cries alone in frustration
- hides her favourite desserts (so she can be sure there will be some left when she is finished doing all of the above)?

No, no, I didn't think so.

No you are not the only one. but perhaps in your house you are!
I liked the bit about hiding the dessert - good on you! That is the healthy part of you looking out for you as well as all those others.
