My hubby's amazing. He's done EVERYTHING in the house for the past six weeks while I've been recuperating. He won't let me do any housework whatsoever until tomorrow (the six week point). He's done all of the cooking, every dish, housework, laundry, did the bulk of Christmas decorating, has made me breakfast every morning, carries my laptop upstairs at night and downstairs in the morning, won't let me do anything the least bit strenuous, or carry anything except a loaf of bread in from the car. I "graduated" to being able to pour my own glass of water from the Brita filter a few days ago (that thing's heavy!) He surpassed all my expectations, I figured he'd be good for 2-3 weeks, but at 4 weeks he decided (based on the advice of the doctor) that we'd give it 2 more weeks before I start doing anything. And he's done it all with such love, cheerfulness and joy!
He might have a hard time giving some of it up now, he's become the king of the kitchen!
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
