Claus just went on a trip for nearly three weeks. I was a single mother. In this time I started my job at KHON2.
What's more important, I feel, is to say that in this time I was able to keep the house REALLY CLEAN, work a full time job, and still take care of Olivia.
There were actually days when I came home from work and thought, "This house looks really good." That doesn't happen often - believe me. But it did during his trip!
The week he returned, the house fell to pot. He was jet lagged, I was dragging myself around because the accumulated fatigue of the schedule change was kicking my behind, and nobody was asking Olivia to pick up after herself and/or picking up after her.
The first day off I had, I spent two hours cleaning! I think this definitely settles this battle of the sexes, because for over a decade he's been insisting that I'm the messy one.
Men! We will have to revisit this accusation!
