Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, each night we whisper to each other, "You're my best friend." I think this is the best way to end the day. Dear Epic Day of Sports, on Sunday the Cowboys and the Rangers played the Cardinals and the Rams. With wins from both local teams the spirits of the Texans were lifted high! Dear Chore List, sometimes I get overwhelmed when I look at you, but you're never as bad as I think you'll be. Thank you for teaching me about perseverance. Dear Emma, you make chalkboards out of little pumpkins. Where do you come up with these things?

What's your least favorite chore? I'm in charge of bathrooms & dusting while Em does the kitchen & vacuuming. There's nothing quite like having a teammate to divide the misery with!

Yep, hate the bathrooms...but I always want them clean!!!

I always clean the bathroom, and do the dishes. Vacuuming is left to everyone else!

Least favorites are bathroom and dishes.

LOVE vacuuming!

This is the second time you've mentioned your chore lists in as many posts. I would love to know how you set them up. Do you rotate?

I'm awful at keeping up on chores and we just did a major three+ hour clean on Sunday and I'd love to avoid having to keep doing these. Chore lists need to be implemented.

kate, our system is really simple. we're teammates in everything we do so most of the day to day we tag team. for example, with laundry we both start loads / fold clothes / put them away. we also tag team most of the cooking. we do have a system where whoever does the majority of the cooking doesn't have to wash dishes but just dries. as far as other chores go, we broke them up into 6 categories: kitchen, bathrooms, vacuuming, dusting, trash, and laundry room. tim picked 3 he wouldn't mind doing and i picked 3. i actually enjoy vacuuming while tim loves to do the bathrooms (bless that man!). i'm not super excited to do the kitchen, but tim isn't thrilled with dusting either. we both do our chores mostly because they need to get done, not because we love them. i do mine every friday morning, tim does his every sunday after church. there is a great book about cleaning and how to avoid the deep cleaning days if you'd like to take a look. it's a little on the cheesy side, but it's called sink reflections by marla cilley. let me know if you have any other questions! em

unloading the dishwasher...I'll do anything to get out of it.

see, i'm the opposite @meg. i'll do anything to avoid dirty dishes. i can handle clean ones all day long but the dirty ones gross me out hardcore.

and mr. loerke: "where do you come up with these things?" ha such a boy thing to say :)

I hate sweeping! And hand-washing dishes! Luckily, I have a hubs that doesn't mind either. Our chore list is pretty epic, but we manage to git 'er done with a little teamwork. Roommates whom you also love are pretty awesome. :)
