Role Reversal

Husband and I seemed to have changed roles recently. Husband is now the one working on his Master’s. He just started his program a couple weeks ago. So, last night, he was the one glued to the computer, reading his assignments, with a furrowed brow and an occasional sigh. Unfortunately, my Master’s concentration is not related to his, so the only practical help I could offer was showing him where to order cheap books (like half.com). And, today, we changed roles again. Husband had the day off, since it’s a federal holiday. But I had to go to work. I think that this is the first time in our marriage that I had to work on a day that he had off. I came home from work, announcing, “Hi, honey, I’m home! What’s for dinner?” And I got my answer when I smelled freshly-grilled fajitas. These new roles don’t seem so bad after all.

Sure I like a man in uniform, but NOTHING beats a man in an apron. ;)

Congrats to him on starting his Masters! And wow, fajitas? Like homemade dinner? My husband would have either a) gone to Taco Bell, b) ordered pizza or chinese, or c) heated up a frozen burrito and dumped salsa on it for a "homemade touch".

You have a winner!!!!

I love it when my husband plays the housewife role. He's so much better at it than I am :) Now if only I could make as much as he did working...
