I am truly, deeply and profoundly happy.
Today I found a wife.
For years I have been lamenting that I do not have a wife.
The men I work with don't vacuum, dust, clean bathrooms, do laundry, mail packages, take dogs to vets, pick up drycleaning, go grocery shopping or do any of the mundane tasks I do in ADDITION to being a lawyer. They are just lawyers.
For years I have had to explain why I need to come in to work late, "Because I don't have a WIFE!"
That all changed today.
Liz came into my life today. She lives in the neighborhood, has great references, is competent, articulate, funny, loves my dogs, and asked permission to move the furniture when she vacuums so she can get the baseboards. Um, YES?!
For a mere $15/hour, Liz will do it all: clean, shop, run errands, take care of my dogs, do yardword, weld (yes I said weld - weld what I don't know - whatever needs welding I suppose), spackle, paint, fix stuff. She is the perfect wife.
Actually, she's even better. I don't even have to sleep with her.
