Later this afternoon, the house will be quieter than it's been the past several days. Our daughters will be gone and so will the revolving door of friends who've been over to visit with them over the Thanksgiving holiday break.
It's not like there was wild partying going on, but there was plenty of entertaining and good times which to no one's surprise, left the house a lot less tidy than it was when they arrived. The girls are mostly like their Mother; they like things clean and orderly. Yet, they're not as obsessive about it as Diane, especially when their friends are around and everyone's having a good time.
Once their friends were gone, both girls expressed their willingness to help clean up the house, do laundry, etc. on several occasions. Each time though, Diane, dismissed their offers to help and told them to just relax and enjoy themselves. "Don't worry about it. We'll take care of it" She would say.
The "we" part of that statement was incorrect and both of us knew it. The cleanup would be my responsibility. It wasn't anything we had to discuss beforehand. It was understood and implicit in our relationship.
Diane's going to be taking the girls to the airport. Their flights are about an hour apart. While we live a suburb of the city where the airport is located, it's still about a 45 minute drive to get there.
Earlier this morning Diane gave me more specific instructions for this afternoon. She expects me toget into a maids uniform as soon as She leaves. There wasn't any indication that my getting all dressed up as a maid would lead to any "fun" when She gets back. She mentioned She might even go shopping after Her trip to the airport.
i was hoping i'd get a chance to watch some of the Packers and Patriots game this afternoon. It's unlikely. Between all the housework (dusting, cleaning the bathrooms, doing laundry, vacuuming, doing some floors, etc.) and getting dinner ready, i'm going to be pretty busy.
That's just the way it is when you're a sissy wife.
