  • Laura's husband and mine must be brother's. (Mine isn't military though) I do 99% of the shopping and all the bill paying. If I send my husband to the store for milk and bread it will cost at least $50!!

  • I grocery shop, hubby does bills. I am not capable of keeping up with all the bills. I suck in that department. And he hates being inside grocery stores.

  • I do all the bills. I don't even think my husband knows what bills we have!
    I also do all the shopping. He hates it, and is anti-social, so crowds annoy him. I kind of like the time alone!
