I'm in my 50s, but my kids are all young, so here's a bump.

I do, as I did when the kids WERE home.  I don't work outside the home, he works long erratic hours.

We have a lawn service, and a housekeeper every other week for deep cleaning. No snow to remove here.  I also do all the shopping, cooking, bill paying, errands and so on.

I still work part time and my husband is retired. He does most of the grocery shooping, deciding what to cook and the cooking.
I do most of the other housework. We botb garden but he does most of the outdoor stuff.
He is very handy so he keeps everything in good repair.
It all seems to work out for us.

I've always done the housework even before we had kids so I assume I'll do it once the kids are gone.

Older?  What does that have to do with cleaning?  Anyway you need an other option.  I have a cleaning lady.  She does the majority of the cleaning and all the laundry with the exception of daily stuff like loading and unloading dishwasher and straightening up.  Landscapers do the lawn and pool guy does the pool.
