He mows the yard when I threaten to hire someone and empties the kitchen trash when it starts to overflow. He works evenings but prefers to either be sleeping or playing his xbox, will likely be xh soon if he doesn't do a 180.

Garbage, Dishes (including dishwasher load/unload), his laundry (he ruins all my clothes), any repairs outside, lawn, toilet (I don't pee on it, so I don't clean it), pick up after himself!

It varies depending on each of our given workloads each week, but he does most of the housework (I work full time and he recently went back to school, so he has at least a bit more time than I do).

I do the dishes.  I usually fold the laundry.  I tidy.  He does pretty much everything else unless I get into a cleaning fit.

I'm a tree-hugging, breastfeeding, non-circing, vaxing, co-sleeping/bed-sharing, ethical eating, nearly vegan, home-birthing, Pagan, Unitarian Universalist, pro-choice, cloth diapering, Scorpio, feminist, half-Canadian, animal activist mommy to one clever little girl (10), the cutest little boy ever born (2), two mischevious rescue mutts (fixed), and an attention starved rescue kitty (also fixed).  Married to my own personal MacGyver.

Whatever I don't get around to doing, trash, and lawn.

He put the dishes in the dishwasher, and puts them away when they are done. He takes out the garbage, brings the garbage cans to the road on garbage pick up day, and brings them back where they belong after it's been picked up. He also takes care of the lawn, and anything else that has heavy lifting involved.
