Man's jobs

I know these days there's lots of people who don't subscribe to the "men's jobs" and "women's jobs" type of thinking, but I'm so glad my Hubby takes care of the outdoor seasonal chores. I have never had to mow the lawn. He actually enjoys yard work so it's never an issue. Last week he blew all the water out of the sprinkler system and turned it off so the pipes don't burst over the winter. He also got the swamp cooler ready for winter by turning it all off and getting it all wrapped up. In the spring he had to replace air filters or gears or something on it too. I'm so glad he does it because it's on top of our roof and that's pretty dang high. He also gets up there at Christmas time to put up lights. That really scares me because when's it covered in snow and ice it can be very slippery and I'm always worried until he comes back in safely. I will gladly do the majority of laundry, dishes, and vacuuming as long as I never have to set foot on the roof lol.
