When I was single, I worked long hours. Housekeeping was something that got done when there was time. The dishes stayed in the dishwasher, the laundry never got out of the basket, the place was clean, and not too messy. You probably could drop by unannounced, but I would need a few minutes to clean up.
Things have changed, dramatically. No more clothes strewn around the bedroom floor, the dishwasher is emptied regularly. The laundry is done on time, folded and put away while still warm. The magazines, papers, and books are all tidied up and the floor is regularly vacuumed.
Drop by anytime, the place is clean!
Sure I love to cook, and he gets a homecooked from scratch meal almost everyday. But vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, doing the laundry everytime there are dirty clothes, Emptying the dishwasher, every day! Wow, who is taking care of all that?
It must be the laundry guy. Because I sure know for sure that it's not me.
