Gutters, check.

There are certain common roles that perpetuate in our household.  I traditionally cook dinner and clean the house, and Matt mows the lawn and takes care of the general outside upkeep.

Since Matt started a new job those roles have been thrown out the window.  He travels a bit during the week and works from home the remaining days.  On days he is home he can do a few loads of laundry or start dinner before I get home with the kids.  Now if I could only train him to fold....... 

On my end today I climbed up on the roof to clean out the gutters.  Typically, this is my job since Matt is not too keen on high places.  I believe the gutters had not been cleaned since last fall so they were pretty gross.  With some help from Matt, on solid ground, we removed a sizable branch from an evergreen that was taking some liberties with our roof.  Despite the stinky mess in the gutter, once they were empty I found being above street level is quite therapeutic.  It provides another vantage point of scenes I stare at everyday.  It's also quite hilarious to see the look people's faces when they drive by and see me on the roof.

All clean!
