I must add on to this thread as I have been thinking lately about how much better things are with just me and the kids:
1- 1/2 the cleaning
2- 1/2 the laundry
3- 1/2 the water bill
4- the laundry actually gets put away
5- 1/2 the grocery bill--i actually save 25 dollars a week from it and am using tit to replace all of the marital furniture!
6- Did I mention 1/2 the cleaning? What's funny is that people come over and comment how much better my house looks...I was married to a slob
7- I eat what I want to eat, not what he wants to eat.
8- The kids are actually bathed at night because I'm not waiting for him to do it
