At least I can lean against this pile of clean laundry.

Brian has been doing a lot of the cooking recently, and it really is saving me. On weekdays I'm leaving the house as early as 7:15 am and often am not back until almost 9:00 pm, so ... having dinner ready to go and lunches to take is a huge help. Tonight while he went off to see a midnight showing of The Avengers, I assembled my own dinner (it was fine) and then took on the laundry. Now it's 1:00, I've cleaned up the kitchen, and I have three loads to fold and put away, and sheets to put back on to the bed. There is also a dishwasher full of clean dishes, but they are going to stay there until tomorrow because after the laundry I will have no energy to spare.

Keeping up the house + 40-hour work weeks + the gym + commuting are adding up to a little too much, but fortunately not as nutty as graduate school. I did at least articulate that situation well last year. Anyhow, I plan to take some vacation time before and after Jason and Jason's wedding at the start of June, and that will certainly help.
