A logical division of labor

During Standard Time, my husband does most of the preparation and cooking for Shabbat/Sabbath because, even though my Jewish employer closes the office early, it's difficult for me to get home with enough time to spare for cooking.

During Daylight Savings Time, or, at least, at the beginning thereof, I do most of the preparation and cooking for Shabbat, because the beginning of Daylight Savings Time coincides with "tax season" in the U.S., and my poor husband the Certified Public Accountant is usually up to his eyeballs in tax returns to be completed and submitted.

During the late spring and summer, in between tax seasons, we usually share the prep and cooking, and can often be found tripping over each other in our not-so-big kitchen.  :)

Now, if only we could find a way not to share one another's cold germs . . .
