Whenever the mood strikes. Usually around 7 or 8. Often I skip it altogether.

I dont use the kitchen. Ever.

Depends on what is going on. Sometimes between 5-6, other times after 7.

Cooking also depends on the day. We both cook

mormally 5-6 I do all the cooking, my wife does al the cleaning

But all that goes out the window when were on the run with various sports practices, meetings and volunteer activities.

I usually cook 2-3 complete meals on Sat or Sun for the coming week.

Whenever my wife and I are both home, usually between 8-10 pm. She prepares it most of the time, and we eat out far more often than we probably should.

Between 5:30 and 7:00, I cook about 50% of the time, my wife cooks 25% of the time, and one of our bad habits is ordering takeout about 2 nights a week.

5-6

 

I prepare if the wife is working.  Wife prepares if she isn't.

 

And to answer your next question Peenie, you can stop by for dinner any evening.

You should feed them also, they won't last long if you don't...

 

:P

 

Eat around 5:30 - 6 most nights, wife cooks, I do when she works late.  We eat out on Saturday nights and the occasional week night depending on sports for my son (high school freshman).

 

My wife plans the meals for the entire week on Sunday, do pretty well sticking to it.  My kid is a freak about eating, extremely health and diet conscientious, we've always eaten pretty healthy but, he has really raised the bar.

When we get hungry,the mrs and I rarely eat together and if we do it's because I've gotten the energy to prepare a meal.Most of my dinners consist of a cold sammich,can of soup,something like that while watching tv.

Right about 6. My wife cooks probably 60% of the time with myself or a restaurant cooking the other 40%.

I was reading an article in the New York Times based on a study that said the two material things most upper middle class families can do to increase their happiness are 1) hire a maid and 2) get more takeout. Those save you a lot of time and stress so you get much more bang for your buck than buying new crap or whatever.

In other words: its probably a good area to splurge a bit

I would agree. Time is invaluable. Wife is happy to have a cleaning lady.

Eating out a lot isn't good for you. Practically everything has something high in it. Best to prepare your own dishes. Both can help. I have a housekeeper so I agree on getting rid of cleaning well yourself. There's nothing fun in cleaning unless you're ocd but making simple quick meals can be fun.

We've been talking about getting a cleaning service; we used to have one but stopped it back when I was out of work.  But now my wife is working as well and we just can't keep up with the cleaning.

 

For meals though, she loves to cook.  It is a hobby for her, an enjoyment.  Her birfday is Thursday and she is going to cook for the 5 of us (lamb); she would rather do that and have a nice bottle of wine at home than go out in most cases.  Although, we are doing a staycation at a local resort on Friday where we'll obviously eat out.  And fock like rabbits.  Old rabbits, but rabbits dadblammit!  :thumbsup:

I eat when I am hungry.  But  the most likely dinner time is 6-7.   I'm a decent cook, and actually like cooking on the weekends.

My wife asked me last night about having a cleaning lady come in once a week.

Whats the going rate to clean an average geeks estate? (Just the main house. Not the guest house, pool house, doll house, tree house and hen house).

This could vary significantly.

 

Ours charges $15 per hour.  She comes in every 2 weeks for 6 hours.  We provide all cleaning supplies.

 

We had a house cleaning company come in twice.  They charged $20 per hour per person.  We had 2 people and they were both at our house for 6 hours.  They did a terrible job and got the same amount done as the 1 lady we have now.
