When it comes to things that require a ladder, lawnmower, toolbox, chemicals or heavy lifting, who does it most of the time?

What about the routine stuff inside like changing filters in the fridge or air?

What about the car(s)? Who takes it in for an oil change (or does it themselves)?

What about the car(s)? Who takes it in for an oil change (or does it themselves)? Not really applicable here. But I CAN do the maintenance on a car.

For everything in our house we call maintenance since we live in military housing

Dh takes care of our car.

Both of us, for all of the above. Carpentry type stuff is usually me though, since I have experience as a carpenter's apprentice.

When it comes to things that require a ladder, lawnmower, toolbox, chemicals or heavy lifting, who does it most of the time? It depends. My husband has Parkinson's-like disease and bad tremors. If it's something risky with his tremors, or that will make his tremors worse, then I do it. I do anything that involves a ladder (he's afraid of heights which makes his tremors worse), I use the lawn mower bc he can't, but he trims the bushes, we use tools 50/50 depending on who's inspired, lol, we heavy lift together, etc.

What about the routine stuff inside like changing filters in the fridge or air? Ha- we are terrible home owners and haven't looked into doing this yet....

What about the car(s)? Who takes it in for an oil change (or does it themselves)?
We do this 50/50 as well.

When it comes to things that require a ladder, lawnmower, toolbox, chemicals or heavy lifting, who does it most of the time? That is mainly me, but I count mowing the lawn as a hobby.

What about the routine stuff inside like changing filters in the fridge or air? That is my husband, but I remind him that it needs to get done.

What about the car(s)? Who takes it in for an oil change (or does it themselves)? I take my car for all its maintenance, but my husband takes his for an oil change.
