Turning over tasks that you normally do to others can be difficult. I find that in the kitchen all the time. If Bob or the kids make dinner, I am always butting in with advice and I feel this ridiculous anxiety about their spoiling everything. So I have to try consciously, to share the kitchen, with the idea that someday they’ll all work well enough in there that they’ll save me a good deal of time.
