|Asalaamu Alaikum ;-)|
This doesn't directly answer your question but I hope it still helps ;-)
[color=Blue]One of the most important ways in which the Muslim woman obeys her husband is by respecting his wishes with regard to the permissible pleasures of daily life, such as social visits, food, dress, speech, etc. The more she responds to his wishes in such matters, the happier and more enjoyable the couple's life becomes, and the closer it is to the spirit and teachings of Islam.
The Muslim woman does not forget that her obedience to her husband is one of the things that may lead her to Paradise, as the Prophet (PBUH) said:
"If a woman prays her five daily prayers, fasts her month (of Ramadan), obeys her husband and guards her chastity, then it will be said to her: `Enter Paradise by whichever of its gates you wish.'"[/color]
The above is taken from the book "The Ideal Muslimah" which can be found at:

May Allah reward you sister for all your hard work, particularly since most of what you do is outside the realm of what you are responsible for. Indeed then, May Allah grant you more reward for such supererogatory acts of kindness and generosity...
To supplement some of what Br. Khalid posted, the following is an excerpt from "Women in the Qur'an and Sunna", an article by Prof. Abdur Rahman Doi which may pertain to your original inquiry. Unfortunately he does not give the sources of these reports or comment on their authenticity, so please be careful in that regard. Nevertheless, their spirit may help address your question.
[color=Green]Once a woman came to the Prophet with a complaint against her husband. He told her: "There is no woman who removes something to replace it in its proper place, with a view to tidying her husband's house, but that Allah sets it down as a virtue for her. Nor is there a man who walks with his wife hand-in-hand, but that Allah sets it down as a virtue for him; and if he puts his arm round her shoulder in love, his virtue is increased tenfold." Once he was heard praising the women of the tribe of Quraish, "...because they are the kindest to their children while they are infants and because they keep a careful watch over the belongings of their husbands."

And Allah knows best...

|Ibn Abbas Radhiallahu anhu narrates that a woman came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and said:|
"I have come as a representative of all women. We want to present a petition to you. Jihaad is fardh (compulsory) on men and only they obtain the reward of martyrdom. We women are deprived of it although we take responsibility for all their domestic affairs".
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said:
"Convey this message on my behalf to all the women that they can achieve the reward of jihaad by obeying their husbands, but very few women consider this to be a reward."
