@nkjt: What's wrong with 家内? Heard/seen it used a lot. On another note, 姦しい seems pretty sexist.

comment what is the difference between ごとに and おきに?
Nice usage of the black & white dots. Thanks for confirming my suspicions on the difference. But is there a way to say "Skip every third day" with おきに? Like ●●○●●○...?

comment Is Japanese understandable without pitch?
I was taught that Japanese doesn't have pitch. Just pronounce each "letter" the same as you say them. Maybe this was just to keep it easy for beginners, but I've always stuck to it, and have been told by many Japanese people that my accent and pronunciation is superb. My point is, I wouldn't worry about it too much. My $0.02.
