It’s That Topic
This week we’re going to discuss one of the most sensitive subjects in any relationship – housework.
You flinched, didn’t you?
Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I really hate housework, but to make it more palatable I have a routine. I do a thorough cleaning of all the wet areas (bathrooms, laundry) one week, and I do the dusting and kitchen the following week. Hubby does the floors (vacuum and mop)
Over the holidays I do the serious stuff, emptying cupboards and wardrobes to clean them, and every 6 -8 weeks I do the refrigerator and the oven. Hubby normally assists with the oven.
Well over the Christmas period things changed. As you might recall we got Covid and hubby didn’t do any housework. He was pretty sick so I just picked up the slack, but there’s always the fear in the back of my mind that he’s not going to return to it.
So, this week I’m interested in knowing how you handle the housework. Do you have a routine? Do you have a schedule? Do you a division of housework in your home, and set areas you maintain. Perhaps its inside/outside? And what do you do when it all breaks down? Perhaps you’re not fussed like my hubby and think it’s a pointless effort.
