Rise up against your oppressor, Karen!!!!1one

Kidding :)


I do no home repair, and I haven't given back the grocery shopping since my husband started doing it after our first child was born. (20 years ago) Otherwise, pretty much everything falls to me, unless I ask him. Being self-employed, he spends a lot of time away from home.

Sigh. What a difference ten years makes! I live in a household of adorable do-nothing males. As an example, the lawn is never watered in the summer because if it was watered it would need mowing. In twenty-five years my husband has done dishes perhaps twice and I remember one meal of canned pork and beans he made twenty-three years ago (when a new baby came home from the hospital). If I ever feel that I need a break he's always ready to prepare his specialty, though - tuna fish sandwiches. I can't hack many breaks.


I actually don't mind grocery shopping, and sometimes just getting out of the house alone is a godsend!


I absolutely love grocery shopping. And I don't mind cooking, either, though I claim no special skill at it. Laundry is my least favorite chore. Even scrubbing bathrooms isn't as bad.


The thing I like about laundry is that once it's done, it's done. Same with emptying the dishwasher. Whereas with scrubbing the bathroom or dusting, you always feel like you could have done it better somehow. Well, I do anyhow!


My least favorite tasks are putting the laundry away, emptying the dishwasher and filing. I really hate filing. The other problem I have with laundry (and a lot of other cleaning tasks) is that I start to think about how many times I have washed the exact same shirt, wiped the same countertop, washed the same pot...methinks I should not think so much.


I said that to a friend recently, that my life sometimes seems to consist of "Do. Undo. Redo." Repeat ad nauseum.
