Household Chores

Unless a family has a cleaner or maid, the female in the home is generally the person who does household chores.  In some families the household chores are divided.  For example, in a variety of homes the household chores are passed out to the children. A person may start small such as a five year old emptying small wastebaskets.  Then, as time progresses their chores are increased such as making their beds, loading or emptying the dishwasher, wiping down counters, vacuuming and washing floors.  When my granddaughter was five we used to have vacuum contests. I had a large vac and she had the stick version.She loved it. It really was fun with lots of laughing along the way. The female in the home should not be the only person doing everything. Many of us work or have worked and there generally was never enough time in a day. Long ago, my late husband and I had a home in suburbia. We built an office above the garage. Our late friend Franny came one week-end and installed a bathroom with a shower and a closet. We were in the temporary business and he added a door so that the employees could walk in and upstairs to their respective desks. We were ahead of our time as far as working at home. The employees often took clients to lunch so they arrived at work in casual clothes and kept their dress clothes in the closet. It worked out very well. There was no real commute for anyone with heavy traffic. It was also a quiet place to work. At that time I did have a cleaner who cleaned the office, vacuumed the main floor and the basement. However, when my daughter was in first grade we decided to have a party and invite her entire class. I was literally flabbergasted when I went down to the finished basement that had carpeting, a fireplace and a real bar with brass fixtures that the preious owner had installed, to find she did not ever vacuum and clean the downstairs bathroom. I literally took a day off from work to clean and then decorate. My children were in school so the household chores were totally mine.  She was fired and I hired a high school boy just to vac all three floors. Of course, during that period before bread machines, I made my own bread. He loved coming if only for the hot bread but he did a good job. He had been doing household chores at home so this was easy for him. How do you feel about household chores? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
