It makes you tired reading Chutz's day for sure. Its just my husband and I at home but omg the messes that man can make and it drives me nuts. He is real bad about making his messes and walking off leaving me to clean up. I have been tempted to go out and turn his garage upside down and walking off to show him what its like to have to clean up after someone.
My day starts w/cup of coffee on the backporch, in between scooper pooping daily mission, two dogs can make a mess and I cannot handle it in my yard,lol. I then take care of cleaning the pool, if the yard needs mowing I get that done. I do all of the mwoing, edging and weedeating in the very early hours due to the heat. I am in the house by 10:00 am.
My indoor work is not on a schedule, its on as needed basis. I do run the sweeper daily because I have 2 indoor dogs. Mopping is done on a weekly basis, same with lemon oiling all of the furniture.
I designate one day or 2 days for cleaning the downstairs. I do laundry in the evening while he watches tv. I do not care for tv so I generally will work in the house. I try to to do laundry a load a day.
I also babysit my grandson when I am needed. That job I love but that job wears me out more than anything,lol.
Chutzie you might want to invoke the "no eating in the bedroom rule". My kids were not allowed to eat in their rooms. I wouldn't put up with finding food & dishes in their bedrooms, sent me off the edge,lol.
If the kids come to dinner they get to load the dishwasher and clean up. Its not allowed for the daughter or daughter-in-law to sit on their cans and watch me do all the work. When I am their guest I clean up their kitchen.
I think most of us hate asking anyone to for help, I know I do. Someone mentioned when you need help, you normally need it now, not next month.
