The Real Housewife of Claycord – Every Thursday at 2pm on Claycord.com
This week, I want to talk about household chores….
Being a housewife, one of my main jobs in life is to keep a clean home, but often when I clean it, it’s trashed within about an hour (if the kids are inside).
I know many of you can relate with me when I say one of the best feelings in the World is when your house is spotless and you finally sit down after a very hard day of scrubbing toilets, cleaning showers, doing laundry, doing dishes, picking up toys, clothes, papers, crayons, food and crumbs.
I try to keep up with the chores from day to day, and everybody in the house has their fair share to do, but for some reason, it seems like I’m the only one who does them, even the hubby seems to “forget” to bring out the garbage.
The other day I asked the kids to clean their rooms, and asked my husband to take the garbage to the can (about a 30 foot walk out one door), and two hours later, the kids’ rooms were still dirty and the trash was still sitting in the bag on the kitchen floor. I ended up taking the trash out, and as I was walking out the back door to head to the garbage cans, my husband was sitting on the couch watching the baseball game, he said to me “I was just about to do that”. My spawns are another story, they don’t lie to me about it, they just say “we don’t feel like cleaning”.
It is so frustrating when you’re trying to teach the kids that everybody has to chip in around the house, but my other half isn’t setting a good example (I’ve told him my concerns, and he’s good about it for a while, but after a while he ends up going back into his normal lazy weekend do-nothing mode).
I work my butt off around the home to keep it nice, but it’s good to get a little help in return once in a while.
Claycordians, how can I get my family to help me? I’m only asking for a once-a-week room cleaning and trash-taking-out, so it’s not much!
A few things I saw around Claycord this week:
- That new In-N-Out is one crazy place, but they sure do have a good system going when it comes to traffic. There were about 30 cars in front of me and I only waited 15 minutes.
- Who decided to give the mall cops Segway Scooters? They just look funny and so not intimidating riding those things while “patroling” the mall.
The Real Housewife of Claycord Housetip of the Week:
- When you or a friend throws a bridal/baby shower, buy a pack of thank you cards. During the party, pass out the envelopes and have everyone put their address on one. When the bride/new mother sends the thank you’s, they’re all addressed!
That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie!
