    I'm doing something wrong. What is this business about "after I did my housework"? Housework has an "after"?

    Where is it and how do I get there?

    Confused but VERY hopeful,

    Pat

    It took me 80 years to figure that one out so listen and take heed. . . if and when you can.

    I like your words of wisdom!

    Do you mean that everyday is not "No housework day?" I could swear someone told me that there is a National Housework Day and I just thought that on every other day we were not supposed to do it!

    I missed it. Had family over for dinner Sunday, cleaned and cooked on Saturday.

    We only had two people coming, and I spent half the day shopping for groceries and cooking. I enjoy doing that, though, and since the visitors were my easy-going son and daughter-in-love, I only made a slight effort to make the house tidier than usual. That is: I carried a laundry basket around and dumped all the stray objects into it and shoved it into a closet. Done (for now)!

    I'm laughing so hard, I can hardly type, because EVERY day is no housework day for me. UNLESS company is coming. Otherwise, you can pretty much write your name in the dust on the floor, the tables etc - but not in my sewing cave. I NEED to have company once in a while to shake my cleaning genes awake. I know they're in me somewhere, but, fortunately, they're usually asleep ~ ~ ~
