FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS
The more household chores I take on because of the wife’s medical situation, the more I am impressed and amazed at my dear, departed Mother.
Toilets won’t clean themselves. Unattended laundry will not voluntarily enter a washer. My mother ran a house without modern conveniences. Laundry water boiled in a big copper tub on a wood stove. The washing-machine had to be rolled out from a corner. A rinse tub filled with a pail.
Growing up, I thought I ‘did my share’ around the house. I now know that she let me off easy. A woman’s work is never done.
