Well the holidays are winding down and major pick up and clean up is in order at the Cox household. When Christmas Day rolls around, I give up any pretense of trying to stay on top of the housework. But now that the holiday is over its time for the Cleanup Brigade. While the Brigade is on call during the holidays, the workload rises steadily after the guests leave. Unfortunately, there's no overtime pay. No doubt due to the poor economy.
The topic of housework doesn't exactly lead the list in titillating topics, but out of curiosity how many of your loved ones and guests make their bed?
I've got two in the family that are stellar. From there its downhill.
How many cook?
Here I'm very fortunate. I've got three in the family that love to cook and make mouthwatering meals. And if we happen to be grilling out, the number goes up to five.
What about cleaning up the kitchen after the cooking?
Okay my numbers drop significantly here.
Everyone gains points on this one. All the family is usually willing to help out with the odd jobs.
Points to the family on this one too.
We won't even go there.
If you are a member of the CB, I hope the cleanup fairies come to visit your house. They've left mine and I don't look for them back for a very long time.
