A Homeschool Family
Unexpected guests were on the way, and my mother, an impeccable housekeeper, rushed around straightening up. She put my father and brother to work cleaning the guest bathroom. Later, when she went to inspect it, she was surprised that the once-cluttered room had been tidied up so quickly. Then she saw the note on the closed shower curtains. It read "Thank you for not looking in the bathtub."
Vision of Cleanliness
Saturday had always been "cleaning day" in the old homestead, and my mother still adhered to the ritual after all her children had left the nest. When I stopped by to visit her one Saturday, I was surprised to find her relaxing in a favorite chair. "Aren't you feeling well?" I asked.
"I feel fine."
"But you're not cleaning."
"After all these years I've finally figured out how to get it done in half the time," Mom told me. "I simply take off my glasses."
When my septic system was clogged, a colleague volunteered to help me. Bob climbed down into the pit with a snake and yards of cable. After 15 minutes I heard him muttering: "My mother needs a ride into the city, my brother is coming to town, my car has to go to the garage -- "
"Bob," I asked, "what are you doing?"
"Practicing," he replied.
"For the next time you have a problem."
Eau de Product
When I was pregnant with my third child, my mother came to help with my two boys, ages four and six. Mom, who we call Mimi, also cleaned and scrubbed until the whole house was shining. The smell of her favorite cleaning agents often lingered in the air. After the baby was born, Mimi returned to her own home.
Two days later I found some stains on the kitchen counter, so I used bleach to clean them up. Just then my four-year-old walked in and asked, "Where's Mimi?"
"She went home," I replied. "Don't you remember we took her to the airport?"
"Then why do I smell her perfume?" he asked.
My husband and I have always exchanged chores around the house, including doing the dishes, which I hate to do, and mowing the lawn, which he hates to do. This worked to our mutual satisfaction until he began to be bothered by people in passing cars staring at him as he relaxed while I mowed.
He solved the problem by presenting me with a T-shirt to wear while I was cutting the grass. On the front, big letters said: "IT'S ALL RIGHT." The back of the T-shirt proclaimed: "HE DOES THE DISHES."
Okay, I think we all know this feeling! Take a look!
