You have found the key to solving all 'first world problems". Even though I rather like grocery shopping, I realize that in many places, people don't even have a choice between clean and dirty water. Attitude and thankfulness changes everything.
I think carpets make a home seem cozy and comfortable, but they do tend to hold lots of secrets... and dirt.
Good point. I think I mentally blocked out the poop thing. But yeah, I wipe up way too much poop in the day. I'd gladly give up that job to a robot or something. Yuck.
I know what you mean. I cook in my toaster oven whenever possible,-- a smaller space to clean.
A little glass of wine-- just to test out the suitability for your meal while cooking it, of course -- sometimes helps.
I agree, but am trying to focus on my thankfulness for having a dishwasher.
I don't like mopping at all because in the kitchen I have to move everything around. And it's a small kitchen or we just have too much stuff in it so I have to climb over things to get to the other end
I like the house elf idea. My kitchen is rather large and I made the mistake of actually choosing a light colored, textured flooring material. Wrong choice. It looks beautiful when clean-- at times to few and far between. Attitude is key.
Lol! I remember one time my hubby and I had to literally get my older daughter in the tub. I had her arms and he had her legs. Thankfully those days are over
I think you are talking about washing the dishes, pots, etc. I can remember that my sister and I did the "washing up" most of the time-- and that was way before having a dishwashing machine. No bribes, it was an understood duty.
