The Happy Suburban Chick must come face to face with her reality of housework. It certainly does not fit into the area of domestic bliss. Here is a list of 5 housework problems that every Happy Suburban Chick must come to terms with. They are as follows:
Housework is like Groundhog day, same thing day after day. I empty the wash basket, and the next day it is full and I start all over again. I make the beds and the next day I make them again. I do the dishes and the next day I do them again.
The biggest problem is nobody really appreciates it especially when it is done well, things run smoothly everyone is happy and life just goes well.
When it not done, you soon hear the complaints, the inconvenience is well and truly noticed. Like where are my jocks, did you buy me my deodorant, post my letter, and I am hungry what is for dinner tonight
I don’t get paid to do it, even though I work hard and put a lot of hours into it.
It doesn’t require much skill, but rather takes up a lot of time. I can not develop my skill and knowledge.
Being distracted by housework when I could be doing something more interesting, challenging and fun. Yet somehow that housework is very persuasive because I find myself doing it.
So what’s a Happy Suburban Chick to do! Put on the music and get stuck into for a start. Acknowledge that it will never be complete it simply and ongoing project with no end date. If no one appreciates your work you must be doing a magnificent job. They can sack you, and give your job to someone else. Funny thing is I have never been given the sack from doing housework even when I suck at it. That’s right it’s unpaid work. Finally when you find yourself being sucked in by the persuasiveness of housework, set boundaries and give it definite time frames, and say no when it demands more.
A Happy Suburban Chick must learn to control the times she spends on housework so she can spend more time doing what makes her happy.
