    no but consider what generation or father's were from. Hell my Grandmother used to iron my dads boxer's, Mom broke him of that habit by starching his shorts.[​IMG]
    Growing up every Saturday all the kids had to help clean the house, vac, dust, clean our rooms, clean bathrooms, take out what ever trash hadn't already been taken out. I always got stuck with the "nasty" jobs as mom "knew I would do it right the firs time." Plus the boys had to mow the yard or shovel depending on the season.
    My sister got stuck with dusting and polishing the silver if it needed it. But, to this day she still enjoys doing that.

    hose off after the ducks go through. I did mop most every day (pet hair).

    Now I am just sitting around pi$$d off cause I can't do anything. I get dizzy when I bend over too long. I can't lift anything or vacuum or mop. I can sweep a little and dust and sort the laundry if someone washes and carries it up. I can just barely heat a can of soup and I am disgusted. I have always been active. I hope I don't stay like this. It is unacceptable!

    Thank you for the time out to rant.

    Probably scared the lurkers away.

    Wait! It's not always like this. Sometimes it's worse! You wouldn't want to miss that would you?

    support the family, discipline the children (when they needed it) take care of yard and driveway, plus cars. And be the foreman of the jobs the kids had to do.

    My dad died when I was 11. I'm not sure what all I missed but I know it was a lot. I used to look at my friend's parents and wish I had a pair. I guess I grew up kinda sheltered.
