Housework

Housework
My caption goes here.


In my house, everyone has responsibility
In my house, everyone knows what is expected.
In my house, if someone cooks – that person washes the dishes and cleans the kitchen
In my house, if someone has dirty clothes, they wash them

For 2 days now I have been looking at the kitchen
Someone in my house has been very busy
Going to uni
Time to cook but no time to wash the dishes

The dishes are still there
I am very tempted to wash them, but no
This would be the slow slide into the past, when I would pick up the pieces
I will not do so

Everyone who lives or stays here knows the expectations
Yes, I am home now, not working in a paid job
However, that does not indicate I am free to pick up after others
I will spend my time how I would best like to do, not how others perceive I should.

I refuse to pick up that mantle of ‘mother’
Of expected cleaner of the house or anything other anything goes
Just because I am home now during the day,
If I choose, I will do as I feel, nothing other.
