the 30 & Over project: Spring Cleaning

As we breeze through spring, dealing with all of the sporadic weather and prepping for weddings, graduations, and other celebrations, many of us also practice that time honored tradition of “Spring Cleaning”.

This concept got me thinking back to the days before this new generation of “entitled” children were even born who seem to get away with murder, including some of them not having the dreaded responsibilities of the many chores that some of us, who are 30 and over, had to endure as we were growing up on the 80s.

So my “30 & Over project” question to you is, during the flurry of getting everything in order for the summer months to come:  

Which chores growing up did you just hate to do? Which chores did you not mind doing that much? And which chores, that if you didn’t do them and you sometimes forgot to do, would possibly catch you a beat down from your parents, if you didn’t complete them?  And which chores do you still absolutely had to do, to this day?  Do you have any appliances today that chores easier than when you were a child?

As for me, I was an only child so definitely no one to share the chores with.  My parents house was kept spectacularly clean most of the time anyway, so there wasn’t alot of mess usually.  My basic chores were to clean the second bathroom (the one I used the most), dump the trash cans all around the house, and dust the furniture.  To this day, I absolutely still hate to clean the bathroom. I don’t know what it is. I would rather wash dishes, do laundry,  wash and clean out my car, or poke my eye out before I clean the bathroom as a first choice.  Today, I have a dishwasher which helps to alleviate the stress of washing dishes; the only problem might be actually getting the dishes into the dishwasher from time to time. LOL
