Observations in October – 2018 #31Things – Chores and #SoCS – Precious

The Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda is “Precious” and my 31 Things prompt for today is “Chores.”

I know your time is precious so I’ll try to keep this short.  I used to be pretty anal about how the chores were done around the house.  The dishes should be washed a certain way, towels should be folded a certain way, laundry should be separated carefully, blah…blah…blah. 

After a while I decided that as long as the chores WERE getting done, I shouldn’t be so finicky about HOW they were getting done.  Chores are not precious. 

Here is another post I did a while ago about “Precious.”

How’s that for short and sweet?  What do you think is precious?  Don’t forget to visit the other participants in the stream.

    I have my hangups with chores, too. I don’t nitpick over how the towels are folded anymore, but I cannot deal with a dishwasher that is loaded incorrectly!

      LOL. Now that they do their own laundry I really don’t care if they have off-white clothes, I just don’t want them cramming so much in one load that it breaks my washer!

    I’m working hard on letting go of *how* the chores are done. Let’s just say I’m a work in progress. 😆
