I can totally relate and sometimes wished I had had a glass of wine instead of cleaning but it was somewhat like my first act of defiance. He hated the noise of the vacuum cleaner so I had to vacuum the floor only when it was convenient for him no matter how much blonde dog hair was rolling along the baseboards on a dark faux wood tile floor.
I vacuumed with abandon and without moment of stress over how long it was taking me. Now, if I had invented a cup holder for my vacuum cleaner, I could have vacuumed AND had a glass a wine!
And thank you for the compliment. I hope to write more frequently than what I’ve been doing of late. I’ve been doing a lot of reading but not nearly enough writing.
