Sisyphus: The Villain of Household Chores
I never knew Sisyphus was such a creep. I think about that rock a lot, though. And, I'm not complaining. I wouldn't have it any other way. But, laundry and cleaning the house often feel pointless. Arlene said she prayed for each son while she was folding his clothes. I like that. Rather than cursing whoever got the floor dirty within 30 seconds of it being clean. I guess I am afraid
(and it's no one I know, just some imagined cleaning police) is going to say my house or my House is dirty. Yet, I know my house and House are clean. Well, at least clean enough. : ) I can think of any Dirt that remains to be cleaned. Although there are Dirty Projects, I suppose. My side of the Street is as clean as I can get it by myself. No one has ever been harmed by dirt. It is evident that our combined Dirt does need to be thoroughly spring cleaned. In ways, it's one huge rock, but maybe instead of the pushing it uphill metaphor, our Rock is more like creating the statue of David. Not done in a day, takes a lot of time, care, and planning, and is worth doing.
