Share Your World for 3/6/23

Di gives us these questions for our thoughtful consideration this week…

Does your spouse/partner (or do you) help with the household chores? Because of my mobility issues, the chores I do are all computer-based, which in this day and age is an awful lot. I handle paying the bills, moving money around between various bank and investment accounts, doing taxes, and other such folderol.

What is your least favourite chore? Doing the taxes…

As a kid, did you have to do chores to earn your pocket money/allowance? Who didn’t?

Did you save any of your pocket money or spend it all? Spent it all….

All for now!

  1. Hate taxes! Hate dusting. Hubby does so much so I never complain about dusting. Funny, my brother and I never got an allowance but if we worked, then we got some money. My brother got more because he was with my dad in the mill. I was cleaning the house and moving the lawn etc but never got paid. When I helped my dad scale the logs, he’d give me 25 cents. I saved…always. I could never spend the full 25 cents either.


    1. Taxes are the bane of humanity. I understand that the government needs money to function, but it doesn’t need to be doing as much as it does, and too much of it ends up in the pockets of the politicians’ buddies…


  2. Well, I do all the computer work, pay the bills, do the taxes (my husband has gotten pretty scattered in his old age) and I do most of the cooking and cleaning (though we are going to start having someone come in once/month because my back won’t take the heavy stuff). My husband does dishes, walks the dog, goes to the dump, and picks up groceries I order online. He also hauls wood and blows snow. Does yard work. This summer he’ll paint our house and next winter add a couple bedrooms to our open basement. Seems pretty fair, I guess. I do have to redo his dishes and clean the stove and counters…


    1. We’re getting to the point where we need to bring help in, too. Sounds like you’ve got things pretty evenly divided. We put a bedroom in our basement about 20 years ago, and it was a Godsend after I had my stroke and couldn’t climb stairs very well.

      1. Well, our bedrooms in the basement will be guest rooms, I think. Luckily we have two bedrooms on main floor and a full bathroom. My mother always said you had to have a full bathroom on yourmain floor and one bedroom. She was right. Glad you have adjusted.
