It didn't seem like a big ask. I'm not stupid, people; I'm sitting on three, count'em, three college degrees. Granted, none of them is in engineering, but seriously, all I wanted to do was clean up the dishes.
Bed-making was a big deal to Mama. I'm not naming names, but I remember one time Mama actually tried to bribe one of my siblings into making his/her bed. (Didn't work.)
Tom and I buy groceries once a month. Our monthly system has worked pretty well for about thirty years. Or at least it did until a few weeks ago.
I love the picture in this series banner! If there's anything Mama was known for it was washing clothes. One of our aunts said, "Nobody but Martha Lou could get freckles on the underside of her arms from washing and hanging out so many clothes."
