No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.
All of us have moments in out lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them.
Housework is a treadmill from futility to oblivion with stop-offs at tedium and counter productivity.
Housework can kill you if done right.
