EVERYTHING on that list. My mom told us she was a failure as a mom as none of us girls liked to cook, clean, etc. I told her no she was a success as a mom as she taught us this kind of crap wasn’t automatically a woman’s job and we didn’t have to like it just because we were female.
@hchavers The last time I replaced my smoke detectors I sprung for some with sealed lithium batteries and it is SO worth it. The batteries last longer than the lifespan of the detector itself, so I haven’t had to think about them in seven years.
@ironcheftoni When my kid informed me she did all the work around the house and I did nothing I made a list of everything that needed done from chores to paying the bills, homework, going to work, school, etc. I put them in daily, weekly, etc, lists and made her pick “x” number from each list. She chose to clean everything in the bathroom except the toilet. because she said that was too gross (as was the cat dirtbox; she also then realized I did 4/5th of everything that needed done) Gave me good information for the chores to give her when she owed me X amount of minutes in hard manual labor when she violated certain house rules.
@Snivles@unksol Grungy - not complicated, just - dirty, and going up from there in nastiness - greasy, germy, stinky. I’d rather fold and put away a dozen loads of laundry than clean the nasty basement shelf that’s had mice running around on it.
@unksol The mice ran rampant several years ago when my little old cat Django was failing, and since getting Toby it’s been far less of a problem. I haven’t gotten hantavirus yet so I suspect those mice were the little domestic ones, not field mice. I should clean that shelf, but … ugh.
@Kyeh when I bought the house they left this old work bench that was really just some rotting cabinets just coated in stuff and mouse poop. I got around to just some gloves and a mask and hauled it down the hill and burned it. Which. It’s a little illegal but it’s the country.
If you don’t have any easy way to dispose of it though… if it’s just one shelf I’d think it would break down into one garbage bag of space. Depends on the shelf I guess. And available tools.
It is very satisfying though to just have a thing done/over
