I hope I have succeeded in showing that both roles have an equal level of importance and drudgery. Has anyone noticed BTW that all the chores miraculaously do themselves in this poem?


  1. That is SO clever, Madeleine! I love it. You're the only other person I know who says 'chunters' and boy, do you sound like an awesome housekeeper!

    There's a blog award for you over at mine,

  2. Awwww this is so sweet!!! Yes - I noticed chunters too! Well done!!

    The MC is one organized amazing woman at the home! I really enjoyed reading this, thank you!

    Take care

  3. they ended their day with a kiss and thats perfect! here’s mine for this new year potluck.. http://fiveloaf.wordpress.com/2010/03/15/life/

  4. Awe. You can make the every day interesting to read!

  5. You are a busy lady Madeleine. Wow. I consider it a good day to get laundry done & a meal for the kids. I could never find the time to do all of that in a single day. It would take me days, weeks...

    Thanks for stopping by & commenting at my place today.

  6. So clever...but now that I know all the work I should be doing I'm tired.

  8. Thanks for the lovely participation, Happy Tuesday!

    Potluck Week 17 Treat/Awards 4 You, Enjoy!

  9. Madeleine, you must post the link for the invisible completer of chores ;-)
    I frequently chunter, along with the machines . . .

  10. great fun to read! Thanks for your comments

  11. LOL! Well, the link for the invisible completer of chores I guess should be: www.theelvesoftheshoemaker.com
    I doubt I'd get all those things done in a day either, well not in the winter atleast, but it was fun to write. :O)

  12. Very clever, I wish I was as busy, as your poem!
    Well done, I love the way you wove it. Your day; his day, intertwined~ Brilliant~

  13. Hi Madeline
    Thanks for the follow. This is a cleverly woven poem. Very smooth flowing.

  14. Excellent! Nice parallel view of lives that merge and work together, yet separately. I'll take hubby's schedule over yours though-- that's a lot of work!

    Tossing It Out

  15. ha ha I'll print this out for my hubs the next time he comes home and asked me what I did today.
    How are you my friend?

  16. I love the comparison of both 'jobs', neither being more important, or less tiring, than the other. What a fun read.
