I have always said that I don't want to spend my last days here on earth cleaning. I have been keeping house for more than 50 years.

Didn't you say that you had some beautiful fabric that you didn't have a use for? How about trading that with your seamstress friend. If she would organize your craft area for you, you could trade her the fabric.

I had to wash dishes and clean the kitchen this week! Yippee! NOT that I enjoyed doing it, just that my husband, who used to cook very regularly, made me fetuccinni alfredo from scratch. He used to make me pasta very often, and cook at least a couple times a week, period. Then he decided he preferred cleaning the kitchen to cooking. I prefer that division of labor, to be honest, but do miss him cooking for me. When we have major meals for company and such, we both work both sides, cooking AND cleaning, both of us. But when it's just the two of is, and we're both healthy, s/he who cooks, does not scrub up afterwards.
