My dad right now is outside pressure washing our back deck, my mom right now is painting her bedroom. We just moved into a new beach house so the work being done right now will only have to be done once in the next 10 years. However I look at my mom and noticed she is going out finding new things to decorate this house with as well as going back to Va. to make sure our other house is clean and to check on my brother. Her mind is always thinking and she is always multi-tasking, whereas right now I can tell you my dad is listening to music and cleaning the deck, once that job is done he is going to expect my mom to make him lunch and probably grab a beer around 5 o'clock. My dad doesn't realize my mom is inside the house painting.
I never thought about how much women actually do in home, until I heard the statistic of house hold labor between male and female. And it is very true in my household that that amount of hours my mom puts in to house work compared to my dad. If only women got paid for house work!
