I cleaned my room today.
No i didn’t mean the chumma dusting up. i cleaned the whole room. Took all stuff out and then vacuumed dusted, washed the floor. In short a full overhaul.
The reason : I start sneezing as soon as i get into my room and the obvious culprit was all the dust accumulated. Since I have banned my mom from cleaning my room , dust accumulated fast.
Since i made a mess on the front steps and the small courtyard ( മുറ്റം ) I cleaned them as well . The cats , though perplexed , were gracious enough to sit around and listen to my rants during the whole time.
The room and the courtyard.
Aah now , to the subject of the post.
Its a theorem:
You are likely to meet a superwoman everyday in your life
Super woman is the woman of today who balances a job , kids and house work and still manages to spend some time with her husband. They are amazing. Really.
I know two. One is my mother , the other is my sister. My sister all the more because she works as a software engineer and by the time she comes home , her mind is numb . But she still manages to play with the kids , bathe – feed and get them to go to bed .
I work , but when i get back home, i either sit around chumma or go read a book.
The theorem occurred to me because i was so tired after doing the cleanup . Washing the floor was a bit more kashtam than the rest of the chores. And to imagine that my mom does it twice a week to all the rooms.
So from now on , i am going to wash the floor . Twice a week.
