Why do we all so loathe housework? What is it about laundry, scrubbing, vacuuming and ironing that brings out the procrastinator in all of us?
You will not find the answer here. But we think the best part of delaying housework are the wonderful excuses that we and our loved ones come up with to stave off cleaning and organizing.
