    Every minute, to and fro,
    That's the way my hours go,
    Bring me this, take me that,
    Feed the dog, put out the cat.

    Standing up I eat my toast,

    Drink my coffee, thaw the roast,
    Empty garbage, make the bed,
    Rush to church, wash my head.

    Sweep the kitchen,

    wax the floor,
    Scrub the woodwork,
    clean the door,
    Scour the bathtub,
    then myself,
    Vacuum carpets,
    straighten shelves

    Eat a sandwich

    on the run,
    Now my afternoon's begun.
    To the soccer game
    I go,
    When will I find
    time to sew?

    Meet the teacher,

    stop a fight,
    See the dentist,
    change a light,
    Help with homework,
    do the wash,
    Iron the clothes,
    put on the squash

    Hey Aruna,

    So well said.

    Maybe next time a spouse say "What DO women DO all day?!?" tell them to switch roles:cheers

    Hello Paulina
    Nice to see you here. How r u?? Thank you for peeping in this thread. Yes this is the exact life of a woman even though exhausted by the end of the day if some family member wants her she is again back on her feet to do her duty.
