Today maybe my favorite day of the year, it’s National No Housework day! Forget doing the dishes and laundry – put it off until tomorrow.
It’s a Monday and we had a birthday party here for our oldest child last night. The place is a wreck, I have a lingering migraine and housework is the last thing I care to do today. The toddler have managed to find my bag of safety pins and litter my closet floor. I found a pair of scissors and my older son’s project paper cut up into pieces, thanks again toddlers!
Oh the joys.. I’m using this silly holiday as a valid excuse for the house to smell and be littered with kid goo.
National No Housework Day
Are you always looking for an excuse to put off housework and cleaning for just one more day? Well look no further, today’s holiday absolutely insists that you put down the sponge and cleaning supplies and just relax!
A 2008 study conducted at the University of Michigan found that the average married American woman does 17 hours of housework per week! After a long day at school or work, housework is the last thing anyone wants to come home to do.
Doctors and health experts say that it is essential for people with busy lifestyles to factor in time to relax. Relaxation can lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce headaches, and improve concentration.
Celebrate National No Housework Day by ignoring the dirty dishes in the sink and the piles of laundry that need to be done and just relax. You deserve it!
Take the day off. It’s a holiday gosh darnet.
