Subby, You're wrong.
It just *SEEMS* like you live longer because you long for the sweet, sweet embrace of death.

jlawn001: Granny is at the house right now. 89. All she does is clean.
Worth it?

TOTALLY...between her tonic and her russlin' up a mess of vittles, you ain't got a lick to worry about.

Certain kinds of housework are enjoyable. Cooking, cleaning and organizing the kitchen, most kinds of yardwork, stuff like that can be relaxing and almost meditative. Laundry's not bad, either. And my dog loves trying to kill the feather duster so I can turn a little bit of dusting into some fun bonding time.

But then there are bad kinds of housework, too. Mopping, for example. Anything involving a bathroom. Windows. Carpets. These bad kinds of cleaning can actually shorten your life, so the most important thing is to find someone who has a high tolerance for them and develop a shared list of chores that preserves all the healthy cleanings for you and provides your partner with the opportunity to learn to appreciate the other ones. Many people don't realize the importance, in choosing a life partner, of finding someone with whom you're housework compatible.
