Today’s #bloganury prompt asks about the most challenging chore.
Pushmepullyou (which is spelled wrong above in the title) is a two-headed camel in the Dr. Doolittle series from the 1960s.
What does this have to do with challenging chores? Well my most challenging chore is vacuuming, which is pushing a machine forward and pulling it back, hundreds of times in repetition. Vacuuming is the “pushmepullyou” of chores.
It’s not that I hate the chore. It’s just that it aggravates a lower back injury from years ago. And for something that I have to do frequently, this is unfortunate.
So I do a series of strength training exercises every day just to function and garden (and vacuum).
At least I enjoy the gardening part.
