With a house full of children, homestead chores were covered by those where well. Sometimes it took quite a bit of delegation to get it all done, but when we pulled together it ran quite well.
*One thing at a time.
Once children started moving away, there were less of us to pitch in. Sometimes the chores fell to only one person as the other was resting and recovering. The only way to get it done was one thing at a time.
These days, my husband and I trudge through whatever the situation. This week, we are definitely pulling along as we sniffle and drag our way through the stalls and down the halls.
