l received a lot from being close to my mom and following her around as she did numerous chores around the house. She would pull up a chair to the counter for me as she washed the plates. So then I could help her rinse the plates and cups. I followed her to the laundry room, holding what clothes I was able to carry, there she showed me how to sort and scrub our clothes. Whatever chore Mom and I had to perform together she always made it cool and entertaining. Even doing our laundry was fun because Mom and I would watch my number one cartoon as Mom and I folded the clothes. Now I am a mom, so I appreciate showing the kids how to do things while we have fun performing the tasks and enjoying each other’s laughter. I even found a trick to make cleaning the heating and cooling condenser component entertaining. I bought the kids their own little rakes so they could use them to help me remove the leaves around the air condenser. All of us piled the leaves high up on the other side of the yard away from the Heating and A/C condenser and then went to jump in them. All of us continued cleaning the condenser component of our heating and cooling system by using the water hose to spray the outside cover of the condenser to remove dirt. Of course anytime the water hose is part of cleaning, you are going to get some enjoyment, even when it is cleaning your heating and cooling system. My oldest son loved playing in the water the most. But my son also loved it when we put on our tool belts to maintain the heating & air conditioning. All of us didn’t use them, of course, just to change the oil furnace air filter but it did make it a bunch more fun.
