    Same here, only I had light starch on the shirts. I also had my ties, slacks and coats cleaned and pressed. Looking sharp and neatly pressed was always important to me.

    My husband and I have a pretty good split on chores. He does the one I dislike the most - vacuuming. He also does whatever little ironing we need because he's much better at it.

    Our gardener mows, edges, weeds, etc.

    I'm not crazy about starting the dusting, but once I get going I don't mind. Dishes, cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, and the rest of housework are just part of the normal rhythm of our household. No biggie.

    I quite like doing laundry.

    My mother washed the walls, too back then.

    I only spot-wash, dust them down once a year. I need another paint job very soon.

    Yes, I'd like that service, too! I do my dusting one thing at a time as I please and am often behind on it...

    I agree. I gave up ironing years ago. I told my husband he could either send his ironing out or do it himself.

    She will deeply regret that decision!!!! Housework is no more fun just because you are retired.

    I don't mean iron a Crease in them... I just mean getting out the general wrinkles after they've come out the dryer... ..they rarely don't have to be ironed at least a little bit...
