These are the 5 most hated chores in America
Plus how to do them the right way.

from Amanda Tarlton

I love this story. It’s what happened to me as a child. Maybe you to…

No one likes doing chores. Growing up, my mom made us spend every Saturday morning dusting, scrubbing, vacuuming, and organizing. And while I’m sure it taught me responsibility and hard work, it also gave me a deep-seated resentment of chores that has lasted my entire 28 years.

And most other adults feel the same (surprise, surprise). However, we still have to do them—according to a new survey, the average person spends about 690 hours a year on household chores.

Here are the five chores that Americans say they hate doing the most, plus our expert advice on how to make them a little more bearable.

I Have Made You

I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah 46:4

I will be your God throughout your lifetime–until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.


Student Sponsored Prayer Locker

Student Sponsored Prayer Locker at Pike Central. The Prayer Locker allowed any student to drop a slip of paper with a prayer request into the locker and have someone pray for them.

The students thanked the teach Mrs. Good for the idea. I love it!

KTRE-tv reports on High Heat Warnings

KTRE-tv is reports “Recent heat advisories prompt a word of warning from East Texas doctors.”

The CDC reported last year that heat was the leading cause of weather-related deaths in the last 30 years, and East Texas doctors are reminding their patients of the seriousness of recent heat advisories.

The sun was beating down on a crew from Leal Landscaping in Lufkin. Trying to keep in the shade, they say the high temperatures from the past few weeks have made their work more physically demanding.

“Especially now in these times, the humidity has been getting to us a lot,” one worker, Francisca Santana said.

Dr. Jeremy Chester at Woodland Heights Medical Center says that road workers, contractors, or landscapers who have to work outside have to be more conscious of heat exhaustion.

“Some of the people in the lumber mills will get overheated and they will come in,” Chester said.

However, he says they become accustomed to it over time, and that those who work indoors are more likely to suffer heat-related health problems sooner.
