I tried to force "housework" out of the PONARV catagory. I hired a service to do the housework! Every couple of weeks some nice young woman would scrub and scour our home and she would GET money! It was beautiful while I could afford it. Now I am back to enjoying this little PONARV.
I am currently investigating the abilities of non-humans to "do housework". I have discovered that a dog can function as a fairly efficient dishwasher and vacuum cleaner. Birds seem to generate more housework, not less. Cats never seem to have enough energy, although they are good at disarticulating bugs.
