I need therapy, but I'm just way too cheap to pay for it.

Question of the day
Why is it so incredibly hard to get kids to help around the house? I have pondered this question over and over and over, all while plotting the demise of the children who ignore my existence while it is clean up time. They won't go outside to save their lives - but if they can get out of picking up a wet towel they will brave 105 degree Texas heat to avoid the task.
I'd like to blame it on that guy I married my wonderful husband. Actually he is quite wonderful - unless he is disciplining the children - which is NEVER - or if he's playing video games - because no one must interrupt video games. NO ONE. Although, I have less respect for the guys he plays Battlefield with, as last night I discovered they were drinking wine. I love wine, but any self respecting soldier in the middle of war should not be drinking white-wine spritzers. Beer, Bourbon or Scotch - that's pretty much the only options for soldiers.
Sorry, I got distracted, back to the lazy children. How do you make lazy children clean up?
