Okay, so there's my mother-in-law, and every time I want to help her with cleaning or stuff when we are there - which isn't very often, but still - she says, "No, I like cleaning/cooking/etc."
This baffles me. I like the END RESULT of cleaning, sure, i.e. I don't want to live in a dirty house, so I bite the bullet and clean. And sure, I don't want to necessarily clean when I am on vacation, but I'm not a douche bag who wants to force my mother-in-law to clean for me. After all, I am THIRTY.
But I figure, it's her house, and I'm not going to dictate. Maybe she has her own routine and doesn't want me screwing it up.
However, I really wonder if some people actually enjoy the process of cleaning. It's boring. It's tedious. It's not something I can even deal with without music, an audiobook, or a movie playing, or I'd run away screaming.
Is it just an innate thing? Was she being facetious? CAN I TRAIN MYSELF to actually LIKE it?
