- She does the housework and is now giving daughter more chores as she gets older. Went back to work not so much to pay bills but to be more independent. She does not need to go but enjoys it. Keeps her money separate in her savings account and uses it to buy furniture and nice things for the house. Feels good to earn money herself. Works for Glidden Florist.
