Today’s Challenge: Your Least Favorite Chore
Is it bad that I can’t narrow it down to one? I have several I hate to do. I love organizing and straightening up, but I HATE cleaning. I hear some friends talk about having someone to clean and that sounds absolutely heavenly. That doesn’t fit into our budget, so we just have to roll up our sleeves and deal with it. There are some tasks I’d rather leave to Brian, though:
• Taking out the trash: At our old place, we had a big can that we’d roll out to the curb on trash days. The can was accessible and I didn’t mind doing it at all. At our current house, we have to go out into the alley to take our trash to the dumpster. I don’t know why I dislike doing it so much, but I do know I’m very thankful to have a husband who volunteers to take on that task!
• Mopping the floors: I used to hate vacuuming, but now we have a Dyson that I love, so it doesn’t bother me. I do hate mopping, though! We even have a Shark steam mop that makes it less of a hassle to mop the floors, but it’ll never be something I enjoy doing.
• Cleaning the bathroom: I’m betting this would be on most people’s list! It just seems like there’s so much to clean in the bathroom – counter, sink, toilet, tub, floors. I get tired just thinking about it!
Your turn to sound off – what chore(s) would you prefer to avoid?
