The Saturday Seven: Worst Chores Ever

Well another Saturday is here, and for most people that means chores that need to be done. Of course, there are the daily chores- like washing dishes that can be such a bore, even with one of those new fangled dish washing machines. Some chores never seem to bother me, yet there are others I simply dread and out off at all costs. Once I actually get started, they never seem as bad. This brings me to another scintillating edition of:
The Saturday Seven: Worst Chores Ever!
#1 Washing Clothes- I just hate washing and folding too!

#2 Ironing- oh such a headache...need I say more about this one?

#3 Scrubbing the floors- ouch my knees hurt...and it makes me look like an old woman.

#4 Cleaning the Refrigerator- why is it I keep mustard from last year and yogurt that expired a week ago? And how did those onions rot so quickly?

#5 Cleaning the Garage- I never dump stuff in the garage, someone else must have done it to get so bad.

#6 Organizing the Junk Drawer- there has to be a better way.

#7 Brushing my Pussy Cat- it feels good at first, until I hit a knot then he is outta there!

What are some of YOUR least favorite chores around the house? C'mon, leave a message and share a bit...all comments are completely FREE OF CHARGE!

I don't have a problem with the washing of the clothes (too much), but I really need to teach my kids how to fold clothes. Ugh.

I detest cleaning the bathrooms.

i see bathroom cleaning didn't make your list, nor did vacuuming and dusting.

i will gladly do all your laundry if you do my vacuuming and dusting.

I don't like cleaning the house when all six (plus the dog, guinea pig and turtle), are living in it. I used to have a clean house when it was just me. The kids can mess up a room in 2 seconds flat.

I do love laundry though. I think I've just done so much that I love to have soft, clean and good smelling clothes.

As for #3, try cleaning the floor using only your foot, and leg of course! Rub the cleaning cloth around on the floor with your foot. It's much easier on your back and your knees. A mop is good too!

I only iron if I absolutely have to. I don't have room to keep the ironing board up all the time. If I did, I'd probably iron more often.

Have a great weekend. Go outside! Clean the house when it's dark out!!

I am SO with you on the laundry. For #3, how about getting a Scooba (like a roomba). Don't have one, so not sure how well they work, but it sure would be nice to not have to scrub!

My least favorite job is probably cleaning the kitchen floor. The one that hardly ever gets done but needs it badly is cleaning the mini-blinds.
The house always looks good, and that counts for a lot. Just don't look too close.

Just a comment: My 101 yr old aunt never exercied a day in her life, ate as she pleased, but did chores non-stop, before and after her 9-5 job. I hate folding clothes.

Picking up dog poo from backyard that the 60 lb standard poodle left before I can mow the lawn.

Sorry but - I just don't like ANY work about the house! I think I'm far too delicate, which is probably why I married such a strong lass!!! (Only, please don't tell her what I said!).

Mona said...

I agree Totally!

Doing the dishes...I hate it so much!

C said...

Oh, I am sooooooo with you on this one!

1. I don't mind doing the dishes, but putting them away seems to be a bit of an annoyance to me.

2. The same goes for laundry. I don't mind doing laundry, but folding the clothes and putting them away seems so tedious a job to me.

3. I HATE dusting and vacuuming, but it's something that needs to be done and I can't ignore it. Likewise for scrubbing the floors. *sigh*

4. Cleaning the toilet and bathtub's not fun either.
