Chores........hate them?

The weather is finally cooling off! PRAISE JESUS! This morning I actually had to put on pants to take the dogs outside b/c it was a little chilly! I am so looking forward to Fall! ;)

Last night, I sat on my sofa looking at my adorable little apartment. I kept thinking to myself I should really be doing a chore or two tonight. I should have dusted, vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen, or started a load of laundry. I did not do anything other than take the dogs outside, washed my face, and went to bed. It was the first time in a long time I actually just relaxed at home without doing one chore. I did a full "spring" cleaning a week ago, changed my sheets last Saturday, and steam cleaned my carpets on Monday. My apartment is not dirty, but I always think I have to do something when I am home relaxing. Why is that? It's probably b/c I am a clean freak, or some would say just a freak! I do not mind cleaning my home. At times, it actually relaxes me. I love the "feel" & smell of a clean house. At times, I enjoy cleaning my home on Saturday, listening to great music, dancing around acting silly, and wearing old nasty "house cleaning clothes". Maybe I just like the music & dancing around aspect of cleaning....Cleaning is a great excuse to being silly, BUT I am a definitely a good dance cleaner! There are some chores that I hate.........I hate: cleaning the ceiling fans, folding clothes, scooping the litter, mopping and sweeping. What chores do you enjoy & what ones do you hate?

I like to clean the toilets because it doesn't take very long. I hate to fold and hang clothes. I like staying in my house cleaning clothes too though....P.S. I wouldn't call you a freak. I'd call you a NERD (wink)

I too love the end result of a full day of cleaning--now that I have a bus load of children,I have to settle for the end result of one cleaning chore being accomplished. Now as for my favorite/least favorite--I love to clean the bathrooms and I DESPISE cleaning the kitchen. I love the look that a freshly vacumed carpet gives and I don't care too much for dusting. Now for the laundry--I tolerate it. I would prefer that the clothes hang/fold themselves, but when I do actually get around to it, I don't mind folding/hanging if I don't have kids tugging at my feet. One last chore that I love to do is mow the yard--the smell of fresh cut grass is one of the greatest smells :-).

I agree with karla about mowing the grass. I love the look of a well kept lawn, and it is great exercise!

I also like the look of the house when the carpet is vacumed, it make me feel clean all over.

I do not like cleaning toilets and showers!!! Has anyone tried the Mr. Bubbles shower cleaning machine? I am thinking about getting one. I also detest mopping the floors and cleaning the windows.

I don't mind the laundry because the alternative is just plain gross!

I love to see what it looks like when I iron as well as grass and vacumeing!

You see the results right away.
