I hate housework. I hate to dust, and straighten, and especially—vacuum. I guess I hate vacuuming the most because I have to straighten and dust before I do it so it involves all three.
When I was a kid, my chores were to do the dishes after supper every night, clean the bathroom, and keep my room clean. To this day, I don’t mind cleaning bathrooms or doing dishes.
I was talking to my mom one day and she told me that the jobs SHE hated were dishes and bathrooms but she didn’t mind vacuuming. Well, that explains a lot, doesn’t it?
Now my own daughter doesn’t mind vacuuming but absolutely detests doing dishes. Guess what job she did at home most often?
I guess the thing I hate most about housework is that it never, never, ever gets done. You vacuum today, and in a few days you have to do it again. I don’t have to write a book over. Or paint a picture over. Once they are done, they are DONE.
It did make it easier when I realized that housework is a lot like brushing your teeth. You never get that done, either. Like housework, it is just something you DO, but never get done.
What housecleaning chore do you hate the most? Mind the least?
