My friend Tara created a cleaning schedule for her and her fiance. They've decided to tackle one area of cleaning every day, sort of spreading the work out over the week. I'm not like that. Once I start cleaning, there is no stopping. It all has to get done all at the same time. I'm a frantic cleaner. Wonder where I get that...? (DAD)
Here are the things I don't really mind doing:
changing the sheets/making the bed
cleaning the toilet (odd I know, but I don't mind it)
Here are the things I would rather have a root canal in exchange for:
mopping the floors
unloading the dishwasher
Looking at the list of undesirables, a funny thing stands out. This morning I was making my usual Sunday morning HC, but the dishwasher was full/clean. I got a mug out, put it in the micro for 2 min, then begrudgingly unloaded the dishwasher. I finished before the microwave beeped. It took less than 2 minutes! Why is something I hate to do so much take so little time? I realized, maybe it isn't so bad. Maybe I just need to get over it and make sure it gets done. And I can reward myself with a cup of hot chocolate after.
What household chores do you like/hate?
