I got off work early so am tackling some chores.

What are your least favorite chore?

Which ones do you not mind so much?

I hate cleaning bathrooms and dishes. Don't like to dust.

Like laundry (washing/drying/folding, not so much putting it away) and grocery shopping.

Vacuuming is ok. Like cleaning floors more now that I have a steam mop.

Have a love/hate relationship with bill paying/bookkeeping. Sometimes I like it other times I hate it.

Like mowing the lawn but hate edging it (in fact I handed that over completely to DH, haven't done it in over 10 years.

My least favorite is dishes. Whether it's washing them by hand or just putting them in the dishwasher, I simply don't like handling dirty dishes. I'd rather do anything else. Second least favorite is cleaning the bathtub. It's physically awkward to me, even with those special reaching tools.

Laundry doesn't bother me. I find it relatively pleasant and satisfying as far as chores go. Also, scrubbing toilet bowls. You'd think I'd find it icky, but there is something about turning the water blue and sudsy and then flushing it that I think is kind of fun.

My least favorite is ironing, but fortunately, I don't have to do so much of that anymore.

For me it is not the clearing out that I dislike it is the putting back, don't like to put laundry away, don't like to put the chairs back after mopping, don't like to put the bathroom items back after cleaning the bathroom.

That's exactly how my mother is. She strongly dislikes putting away dishes, laundry, etc. It was nice growing up that I hated doing dishes but didn't mind putting them away while she was the opposite. It made it easy to decide who did what. Each of us felt like we were getting away without having to do any "real" work.

When all three of my DDs were in the house, they all shared doing dishes but when DD3 was the only one left in the house DH and I took over some of the chores. I don't like doing dishes but dislike it less than clearing the table so her job became to set and clear the table and DH or I did the dishes.

it's not the placing clothes in the washer/dryer or even folding them thing i don't like but rather the putting them away that i don't look forward to, either.

My least favorite chore used to be doing the dishes (even with a dishwasher). Now that I have two kids and a dog that sheds like crazy, sweeping and/or vacuuming is definitely my least favorite.

I actually really like organizing stuff and putting it away. (says the librarian . . .) And I don't really mind laundry too much. You people who like folding better than putting it away though-- I'll trade!

You and I would do well together. I hate vacuuming and love mopping :)
