I got off work early so am tackling some chores.

Which ones do you not mind so much?

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


And you didn't even know I hate to sew!

As it turned out, so was I. I couldn't watch the game and hate both sides, so I picked the Saints. Cheered for the Colts. Until. You know. The 3rd quarter and then I just mourned.

See? They did it to me AGAIN!!! LOL ;)

That's interesting that your chore day is when your dh & kids are off?

I would think that one of the benefits of being a sahm would be getting the chores & housework done while they are at work school so the weekend is freed up.

My least favorite is cleaning the bathrooms and laundry. The doing it I don't mind, it's just that is neverending . . . you can get all the loads and then people take of clothes/change clothes and then there is more laundry.

My favorite would be vacuming--I like the results. And paying bills, taking care of paperwork.

It may be that she gets everyone involved in the chores, but she can answer that better than I could.

When I was a SAHM my kids chores were done on the weekend (those that did not have to be done during the week) but I did all the chores that I could during the week. I looked forward to having the weekend off. Something I gave up when I went back to work. But I have gained it back a bit. I am doing more and more chores during the week to free up my weekend.

Oh sure I understand that. But my kids are about eggd's and they sure don't help me with everything. There are plenty of chores that I do without their help & if I was a sahm, I'd want to get them done & over with while the rest of the people were at work/school. We have activities on the weekend (dance class), family time, visit with family & plenty of birthday parties & sleepover invitations that take up our weekend as it is.

But yes it is nice to put them to work when they get older! ; )
