Your Questions Answered

On Wednesday, The Spooky Whisk/Happy Whisk/Ivy asked these questions:

What is your least favorite household chore? And what is your favorite?

Well, I can definitely say I DO NOT have a favorite chore. I hate them all. Probably why they're called CHORES. Ha ha!

But you made me think. Out of the chores I do, or used to do, I'd say mowing the lawn was my least despised. I haven't mowed the lawn this year (we got a service which was pretty reasonable – better than paying the kids!), but I will most likely go back to mowing the lawn next year if I don't have a paying job by then. So whether it's my favorite or least despised, I don't mind that job so much. It's good exercise, too.

But then you probably wonder why we got a service if I didn't mind this chore so much. Good question! Well, when I was working, I really didn't have the time to do it. I wanted to write and writing time was rare. Not the case any longer!

I had a harder time figuring out my least favorite (or most despised) chore, though. There are so many to choose from. I guess I should pick the one I don't do so often, since that would be a good indicator of how much I hate doing it, but even that's a toss up between dusting and cleaning the shower. But since dusting is easier, I guess then my choice would be cleaning the shower. Why aren't they self-cleaning anyway? I get clean IN them, it would only make sense they would stay clean. But nooooo.

Those were the only questions I was handed on Wednesday, so I guess I can throw it back to you, dear reader. Which are your favorite and least favorite (or least despised and most despised) chores?

I will not be able to respond to any comments today as I will be in Columbus for a writers convention (Central Ohio Fiction Writers). It goes through Saturday evening. I'm looking forward to it. I have never been to this convention before. I expect it to be a lot of fun (and I expect to know a few more people there, too).

Hope your weekend is fantabulous!

Have fun at your con.

I don't mind any chore. I even enjoy some, like raking and mowing. But I honestly don't like to cook. Or rather I hate figuring out what to cook. --I need to work on that.

Maria - I wish I didn't mind chores. Then maybe my house would be cleaner! :)

Jennette Marie Powell said...

LOL I'm with you, Stacy - hard to think of a favorite, and hard to pick just one least favorite! Cleaning the shower is definitely up there for least fave. Or maybe cleaning the kitchen floor. Ugh! Since my husband sold the bar and only works part time now, he does most of the chores (yay!), but I still do the laundry. So that's probably my least-hated (which is more accurate than "favorite" LOL). Have fun at the conference!

Washing the bathrooms. I raised boys. Boy never learn to aim. Nuff said.

Hope your having fun at the convention. Mowing isn't too bad, I agree. And exercise, like you said.

I tend not to fold laundry. I don't know why? I don't hate it, but for some reason, I don't do it as much as other chores.

Thanks for answering. Was fun reading your post.

Jennette - Don't you just wish you could hire a maid? I know I do!

Linda - I raised a boy, too. Enough said!

Ivy - I don't like folding laundry, either, but I hate ironing more, so therefore I fold!
