There are certain things we all hate to do around the house. I have 4 things I just don’t enjoy doing.
1. Balancing the checkbook. I know. I’m an accountant. I should love doing this. I spend my entire day at work balancing someone else’s checkbook. Well, among other things. It seems like after spending my days pouring over bank statements, sales figures & sales tax forms that I just don’t have the energy to do my own checkbook. I usually put it off to once a week, which makes it worse. Every time I say I won’t let it happen. The following week, I do it again. By the way, I need to balance the checkbook tonight.
2. Cleaning the litter box. This one could be the worse, just from the smell. Ronnie usually does this one for me. The ammonia smell kills me. It worse than taking out the diaper pail. Does this one need further explanation? Didn’t think so.
3. Folding laundry. I really think I could live from the basket of clean clothes. I wouldn’t have to fold anything. I could hang up everything except my bras, panties & socks. That’s if I had enough closet space, but that’s another blog completely. Once everything was hung up all that would be left would fit into 1 basket and I could pick stuff out of there as I need it. I don’t know why I hate this one, but I do.
4. Ironing. If I had my way, and the money, everything that needed to be ironed would go to the cleaners. They could do it for me. I really think this could be my one luxury. It’s also the one thing I just won’t do. I’ll balance the checkbook (in just a few minutes), clean the litter box (which I did a half hour ago) and fold laundry (did that over the weekend), but I won’t iron. Haven’t done it in ages. I will watch Ronnie iron my work clothes do. He’s such a sweet husband, he ironed my clothes this morning.
So tell me, what do you hate to do around the house? And do you really do it or do you give it to someone else to do?
