I Hate Chores!

Today’s challenge on 30 Days of Lists is to list chores I actually enjoy.

My answer is:

NONE

NOT ONE

Nope, nothing

I used to enjoy baking, but a) my husband dislikes homemade bread, especially for his sandwiches; b) my daughter didn’t care either and c) I can’t eat much of any baked goods, especially if I want to keep my weight down.

I enjoy the end result from cleaning the house, but bitterly resent it while I’m doing it.

Cooking, groceries, laundry, and vacuuming are all so transitory.  I make a big sacrifice of my time to get them done and as soon as I finish, they’re already unraveling.  It’s the same thing with yard work, picking up dog poop, and paying the bills.  It never gets finished and it never stays finished.

Chores soak up time, take away from fun and passions, and give very little in return.

So ends my rant for today.  And my comment about yard work never staying finished?  It for sure doesn’t stay finished when a beagle decides there’s a mole to be found.

[Later note – a few weeks after this, I actually cleaned the house as part of nurturing my creativity.  What a strange change in events!  You can read about it here.]

Augh!  Find the mole already and be done with it!  The problem is he has already found and killed one this summer.  Obviously there are more.

Buy Easter Egg Colored Laundry Machines

Buy (from Wiktionary) – To obtain (something) in exchange for money or goods

One of the best things to buy this year was a new washer and dryer.  Yes, I know the favorite boy toy and I know how to have fun on a Friday night!  But it sure has been nice having equipment that works right.  I took this picture to show how nice and clean everything was before I put the laundry room back together again. 

I did specify Easter egg colors – what do you think?  I probably should have gotten matching colors, but I couldn’t make up my mind (be sure to keep reading after the picture). 

Oh, but today is April Fool’s Day!  So sorry.  NOT!  Enjoy your weekend.
