Home Making is my Vocation

I love home-keeping.

But there are a few things about it I DO NOT love.

One:  dusting.

Two:  filing the bills and taking care of paperwork.

Three:  cleaning closets and drawers.

I'd rather clean toilets and showers than dust.

I'd rather sweat like a pig doing just about anything besides file bills and paperwork.

I'd rather clean snow off the driveway with a shovel than clean closets.

What about you?!

Nix on the snow shoveling; I did it with the October snowstorm and my back is still having spasms!
I like ironing but rarely do it because it's so time consuming.

I don't like putting away the washing and unloading the dishwasher. I could do without dusting, but here on the farm it's always needed. I enjoy hanging wash on the line. My clothes dryer gave out awhile back after 18years of service, and I'm not replacing it. I have an indoor drying rack that does the job well if the weather's bad. Most home-keeping tasks are fine with me. But I'd still rather work outside. We're now clearing out years of tangled vines, prickly bushes, and downed tree limbs from a few of our acres. That's MUCH more fun than staying in!

I sure do hate to clean closets. I guess I should look at it a different way and be thankful I have stuff to sort, but cleaning the closets makes me want to kick myself for buying/getting/collecting all that stuff in the first place.

I really don't like housework! I'd rather muck stalls or clean out my chicken run than work in the house. I love having a clean and organized house but as I got older I decided I needed someone to help so I got the nicest lady to come every other week and help with the harder things like scrubbing by hardwood floors by hand. I hate mops! I do enjoy hanging laundry out on the line in the summer.

After 50 years of marriage-there is not many household chores I enjoy doing anymore. I especially am tired of cooking and cleaning. My least favorites are also unloading the dishwasher and putting away laundry. I would rather read my books and blogs.

I hate cleaning showers! My showers often go way too long before being cleaned because I would rather do anything else! My girls clean their own bathroom so thankfully that only leaves me with one shower to clean. I don't mind cleaning toilets or sinks. I really don't mind dusting or cleaning floors. I like to organize my closets every so often but hate filing paperwork. I love hanging laundry. My favorite thing to see on the line are the cute cloth diapers for my little man. :) Even though I don't mind most housework I would rather be outside doing yard or garden work or feeding chickens.

I actually love to dust and vacuum--it's one of those chores where you can see a result. I dislike anything to do with the kitchen--dishes, oven cleaning, mopping, and don't even get me started on the fridge! And, while I don't mind shopping for, paying for, and bringing in the groceries, it stops there. Once they're in the house, I'm done! Hate putting groceries away. Maybe it's because all my kitchens have been small and there's nowhere to put anything.

Room painting is my all time least favorite thing to do. It's not so much the painting as it is all the ready work like spackling and taping. I hate taping! Then I guess it'd be dusting. But I love the results.

Oh, I HATE the bills and filing - all the things you have to do to get ready for taxes, etc. YUCK.
