    Oooh, dishes, I HATE them. I’ll do laundry all day as long as the Mr. takes care of the dishes. I would even be THRILLED with a dishwasher, but I don’t ever want to stand in front of a sink if I don’t have to. I get so bored and feel isolated just staring at the wall or out the window.

    I hate ALLLLL of them. The dishes used to be my least favorite, until I finally came to live with a dishwasher. Now I don’t mind so much.

    I hate, hate HATE cleaning the bathrooms. Especially the showers for some reason. Drives me insane.

    I loathe laundry. It’s just repetative and loud and awful and IT NEVER ENDS! First you have to sort it, then wash it, then hang it out or use a dryer and then you have an entire other load!! OMG!!

    I actually like dishes. 🙂

    PSH… loading and unloading a dishwasher is soooo not equal to actually washing the dishes!! Haha! This is coming from someone who has been without a dishwasher for, oh, all but I think one year of my adult life. Washing silverware by hand is the worst of the worst, for me. Every. stupid. little. knife and fork and spoon… ughh!! My misery will be over soon though when we move to our new house, thank you GOD. And then the top contender for worst chore will be…hmm, probably toilet cleaning I guess!

    when it comes to these chores, we are pretty traditional. I almost always am the one doing the dishes, and the laundry. He does like to dust and vacuum, so I am very happy to let him do that. He takes out the garbage every day, and anything yard/car related he takes care of. My one chore I loathe, is cleaning the cat box. But I love my kitties, so I do it. He will do it from time to time, but mainly it is my job. He does feed and water the cats when he gets up first thing in the morning, so that is one less chore I have to worry about. Sometimes, I will hear him in the kitchen talking to the cats in the morning and that always makes me laugh.

    I don’t even touch the trash, that’s DH’s job. I voted for moping, sweeping and vacuuming. I HATE it, but I’ll do it (though hubby’s usually the one that ends up doing it when we’re expecting company). He hates doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen, which I don’t mind so much so it’s a nice trade-off for us.

    It’s a toss-up as to which I hate more…..taking out the garbage or laundry. I hate both! I do laundry MAYBE once a month. I’m sure this will change when I move in with FH next week. As long as he takes the garbage out I think I can survive.

    I have a secret. I like to clean.

    With that being said, I do have chores I do not like. I’ll take the trash out (even though I’m sexist and think it’s a man’s job because it’s dirty!) but I hate the whole taking-the-bag-out-of-the-can-and-tying-it part. Bringing it to the dumpster? No biggie at all.

    I don’t mind washing dishes, as long as it’s only bigger items, like pots and pans that are just a waste of space, water, and soap in the dishwasher. I can see the tv from the kitchen, or I’ll just put music on and jam. I am VERY grateful for my dishwasher when it comes to tedious repetitive things like plates, bowls, cups, and silverware. Don’t miss washing those by hand my entire childhood.

    Cleaning on, in, or around toilets. I’ll clean the entire bathroom everything, as long as I can leave a two foot radius around the toilet that he’ll clean. (ha, yeah right)

    I actually enjoy cleaning for the most part. But I HATE laundry. I hate the folding and putting the clothes away. I can’t stand it. Dusting sucks too but I feel like I don’t do that as often (oops lol)

    Cleaning the bathroom BY FAR. I let it go wayyy too long in between cleanings of the tub because I just HATE doing it. I actually don’t mind doing dishes (we have a dishwasher, thank goodness), and I actually like doing laundry–I find it relaxing! Unfortunately, we have to send our out due to not having laundry in our building 🙁

    I hate cleaning the bathroom, hate it! The smell of the cleaning supplies gets to me, it’s gross and my back hurts usually from scrubbing the tub. And there is no graceful way to clean a bathtub.

    Laundry is the bane of my existence. Seriously. I.Hate.It!!! Just thinking about it right now stresses me out. It’s like it never ends and I fear the day we actually have children and I then have to wash and fold their laundry, as well.
