Cleaning the bathroom! Specifically the tub/shower. I don’t know why, but I HATE doing it! I don’t mind any other chores – I even enjoy most of them! But that’s one that I just can’t stand!

I HATE vacuuming! It’s my nemesis, probably because I’m totally anal retentive, so I can’t just do a ‘quick’ vacuum. I have to move all of the furniture, and get every last bit of everything off the floor. By the end I have a light sweat going and I’m a big grump! hahaha, often my SO takes care of it so he doesn’t have to deal with me after!

mowing the lawn and vaccuming or dusting.  Fortunately my hubby is obsessed with dusting and vaccuming and I get out of mowing by volunteering to pick up all the puppy poop in the backyard.

I hate cleaning the kitchen floor. It takes forever, and still never looks clean (I love having two dogs). I will often build up a sweat from the exertion (and I’m not that unfit). Possibly it’s because I have a cheap crappy mop, who knows. But yeah, I really dread it.

I also don’t like vacuuming (same as the mopping – takes too long and I find it physically exhausting), but that’s ok because it’s DH’s job! He does that plus the outside plus his own laundry, I do the bathroom, the kitchen and whatever else needs doing!

I despise dusting and do it very very rarely.  I may vacuum every day, wash the kitchen floor several times a week, but dusting? Hell no! And I’m not real crazy about the monthly disinfecting of the litter boxes either!

I love mowing….wanna trade?!?!?!?  We always argue over who gets to mow.  On the other hand, I strongly detest the bathrooms, sweeping the house (all wood floors), and IRONING (YUCK)!

I hate laundry.  Mainly because I hate sorting it, carrying it downstairs, going back downstairs to change loads, going back downstairs to take it out of the dryer to bring it upstairs and fold it and then put it away?  Ew who wants to do all that work!

I hate pretty much all household chores, but I’m particularly bad at dishwashing so I’ll go with that one.
