    The Dread Housework

    You know what I hate most about housework is that it's a never ending process.  You'll get your house completely clean and have to do it all over again the next day.  It's frustrating.  I hate dishes the most for some reason.  I would rather scrub toilets than do dishes...

    My mother sometimes tells me she'll feel sorry for my boyfriend if we ever move in together. She's what you call 'a real woman'; she used to wait for my brother and me to come home from school with tea, she bakes cookies, she's a great cook, she won't leave the house without make...

    Still Hate It, But Much Less Thanks To Eft!

    Attitude (n) - a hostile manner. That's one word that describes me when someone asks me to do something I detest so much!In the past, I gave Grossmuetti (I'm not German, but I call people that) an "attitude," meaning that I complain when she gives me a task I have to complete...

    I hate housework especially since I care for three kids who dont care to pick up after themselves but more than anything I hate laundry.  I make sure to do the kids' laundry but my own has a tendency to build up until I run out of clothes.  Yep, I hate it all. ...

    I Do!!

    I hate housework.  I never know what to do with all of the clutter and junk that can't be thrown away.  All of the papers and notes, shoes, dirty dishes, all of it drives me crazy!  Oh and what does hubby do?  He brings home a guy he works with yesterday. ...

    I Hate Housework So Much It's Not Even Funny

    When someone expresses hate for housework, it always seems to me their comments are received as at least slightly humorous, if not as a downright comedic monologue.  The dysfunctional vaccuum cleaner graphic used on this website is a case in point, as if it would...

    Housework Defeats Me!

    First of all, if there is a housework gene, I am missing it.  Second, I have never been organized, so I am missing that one too.   I tend to focus on whatever particular thing I am doing, and I sort of spread my supplies "around me"... I like everything...

    My Mess Is A Place!

    Heloise Cruse once famously said “I think housework is the reason most women go to the office”. I can totally relate to this. While I’m a full-time wife and mother of two toddlers, I also work part-time. I love my little girls and spending time with them, but I don’t love...
