If I could avoid any household chore, it would be the dishes.....
...go ahead and throw bathrooms in there too. Those are my nemesis. I keep up with the dishes and laundry because, let's face it, when you're the mom/wife, you HAVE to.
And yes, I keep up with the bathrooms. Most of the time. If we are being honest here, I am a great toilet scrubber, counter-wiper-downer, and sink-shiner. But point to the bathtub and I will slowly inch my way out of the room and hope you didn't notice.
I HATE cleaning bathtubs.
All of that nitty-gritty, knee-aching, stomach-stretching, arm-cramping scrubbing down of soap scum on porous acrylic.... no thank you.
Honestly? I love to vacuum. Seeing the lines on the carpet gives me a thrill that only a housewife feels. And now that I am the proud keeper of faux-wood floors, I have fallen in love with a good sweeping and mopping session. I'm serious, seeing the dark wood reflect nothing but sunshine and a lack of footprints is such a calming sight.
Do I have you running for your cleaning supplies yet?
Next time you mop your floors, think of me. I will be folding endless amounts of baby clothes and my husband's work shirts. Or maybe we could initiate a trade, and you could do my laundry while I clean your floors.
