Express Yourself: Chores

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The question for this week is: Name a chore you dislike and one you love to do.

Can I really only choose one chore I dislike?  So many of them depend on the day.  Some days I dread dealing with the laundry, and others it doesn't seem so bad.  Some days the thought of doing the dishes seems about as appealing as having a tooth pulled.  You know how it goes.  Whenever you're dealing with a chore that needs to be done daily, you're bound to have good days and bad days.  Still, one chore that I always dread is cleaning the bathroom.  I hate scrubbing toilets.  It's just a thoroughly unpleasant experience for me.

One chore I enjoy is cooking.  Some people may not count this as a chore, but since it needs to be done daily, I'm totally counting it.  And I typically enjoy it.  I dread the aftermath of dirty dishes, but preparing a good meal gives me a sense of accomplishment.  It also means I can eat, which is definitely a bonus!

Which chores do you like?  Which ones do you dislike?


  1. My best chore is shopping, it does one good to get out and about.
    Good post , most enjoyable.

  2. My favorite chore is homeschooling my kids, least favorite is all the others :)

  3. Emptying the dishwasher. I always get stuck doing it.

  4. I am with you on scrubbing toilets. In fact, I will extend it to cleaning the bathroom. I hate the bending and scrubbing in the shower, too. I don't mind cleaning the kitchen or cooking.

  5. I agree with both choices! I really do hate dishes though. My roommates sometimes leave bits of food on their plates and so when I go to clean them I gag/want to throw up a little.

  6. Ah, I didn't think about cooking! Good one!
