It Could've Been PANdemonium.

Sunday night, Angela offered me $1,000,000 to wash this pan.



She said if she had to do it again it might get ugly.

My least favorite chore? Similarly...loading the dishwasher.

What's yours?

PS - Angela wants me to ask if anyone has $999,000 she can borrow.

Definitely, dishes! I'm 53 and I don't own a dishwasher and I never have. That's just wrong.

I'd wash your dishes for a year for a million bucks!

I don't like seeing dust on my white baseboards so I'm constantly addressing it. I'm beginning to think that painting them a pretty shade of "dust" could free up tons of time. I may ask Sherwin Williams if they have such a color in a semi-gloss!

I loathe washing dishes!!!! I'll have to admit that cooking ranks pretty close, too. I love to bake because who doesn't love the outcome of baking? But cooking...I get so tired of the negative comments from my children. Any suggestions?

Lisa said...

I don't mind loading the dishwasher..., but I hate unloading and putting away.

I'm glad God gave me a son whose job that now is.

Unloading the dishwasher. Putting laundry away.

Never takes very long...unless you add in all the procrastination.

Kris said...

folding laundry. putting it away. which may be why our laundry room currently has stacks of clothes in a basket. my 9 year old thinks her 2nd dresser is the laundry room.

sigh.

Patty said putting away laundry.

I hate folding it.

Billie said...

Laundry, laundry, laundry, laundry, laundry. It's NEVER done!

Alex and Jill said...

I dislike cleaning the shower and dusting. I actually enjoy cleaning the kitchen. :)

Go-Between said...

I am with Lisa and Joanne - I hate unloading the dishwasher. Don't know why - just do...and include the dishes that have to washed by hand - I hate putting those away too :)

AMENMom said...

If it has to do with housework, I don't like it.

Leah said...

DUSTING!! It is a never ending chore. I have an entire village of dust bunnies that live at my house, constantly manufacturing more and more dust. UUUGGGHHHH!!

I'd wash the pan any day if it kept me from dusting!

I LOATHE grocery shopping..because it seems so darn inefficient. You put all the stuff IN your cart, take it to the check out and take it OUT of the cart..only to put it back IN the cart to take it OUT to the car to load IN the car....drive home and take it OUT of the car to take it IN to the house, to put IN the pantry and fridge....can't someone invent an MRI to scan the carts as we go through the check out, so we don't have to handle it so much?????

I do not like cleaning the bathrooms and mopping the bathroom floors. Also on angela question tell her sure not a problem on the money but there is one hiccup how does she want that and when and I need her to be able to come and pick it up. I would have to go in diguse to meet her and maybe in the next life we can make that happen. Maybe with all of the seista's we can all go and clean dishes for a price 999,000 and free passes to all conferences plus airline tickets and hotel stays can we do that ah ah
Travis you crack me up
have a good day make sure and wash that pan now. Love your seista Carol ALBUQ.NM

Cleaning bathrooms! Gross!!!

Hope you are doing well... Tell Angela I said hey!

My least favorite chore would be putting clothes away. I will admit sometimes I open the door of the dryer and tell myself they are still wet even if they aren't just so I won't have to put them away and I can run the dryer again. I know I shouldn't admit that. Ha Ha!

Profbaugh said...

Hum. . . I think it's a tie between washing dishes and cleaning the bathroom. I can't stand either of these! Ah. . if I only had a maid!!! Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Tell Angela I've got some Monopoly money she can borrow!

Much love,
~Cheryl

Oh my gosh, I loooove loading the dishwasher. But I refuse to do it at home because my roommates will not follow my dishwasher guidelines.

It's all about putting laundry away. Worst chore ever.

Game night tonight. You coming?

JayCee said...

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.....
I wish I had the money to loan Angela!

Least favorite - washing the same stinkin' clothes week in and week out....dishes are pretty bad, too!

(Love Sitesx6's idea....grocery shopping - another dreaded chore!)

Anna said...

Laundry. It just may kill me one day.

A close second is grocery shopping. I don't mind the actual shopping part, but by the time I get to the checkout, I'm done, when I'm actually only halfway through.

Toknowhim said...

Bathrooms and dusting... Well, and trying to do windows... I always see spots I missed :)

Tell Angela I will send her a dollar for her fund :)

laundry. but specifically turning all my husband's tshirts and boxers right side out

Jon and Angie Tyner said...

If you came to my house right now you'd think "mowing the grass is definitely Jon's least favorite chore", but it's actually folding laundry.

Angela said...

I don't like repetitive chores, like dishes and laundry (if I do all the laundry in one day). I can clean a bathroom, vacuum, dust, etc as long as I do it once a week or so. It doesn't bother me. But cleaning up the kitchen three times a day, loading unloading the dishwasher, yuck!

Georgia Jan said...

Dusting - dusting - dusting!

Love a clean bathroom - don't mind laundry - it's that blasted dusting that gets to me.

But dust I must!

Blessings - have fun in NC! I lived there till 7th grade (my Dad was a Marine - we lived in Cherry Point, NC - loved going to Morehead City Beach...)!

cleaning the bathrooms!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fran said...

Unloading the dishwasher, folding the clothes out of the dryer, cleaning bathrooms. And, every single one of these things needs to be done right now. Ugh.

Thats enough for now.

ocean mommy said...

Just one? Well...I hate unloading the dishwasher, but the thing I REALLY hate to do is clean the dog slober off of the windows in our doors. HATE THAT. How can a 7 lb. dog have so much spittle?

Yoli said...

ha ha
sooooo funny!! Glad you are blogging again. I missed your funny ways.

Least fav chore? Grocery shopping. :(

fuzzytop said...

The other night hubby offered me a million bucks if I would get him a glass of ice water. I told him I was still waiting for him to pay up from the last few hundred times he said the same thing....

To answer your question - clutter... I hate picking up the clutter, cuz' dang it, most of the time it isn't mine. It's amazing how much miscellaneous stuff my family can deposit in every room in the house in just a few days!

Lugging the groceries from store to the car to the kitchen and in the cabinets/frig. I usually put off going to the groc as long as I can, so then I have 100 bags and each of them weighs about 100 lbs. I stay in the store so long (becasue I haven't been in SO LONG) that the annual monsoon starts while I'm in there, and everything gets wet, including me. Ugh.

screamofcontinuousness said...

taking out the trash. hate it.

oh and cleaning the cat box.

Kristie said...

Ironing...it used to be dishes, until I heard Beth say at LPL Jacksonville, "How are you gonna tell somebody there's victory in Jesus if you can't even get victory over a sink of dirty dishes?"

And yes, my husband hates ironing equally as much as I do. So, if we ever iron something for each other, it's like a loud way of saying, "I love you!" :)

kitchen and bathroom floors! yuck!

I hate toilets and tubs. Every Saturaday when we were growing up I would trade my sister all the vacuuming in the house if I could do the sink and mirror and she would do the toilet and tub.

Kim V said...

Matching the socks...I usually let them stack up until I have to go buy more because the stack is the size of Mt. Everest.

Sad and pathetic...I know.

Bridgette Jencks said...

cleaning our tile shower. Never seems clean enough and never stays clean. hate it.

WendyB said...

Scrubbing floors!

Inksstillwet said...

Laundry. Every single part of it. I feel like the lady in the commercial where the laundry ball is rolling after her. I think I’ve had that nightmare! Congrats on the CD! What a work of God and act of faithfulness! Blessings, Amy

Sherry said...

Shower scum. Once I get it clean I don't want anyone to take a shower. A little self-defeating.

Have I ever sent you this:

We're fans, as you can see, and are now wondering if we can hold out until Albuquerque to buy your CD. We're hearing from our friends how wonderful it is!
