My Least Favorite Chore

For anyone who has the opportunity to talk with me (or see my weekly Friday updates), this will not come as any surprise. I especially know this as I received a surprise phone call last night from my dear friend Herbie. Oh yeah...he called again :) That's impressive when you consider we have an entire ocean separating us.

My hubby happened to be home this time, and as he and Herbie chatted away they fell upon an unusual subject: me hating to clean the bathroom. Apparently I've mentioned it more than a few bazillion times!

It really is my least favorite chore. I hate it with a passion. WITH A PASSION!!! It's just...plain...gross! Not to mention with little ones at home it doesn't take long for all my hard work to be undone in 0.6 seconds...SO wrong on SO many levels...

I'm getting good at coming up with all sorts of reasons to delay the cleaning of the bathroom. I need to exercise. There's laundry to wash, dry and fold. The kids need attention. I'm in the middle of a really good part of a book. This blog will NOT write itself! That's right, I'm avoiding the cleaning of the bathroom right now.

The funny thing is, if you were to ask me what chore gives me the most satisfaction when it's finally done...I'd have to say the bathroom. There really is something fantastic about taking something so icky and turning it into something sparkling.

Even if it does only last 0.6 seconds.
