I hate doing the dishes...they are never done. As soon as you unload the dishwasher, there are more dishes to put in because, let's face it, it isn't like we stop eating or drinking while the wash cycle runs. I would love to always eat off of paper plates and with plastic-ware...but it costs money (which, apparently, doesn't grow on trees) and it is bad for our environment. I guess doing dishes is one of those things that is unavoidable (kinda like taxes)....unless we start eating out for every meal. There's an idea....but I think I would get tired of McDonalds and Wendy's after a while. And if I didn't get tired of the food, I'd definitely get tired of the McHips and McButt that would come with it. So now I am back to unavoidable.
I also hate doing laundry. I think I hate doing laundry more than doing dishes because once again, it is never done...and the process takes forever (at least unloading the dishwasher takes 10 minutes)! But with laundry it's wash, dry, fold, put away. REPEAT. Even if I do get all my laundry done in a given weekend, as soon as it's bedtime, the day's clothes come off and there's more to do. Oh yea...and then you find that shirt that was in your gym bag and those socks that somehow ended up under some random piece of furniture. So, I could probably avoid doing laundry by joining a nudist colony (I could save money on buying clothes too!), but EEEEWWWWW! YUK! I don't even like for people to see me in a swimsuit...let alone naked. Oh and I blush seeing underwear commercials, so how would I handle seeing a bunch of naked people. That just isn't happening...no way! Not ever! Perhaps I could avoid laundry by just buying new clothes when I am out of clothes. Oh wait...I tried that in college. It doesn't work. Eventually you run out of money (because money doesn't grow on trees, remember?) So I guess laundry is unavoidable too.
So even though I may feel like doing dishes and laundry is pointless, I know it is unavoidable. So now it's time for me to quit procrastinating and to start folding that laundry from last night (and of course there are some dishes waiting to be put away too!)
What household chores do you hate doing and ask yourself, "What's the point?" Leave a comment and let me know!
