Dreaded Summer Household Tasks

Open House: What Summer Household Task Are You Dreading?

While I love to think of Summer as a time to enjoy some carefree fun in the sun, the truth is there are numerous household-related tasks that have to be accomplished as well. From lawn maintenance to repairing outdoor patios, Summer often means hard work for many homeowners.

The Summer-related task that I'm dreading is powerwashing and restaining our deck, as well as our tenants' deck. Both decks are quite large, and I imagine that we'll spend at least the better part of one precious Summer weekend preparing, washing, staining, and then reassembling our deck spaces. Oh, and we should probably also clean and maintain the neglected teak outdoor furniture while we're at it, too.

I'm sure that the task won't be that bad once we get started — that's often the case with household projects. Worrying about them is usually worse than actually finishing them. Still, I'd much rather be canoeing on the river or visiting vineyards instead of powerwashing the deck.

Is there a Summer household task that you're dreading? Tell me about it in the comments!
