Which Housekeeping Task Could You Do Without?

In a dreamworld, most moms would swear off laundry, doing dishes, taking out trash, cleaning toilets and making beds. Aside from the laundry, all the rest of those duties are what makes vacation sound so appealing. Room service can be left in the hallway, toilets are always sparkling and the sheets are fresh and tidy when the family returns from their dip in the atrium pool. But then reality rears its ugly head and those pesky chores must be tended to. If you had a magic wand and could make one of your housekeeping tasks disappear, which one would it be? Source

I can't stand taking out the trash and cleaning the floors. (I make my husband do it, but he doesn't complain, cause it's the only thing he has to do :P) I don't know what I dislike so much about the floors, it's not that hard! Still, I dread it.

I actually really like cleaning and organizing and doing chores, but i absolutely DESPISE doing laundry. It was fine when I was single, but with a husband and kids, and dogs, good lord, it takes 20 years to get load after load after load done. If I could afford it, i would do without it! Dishes are easy and enjoyable for me. They give me something to do in between the tasks of cooking.

You took the words right out of my mouth, bella. I am admittedly a terrible housekeeper. Ugh.

I hate taking out the trash. Mainly because we live in an apt., top floor, and the nearest dumpster is a good walk away (esp. in the hot deep south summer) I hate it.

Folding the laundry and doing the dishes. Without a dishwasher, I really dread this task.

I love DOING laundry. But putting clothes away in drawers/ hanging things up takes me FOREVER because I hate it and drag it out for at least 24 hours.
