  • Well, darn. You bring up the C word and make me remember what I am supposed to be doing instead of watching America's Next Top Model in my pajamas.

    1. What is your favorite "chore" to do? I don't mind doing and folding laundry. 
    2. WHat is your least favorit chore? I hate cleaning the bathroom.
    3. What does DH do with out asking everytime? He cleans the litter box! I think I may have told him he had to do it while we were TTC (:::smiles innocently:::) and he's been doing it ever since. I figured he would have realized by now he doesn't HAVE to do it anymore since I am no longer pregnant, but hey, I'm not complaining. 
    4. What do you have to hound DH to do for you? Take out the recycling. 
    5. If you could hire out 1 thing, what would it be? Cleaning the bathroom. I hate everything about it.

    1. What is your favorite "chore" to do  Steam clean the carpets. So satisfying.
    2. WHat is your least favorit chore?  Cleaning the kitchen. Hate. It.
    3. What does DH do with out asking everytime?  Takes out the garbage. He's fabulous.
    4. What do you have to hound DH to do for you?  Unload the dishwasher / clean up his "office"
    5. If you could hire out 1 thing, what would it be? Toss up between laundry (bane of my existence) and the dishes.
  • What is your favorite "chore" to do?  I'm not sure I have a "favorite chore," really, but I'll say washing towels.  I like when it's done and all put away, and it's way easier than washing clothes.

    What is your least favorite chore? Hands-down, emptying the dishwasher.  This is my most hated task of all!

    What does DH do with out asking everytime?  He takes garbage and recycling to the cans regularly, and drags the cans out to the curb on garbage day.

    What do you have to hound DH to do for you?  Vacuum - I don't mind doing it, but I do a lot of other stuff and he doesn't mind doing it.  I have to remind when it needs doing b/c he's apparently blind to dirt on the floor. :-)

    If you could hire out 1 thing, what would it be? Cleaning the shower!  I think it's gross and it's a PITA to reach everywhere.  I would love if it was cleaned more often.

    1. What is your favorite "chore" to do? Ha, if I had to choose I'd say vacuuming or sweeping, but I really hate all of them. I suck at being a domestic goddess and would hire a house keeper if A-they were free and B-my H would let me.
    2. WHat is your least favorit chore? All of the above. I didn't have chores growing up so I hate cleaning, a lot. I really hate folding laundry the most I guess.
    3. What does DH do with out asking everytime? He's a great house keeper, he'll do pretty much anything but laundry.
    4. What do you have to hound DH to do for you?  Pick up his gosh dang socks off the stairs (UGH!) and bring them upstairs to our bedroom. Also, his own laundry. He once went and bought new boxers because I hadn't washed him any. True story.
    5. If you could hire out 1 thing, what would it be?  Cleaning the bathrooms.

    What do you have to hound DH to do for you? dishes! he always leaves them on the counter, even when the dishwasher is empty.  Makes me crazy!

    Mine does this, too!!

  • Sorry! Meant to say that you can add my husband in on this one as well. Grrr Angry
  • 1.  Favorite Chore:  Honestly, I'm not really a fan of any of them!

    2.  Least Favorite Chore:  Cleaning floors.  And I feel like I need to do that constantly with Jillian crawling

    3.  What does DH do without asking:  Not much chore-wise.  He is very good about taking care of projects and repairs though.

    4.  What do I have to hound DH to do:  Pick up after himself.  I wish he would simply throw away garbage, put dishes in the dishwasher, put laundry in the hamper, and put his things away.  That alone would make my life a million times easier

    5.  What 1 thing would I hire out?  Definitely all of the freakin' scrubbing

    Mine too!  How is it that a DH knows how to install a washer and dryer, but claims not to know how to use it???

    1. What is your favorite "chore" to do. Sweeping and mopping the floor?! I hate chores though. This is the one I do. DH would NEVER do it!
    2. What is your least favorite chore? Folding clothes. I only fold the baby's clothes. DH does the rest of the laundry.
    3. What does DH do with out asking everytime? Laundry.
    4. What do you have to hound DH to do for you? Taking out the trash. It is the one thing I am not willing to do. I don't know why.
    5. If you could hire out 1 thing, what would it be? Cleaning the bathroom. It needs it so bad, and when I do clean the bathroom, I get it super clean, but I kinda rebel against doing it. I think it's because I had to clean the bathroom as a child and I always thought it was unfair because I never peed on the floor!!!
