If the Housework Fairy could wave her magic wand so that you would be exempt from one household chore for the rest of your life, what would you choose, and why?
Jennifer Lohmann: There's no way laundry can top cleaning the bathroom for awful chores. Especially the toilet.
Pamela Hearon: Cleaning the litter box is my least favorite chore. My cat is an old diva (16 years old!) and, yes, I'm thankful she uses the litter box still. But two litter boxes, each used several times a day, keeps me hopping! And it's always YUKKY!
Cathryn Parry: Vacuuming. Vacuuming makes me cry. Luckily, I traded this with my husband--he vacuums, cooks and grocery shops. I do the rest. (I think I made a good deal.) :-)
Vicki Essex: Just one chore?
I'd love to have someone else clean the windows--something I never do anyhow!
Jeannie Watt: I love doing laundry, but I hate folding and ironing. My idea of heaven is to be able to make the clothes clean and have someone else put them away.
Laura Drake: Bad time to ask...I'm moving into my new house, so I'd say unpacking! But that's not truly housework, so I'll have to say vacuuming. After I had back surgery, I couldn't do it anymore - it flat hurt! So my dear Alpha Dog solved the problem. Three days later, Rosie, our robotic vacuum showed up (named after the robotic maid in the the Jetsons). See, it turns out, Texans don't DO vacuuming.
Claire McEwen: I know a lot of people have said cleaning the toilet is the worst, and I agree, but I'd add that cleaning the area around and behind the toilet is my least favorite of all!
Kris Fletcher: Wait - you mean we're supposed to be cleaning these things?
Now chime in, readers, and let us know what job YOU would gladly give up to the Housework Fairy. Remember, misery loves company!
