At least you have a fancy pants vacuum.
lol exactly but I too covet your vacuum!
I have the best of both worlds! Wait. Hmmm
I’d rather stay indoors anyway. And how long does it take to vacuum versus cutting all that grass? I think your glass is half full.
When I had a huge yard I had to do the riding mower chore and I hated it (maybe having a cute boy on the mower with me would have helped).
Warcrygirl: yeah, but that assumes vacuuming is my ONLY boring indoor chore. I was just thinking how my kids are always soooo happy to help JB, but totally resistant to joining me in household work. Hmm, cool yardwork tools/shop equipment vs 409 and laundry — go figure. :)
SO jealous–I had no idea your property bordered a creek/river/pond/lake-thing.
Lesley — it doesn’t, that was at JB’s family’s cabin on the Umpqua river about 90 minutes away. We go there a lot on the weekends.
I hate inside chores, but would work outside all day, and I don’t have a riding mower or a view!
I so agree.
D’oh! I’m an idiot.
Oh well, still jealous since you aren’t too far from the cabin. :)
I cut the grass about 50% of the time, but my husband vacuums 99% of the time, even though I don’t actually mind vacuuming.
The only thing I pretty much never do is my most hated chore – washing the pots and pans that don’t go in the dishwasher. I’ll happily do laundry and clean washrooms if it means I never have to feel floating bits of food bump into my fingers in the murkey water. *gag*
My 7-y-o son says his new year’s resolution is to help wash the dishes. So, when does that start?
Oh, yes. In our house, Mom is in charge of everything…except ice cream. Daddy is in charge of that!
Yeah, and when they do finally do an inside chore they want a frigging medal for it. Just had “discussions” about this last night.
