and all I did was clean the bathroom, do the laundry, wash the floors, clean Odin's crate, and go shopping! I'm pooped. And only like 1/5 of the laundry is done...

Does anyone else take a long time to clean their bathroom? It seems to take forever for me! After I clean everything off the floor, clean off all the surfaces, then wash the tub, the tiles, the toilet, the counters, the sink...then I gotta wash the floor, then wash the towels and bath mats..mirrors...empty the garbage...takes too long!! I hate cleaning..

Same here. I can't stand cleaning. On weekends, I just let the house go a bit. And get it back in shape on Monday. I am always exhausted by the end of the day.

I grew up washing the bathroom so I'm quick at it. Then again, my bathroom is pretty small. Use Vim. It's easy to scrub with (sink and tub). I've been using it since it came out. You just have to rinse it well.

I got a laugh from your post because I misread it-- This is what I read:

I had to read it again because I thought, "No one in their right mind would add that to a list of chores...." http://bestsmileys.com/toliot/5.gif

considering how little my brain is functioning right now....I wouldn't have been surprised if I had said that...

(and to top it all off my BF is in a hissy fit mood...not good when I'm to tired to think... I don't think he was too happy that I bought a filing cabinet, even though I need one because I am swimming in unorganized papers because Odin ate the box that was my previous holder of file folders!)

Was the filing cabinet made of gold, or what?

She didn't say it, I read it. I hope Raingirl doesn't hate me after this...

when I read the first post I saw '' i pooped '' too!!! http://bestsmileys.com/lol/18.gif

I know how you feel Raingirl!! I hate cleaning. Because I'm a tad obsessive, it always takes FOREVER. And I don't get any credit for doing it !! http://bestsmileys.com/cleaning/4.gif

I try to avoid housework!! :cool: I had to do all the housecleaning when I was young, and now I hate it. I do the things that have to be done (dishes, laundry, bathroom, etc) but I only do windows if they are so bad I can't see out and I pretty much ignore cobwebs. I also HATE the house I live in which I think makes a big difference. It probably doesn't help that we have been remodeling this house for so many years I can't even remember when we started - his mom owns the house and she pays for all the materials but we have to do all the labor. The house was built in the 1890's and I swear it is going to just fall down one of these days. We have a rising air furnace which dumps dust on everything - so even if I dust it looks just as bad within an hour or so. The house has a rock foundation, and has settled, so nothing is square. I could go on, and on, and on. Right now (by that I mean for the past year 1/2) we have been using the dining room for our living room because we are remodeling the living room. I am so sick of being crammed into such a tiny space :yuck: I wasn't really bugging my husband to get it done because he was trying to get his new business off the ground, and then he had to buy a building for his business because he lost the guy who shared a rented space with him and couldn't afford the rent on his own - but now his business is going good and he really, really needs to get that room done!!!
