  11. Dishes... so glad to see I'm not alone in Dishes Dread. I'll trade some of the ladies above... you can do my dishes & I'll clean a bathroom!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hate the dishes. It seems like no matter how often you wash them, they always stack up on the kitchen counter!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The bathroom for sure! The kids leave GLOBS (is that even a word :))of toothpaste in the sink every morning and I can't stand it!!! So, I clean them everyday!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Definitely has to be bathroom-related. Shower, tub, toilet? All of 'em bite big time!

  15. Hmmm, the cat box is high on the list as is "poo picking" in the back yard after the dogs. But worse than both of those things is tediously lint rolling and vacuuming my couch. I got it with the intent to reupholster it - it has glorious bones but is covered in a fabric that somehow not only attracts fur but gets it stuck in its weave. I am in an upholstery class now working on smaller projects and learning as I go. I sure would love to make a slip cover in the mean time! <3

    Happy Friday!!

  16. MOPPING! I put it off for as long as humanly possible...which means dried food everywhere. Oh how I hate pulling out that mop.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yay!! I'm so excited that I won! I was hoping the "Danielle" you referred to was me and it was! I can hardly wait to start stampin' away (:

  22. Dishes. My husband always does them. But, we just bought a dishwasher finally, so I can unload them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Dishes. With little ones underfoot and needing things it seems to go a bit like this: Hands wet. Hands dry. Hands wet. Hands dry. Hands wet....

  26. Scrubbing the shower! We have those nas-ty glass sliding doors for our shower/tub and they make getting in and out so terribly hard and double the surface space to scrub. Yuck!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What fun giveaways! My least favorite chore is putting away the laundry. I wash it, I dry it, I put it in the laundry basket...and there it sits...and sits...and sits. Until eventually I've pretty much worn everything from the basket and it's time to do laundry again!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. Definitely putting the laundry. I could wash it and fold it all day long, but when it comes to putting it away in drawers--I hate it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Definately dusting and my house shows it! Arizona is SO dusty you dust one day and then next it looks like you did nothing, very discouraging! I would LOVE to win the dvd...I have failed (ie looks pretty bad) at covering several pieces of furniture.
