House Chores
November 08, 2006

Other than the occasional visits my mom pats to Kuwait, my dad and I are living alone here. Every morning, I go to my job and he goes to his. Then when I'm done, I go to my second job and we end up meeting up at home at the same time, around 7:00 p.m. When home, sometimes he prepares lunch and sometimes I do, but recently its been mostly me. After that come the doing the dishes, which I ofcourse take care of, no way would I let my dad do the dishes. Then comes the daily light house organizing which we both handle. Each one is responsible for his own room but both work together on the rest of the house. Luckily, we got someone who comes in twice a week for house cleaning. Then at the end of the night before sleeping, there is taking out the garbage. And then every Friday, I got the laundry to take care of and, after, sometimes got ironing to do. Although I hate all house chores, I hate them in this order (from worst to least):
(1) ironing
(2) dishes
(3) organizing
(4) taking out the garbage
(5) cooking
(6) laundry

Dont know why I wrote about this, but yesterday I was too damn tired that I didnt do anything and today when I woke up, I looked around and everything looked so messy. You can not postpone house chores cos it will only get worse and it is one thing you can not escape!

Note: I am against having "help". Got used to the idea of taking care of myself ever since university dorms life.

    Laundry is cheesecake. I enjoy that. Ironing is good for meditation. I think it is sexy when a man irons.

    Taking out the garbage is a chore but there are worse things like scrubbing the stove top or cleaning the kitchen up after a big meal.

    Dishwashers are heavenly: rinse the crockery and the utensils off in hot water; turn it on when it is full and later: voila, you have sparkling clean dishes.

    jewaira.yeah laundry is simple cos u gto washing machines. luckily i dont have to clean the stove or anything else cos we got someone to do that, i do that only when it is something simple. as for the dishes, we still do it the old fashioned way, no dishwasher:P as for ironing... did i mention i starting to love ironing;)

    delicately. for some reason, many girl friends of mine like washing the bathroom. i dont know why. i used to back in the dorm, would turn on the music on high volume and go for it. I guess u can do any house chore with music on loud:)

    msb. hehe by ur list, looks like we have much in common:)
