Household Tasks

What’s the household task you most dislike doing? Why do you think that is — is it the task itself, or something more?

It’s dusting and sweeping. I don’t do it at home since I suffer from asthma and usually just a little bit of the dust can get me started on a sneezing marathon and have an attack of breathing difficulty. We have a maid who comes in Monday to Saturday and usually sweeps my room and does a quick wiping of the floor with a mix of cleaning liquid and water using a cloth. Next would be ironing and folding of clothes as I suck at both. What bugs me the most though is that India is a very dusty and polluted nation and just from leaving the widows open for a few hours, you can attract all kinds of dust that stick to your belongings.

I hate having to iron shirts and pants and we give most of our clothes to a guy who has an ironing cart and who comes and does the ironing for you. I’ve manage to make my bed, yes I’ve managed to “learn” that although only when I change the sheets! I’m not gonna make my bed everyday.
