I hate trying to get grease out of my husband's jeans.  He tells me not to, but, I can't just leave it in there and I can't put them in my washer the way they are.  I finally found something that helps a lot with getting it out, so, I am on a mission now.  lol

Cleaning my oven!  When I got this new stove, I was going to get the self cleaning, but then decided not to.  I am kicking myself for not!  What was I thinking!!!!!!

Hey Kylez, have you tried Zoot or something like that?  It works great too.  You just soak the greasy clothing in it.

I'm an extreme cleaning and orginzation freak, but the one thing I absolutely dislike doing for some reason is vacuuming! Can't explain why, I just hate doing it. Thankfully we only have two small areas in the house that need vacuumed and my husband doesn't mind doing it, so that's his chore, and I do everything else lol

The stool, I hate cleaning it.  Cleaning all of our french doors.  It takes forever as we have them all over the house.

I dont' mind cleaning-each time I clean I move furniture (NUTTY I KNOW) but I would say what I DISLIKE is getting the grease/grime off range hood and upper cabinets (NOT done often that is for sure)

I HATE ironing...it's like, as soon as you put the clothes on, they're wrinkled anyway...But, I have to iron everything - since I have to 'hang dry' all of my pants...I'm tall and can't have my pants shrink in the dryer...Good topic Susie...

I hate ironing too Andi, but, I don't iron too much.  My Mother irons everything!  I like to see my hubby's hankies all nice and ironed.  I use to do all of his dress shirts, but, now I send them to the cleaners.  I got lazy.  LOL

I love clean windows, but, I really don't care to wash them.  It just takes forever.  My hubby usually will help, but, I usually do it during the day when he is at work. 

And, I don't mind washing and drying clothes, but, I hate folding them and putting them away.

Hate unloading the dishwasher!  lol  Everyone thinks that's silly, but, it just takes so long to do it.  I wish they would just magically put themselves away.

Closets, except for the one in our bedroom.  There always are boxes and containers of things I have squirreled away, thinking that I will need them -- or at the time I out them in a box/container, I am too rushed to bother to decide whether or not to toss.

I procrastinate and procrastinate and procrastinate on that.  In fact, I had in mind to work at it this past Monday, and I have yet to do more than shift a thing or two around in it.  I have needed to do this closet for at least two years.

Still plugging away, thanks for asking :) Taxol stopped shrinking the tumor, so starting FEC early next week. Not looking forward to it, but hopeful that I can use sheer stubborness to keep all those yucky SE's at bay (I'm a Taurus AND French Canadian, this chemo doesn't know what it's up against lol)

I may try tomorrow to tackle that closet in the back bedroom, as I think it may be showery here for at least part of the day.  Probably I will not get it done, but if I can lessen the floor clutter in there by at least two boxes, that will be great.

No.  However, I did try, managing to pull out at least one thing for the give-away bag.  Not sure I will get to it tomorrow, as I am planning to go pick blueberries in the morning.

Ironing following by vacuuming.  Danny vacuums now.  We rarely iron because we both hate it.

How many can I name?  LOL  My husband helps me so much that I don't have to worry about everything getting done.  And, if I need big stuff done, we just hire a cleaning service to do it. 

The toilet is one of the worst!  Not real fond of cleaning the kitty box either, so, I let my husband do that all by himself.  LOL

Love your posts Susie!

I hate cleaning the shower! I wish I had a magic wand to make the dirt, and soap disappear. If anyone out there has a magic or really good product, I am all ears!

I will do toliets any day of the week -  don't know why,  but I hate to dust!  My daughter dusts our house twice a week - thank you, Ally.  I will scrub showers with a toothbrush, before I dust.

Hate cleaning the shower too.  Has anyone heard of putting car wax or polish on it to make it stay cleaner longer?  I googled that one day.  Sounds strange.

Fitted bed sheets are my arch nemesis! I've youtubed more videos than i'm willing to admit to trying to master the art of folding them, but alas, I still haven't conquered them. I do however have a fun trick to hide the mess : When you have a full set of sheets including pillowcases, fold everything up and put it into one of the pillowcases, it keeps the set together and hides the dreaded fitted sheet mess :)

I have a trick for the sheets also.  I fold the outer edges in to the middle, doesn't matter how they look, them fold them in half and roll them up.  I do the same with the top sheets, then I slide both into one of the pillowcases, add the other pillowcase to the mix and it's good to go.  I don't really care how neat they look because frankly nobody should be looking in my linen closet and judging me. 
I hate dusting.  It's the moving of all the knickknacks and shelves that are up high and there is so much to dust.  I used to have ceiling fans and hated dusting them.   I have less rooms to dust and I have downsized the bric a brac but it's still a pain.   

What I love to do though is dishes.  It is so soothing and everyone else is off doing other stuff and I have can just daydream and rinse and load the dishwasher.  I even like unloading it early in the morning before anyone else is up.  I start coffee for the coffee drinkers, unload the dishwasher and start breakfast.
