Forgot to say - if grocery shopping is considered a chore I love it! I could spend hours in a grocery store.

I have all ways liked to cook. I am retired and busted up but I still love to get in the kitchen and make my dinner, or cook for my family
Cook with passion or don't cook at all

I love grocery shopping as well, but I hate putting everything away once I get home. I like washing dishes most of the time but would still love a dish washer (my hands get very dry and cracked). I don't mind washing clothes, but I don't care much for folding them (towels are okay--I hate folding fitted sheets). If we have the money, I kind of enjoy paying the bills.

I don't really think of cooking as a chore, but I think of the things that go along with it as chores (chopping, peeling, etc.). I enjoy cooking but don't always like chopping, etc.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I kinda like folding laundry. Especially when my son's in the room and I'm folding whites. Everytime I get to his little tighty whities I have to say, "Awww, look how cute these are. And look no skid marks yet." If he's not in the room sometimes I walk around the house looking for him with a pair of his underwear on my head. He just rolls his eyes and says, "Your wierd!" My reply is always, "I am too!"
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

I like to mow the lawn. The fresh cut grass smells great. Unfortunately, all too often, I have to do it fast an do not get to enjoy it.

Oh yes! I also enjoy grocery shopping, when I go alone.
One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

Well, I must love all of them because I just got up at 4am on a day off to do a TON of them!
Ok, maybe that's called procrastination..... I shoulda done them last night.
Oh well.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
