I hate loading the dishwasher (which reminds me) and I hate unloading it but unless a ghost comes along it's just moi.........so I unload it in addition to all the dishes in the drainer.............noone else is going to do it that's for sure..........however there is a wonderful dishwasher detergent here that's of German origin and wished that we had in the states.......it's fantastic.............

I like washing up at work and at home but I don't like putting the dishes away or wiping benches.

I hate house work, but love mowing the lawn. I use to do it once a week, until I broke the 3rd lawn mower. Now I only get to do it once in awhile when hubby isn't home.

I like hand washing dishes but hate putting them away. Laundry I like washing but not folding or putting away. I vacuum almost every day because of the dog and cat hair. I'm enjoying chores less and less because I never feel like I'm caught up and everything gets dirty in no time. DH never helps and it irritates me to no end. I would be happy if he would at least put things back after using them. When I was single I never worked this much to keep my house clean. I don't even have kids. I hate shopping because it takes a whole day and I hafto drive 140 miles round trip. Of course I only go once every two to three weeks but it adds up to a massive load of shopping including pet food, cat litter etc and then I hafto put it all away. After all that I'm utterly exhausted.
