1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! ...uh, no. Why not? Have you seen any of the places I've lived?

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
No, not really.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
Doing dishes. Because no matter how many of them you do, they just DON'T GO AWAY.

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
I think if such a feat were actually possible, we would have ceased considering them "chores" centuries ago.

See #3.

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not? I think I'm a decent housekeeper, but not the best. I do try, but it is so hard to get stuff done when you're looking after a 6 month old who demands most of your time!
2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why? I like using my Swiffer, with both the dry and wet clothes. I just find that I get a better clean than with the mop or broom, and the Swiffer is a lot easier to use. No having to fill up the bucket, or anything like that.
3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most? Cleaning the bathtub. It just seems that no matter what I do, it never looks "clean". I know that it's an old tub, but it bothers me. I used Tilex on it a few days ago, and I haven't seen any rust stains since then.
4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"? I just buckle down and do them, just to get them over with
5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why? Cleaning the tub, for the reasons stated above.

Let me add that while I prefer things to be clean, I don't mind a bit of clutter. It's rather hard to be clutter-free when you have a limited amount of space

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
Hell, no! I just...don't really bother in the first place.
Truthfully, I'm a starving artist and I kinna live the life; either I'm going out with my friends or I'm working on my animation projects. I do enough housekeeping to make sure I don't get flies, but beyond that...

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
Not really, no.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
I guess taking out the garbage, primarily because it involves putting on enough gear to go out--not so bad in the summer, but in winter it kinna sucks--and then trying to cram my shit into the dumpster that's already overflowing because my apartment complex seems to generate the same amount of garbage as a small third world country...

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
Mostly, I try to do them when it's convenient rather than letting them pile up and then do a big ol' Chores Day.
Like only taking the garbage out when I'm going out anyway. Or when I'm cooking, I actually wash any pots or pans right after cooking the meal, even before eating it, so nothing gets all crusty or stuck, and then I wash the dish I ate out of right away too. Makes life a bajillion times easier.

5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?
Well, I guess that would be the dishes, cuz I kinna have this horrible habit of eating, like, every day.
But because I live alone, it's more like doing dish. ;)

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
Yes and no. I enjoy a clean house and I clean on a regular basis, but there are some things that I suck at like dusting and cleaning the sideboards...bleh

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
I like vacuuming our hardwood floors - I got a Shark for Christmas and it's freaking awesome.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
Cleaning the bathroom - it's just gross!

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
Well, I just think of it as an investment that's going to make me feel better the whole week. If I get all my chores done my mind feels clearer and I don't have to worry about them for awhile.

5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?
Dishes because we always have to eat and laundry because I've discovered that doing loads several days a week then it gets done faster.

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
I do not. My desk at work is immaculately organized and is a paragon of cleanly order. My home is not like that. If I've said it once, I've said it a million time: a clutter monster lives in my shadow.

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
I love doing laundry. There's something about clean clothes that satisfies something deep inside me.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
I loathe vaccuuming. I tend to avoid carpeted abodes. The fact that we're living in a fully carpeted townhouse at the moment irks me to no end.

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
Honestly? I blast Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. It's the only thing I've found that keeps me on task. For some reason I don't get distracted as easily if this is playing. I don't understand how or why, but since it works I don't question it.

5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?
Emptying the dishwasher. I do 90% of the cooking and inevitably, the dish/utensil I need is in the dishwasher. And since I’m in there already I just finish it off.

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
No, generally I do not. My spaces always become messy and chaotic. I'd like to think it's somewhat cute that my surroundings are so disordered... and that it means I'm a whirlwind of creativity and thought...but in the end, I realize it's due to downright laziness.

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
I love sweeping. I also love wiping things...like cleaning windows, the tv screen. And I adore trimming the hedges. Very cathartic.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
For some reason, I've always hated folding laundry. I also dislike doing the dishes...because nothing sucks more after you're stuffed and sleepy with delicious food in your gut than having to stand, bend, and scrub for an hour.

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
Music. Music makes just about anything better.

5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?
Spraying things with my Clorox "Anywhere Hard Surface Spray" and wiping it down. Love it. I imagine all the germs dying and I feel so accomplished. ...Maybe I'm OCD.

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?

A good one? No... but I guess I try sometimes. It just seems so useless to worry about a messy house when it's just not organized. Now if there's mold or flies or ants, then I'll clean stuff up. But if it's just some clothes laying around and books untidied or dusty then it's fine.

2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?

I love vacuuming. LOL It feels nice to suck up all that hair and dust and dirt. I like looking at what used to be there.

3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?

Folding laundry! So annoying.

4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?

Well, it does feel nice to live in a really clean place...

5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?

Tidying up stuff. I like having available deskspace.

1. Do you consider yourself to be a good housekeeper? Why or why not?
God no. I'm lazy and rarely ever clean. I hate it. :( My room is usually a mess and the rest of the house could use work. I -think- about cleaning but then I never do it.
2. Are there any household chores that you enjoy doing? If so, what and why?
I don't enjoy doing any. There's some I tolerate and the rest I hate.
3. Which household chore frustrates/angers you the most?
Cleaning the toilet. :( It thwarts me.
4. When doing household chores, what do you do to make them seem less of a "chore"?
Listen to music. Or I tell myself I'll get something nice afterwards. Usually I bargain with me and get the nice thing first and work after... but then I lie and don't clean. D:
5. Which chore do you find yourself doing most often, and why?
Picking up my room. It gets messy really fast.
