| | Re: Hating housechores but had to do it.
I hate house chores, too, and nothing can make me like it. So, I found ways to prevent having so much to do. I keep everything organized - a place for everything and everything in its place. Instead of setting things down wherever, I put stuff back where it belongs when I finish with it. I keep everything clean - floors, walls, toilet, tub, cabinets, etc. so I don't have major cleaning to do all at once, knowing I won't want to. This way, when the house needs to be picked up, it's never all that big of a job. I have never been a neat freak. I like things clean and organized, but I'm likely to leave the newspaper sprawled on the table after reading it. I have a tendency to drop things on the dining room table when I come in the house, so that almost always needs clearing. My linen closet is neatly folded and organized, but I have laundry to do. Dresser drawers are folded and organized, but dirty clothes are on the bedroom floor. The kitchen floor is swept and mopped, but the carpets in the house need vacuuming. One bathroom is clean, but the other one needs Mr. Clean to come and do it LOL.
My point is to create some kind of system that works for you so you don't have the whole house and all the laundry to do at the same time. Work on one room a day or two rooms a day. The fact is, house cleaning has to be done no matter your occupation. If you worked, you'd still have to clean up and do laundry. Wrap your head around that and see if you can muster a better attitude about it. It makes no sense to say in so many words " whether I work a job or not, I prefer to be a slob." I know that's not what you meant, but it's what you're saying in essence. Sounds like you are bored and unhappy. Consider counseling to help you work through what is bothering you.
