You'd get a shorter list if you asked what I *don't* do every day, lol.
Laundry - at least 2 loads
Dishwaser - at least once a day
Trash - this is supposedly DH's job but working 6-7 days a week 12-18 hour days he rarely actually has time to do it
Feeding of the cats, dog, fish, crabs, gerbils and ducks - as well as any tank/cage maintenance
All meals for the humans............
That's the daily basis stuff, then there's the things that get done as needed.....

My husband works nights on the weekends, so he sleeps most of the day. I don't have an "outside" job so I take care of the house. If I don't do it, it doesn't get done. I do wish my husband would do things around the house without my having to ask him. But if I do ask, he doesn't grumble too much. I think the things I hate the most are folding and putting away the laundry. And dishes. I love to dust and mop and vacuum. I even like cleaning the bathroom.

Why cant we all just live out of laundry baskets??? I see NO problem in it... Now my hubby??? Wants to get his socks and underware out of a drawer... sheesh...

and as far as the whole dishes concept... YUCK!!! My kids get frightened when I get the glass plates out... "Is Grandma coming to dinner?" Paper all the way...

My "daily" chore... take 1 gallon of water out of my Rams tank.. pour that water on a few house plants...
I have many things that I do all the time... but nothing that is "daily" except my Rams tank.

Oh geez! I feel SOOO lazy now. I don't think that I have ONE daily chore. For all of you that sweep on a daily basis or even three times a week, MAN You must live with dirty people. I'm lucky if I get around to doing it once every two weeks. Then again, it is just me and my fiance and I am gone 4 days a week on business. I am only home Friday through Sunday and things just get done when they need to get done. I do the laundry on Friday morning, sweep on Sunday night after I pack my clothes for the week (if it needs it), dishes as they are dirtied, cat's liter box is cleaned when he starts throwing liter on the floor. My cats the coolest. When he wants it cleaned he will toss out about a 1/4 cup of liter on the floor. When I walk in the bathroom and see it, it immediately gets cleaned and he's a happy camper. I don't think he likes the liter box perfectly clean. When I clean it, he immediately comes into the bathroom and jumps in his liter box and uses it. I can immediately clean it out again and he wil just jump back in it and go again. He's too funny. I'm lucky to mop the kitchen floor once a month. But again, our house doesn't get dirty. While I'm gone all week he takes care of everything and when I get home on the weekends, all I have to do is pick up after myself. He has classes Monday through Friday from 8 to 6 so he's not really home either. Man, now that I think about it, why do we even have an apt?

oh rudy, everytime you make a post i get to read it, because it notifies me. any how, don't worry about your posts killing the topic. i'm making this post while my dad is sleeping...i can hear him snooring in the next room. i didn't need to tell you that, but that's just another thing interesting in my life.
