Household job I don't like to do
October 18, 2017 12:39pm CST
The one household job I put off and put off until I can't put if off any longer, is vacuuming under things! I need to vacuum under my bed and under the guest bed. But, that is going to mean taking things out from under the bed and putting them back once finished. I admit, I store things under both beds. Do you do that, if you have space under your bed? The other place I need to vacuum under are the living room couch and chairs. But that means moving the heavy furniture around. It must be done. It will be done sometime this week. Ugh, the thought.

I took everything from under the beds here, recently of course. I was tired of having to move things out from under the bed to vacuum. I do move the furniture several times a year to vacuum under there, but it is a pain to move all of it.
The 1 household chore I greatly dislike doing is cleaning the stove. I just dislike that. As it relates to storing things under the bed, I only store empty suitcases and boxes there, with naphthalene balls in them to prevent roach infestation.
There are several chores I don´t like. Fortunately, after I was diagnosed with cancer, I decided that there were some things I would not do and others I could not do. Vacuuming under heavy furniture is something I will not do anymore. So Leticia does that and I cook.
@LeaPea2417 In our previous apartment we had wall to wall carpet in every room. My husband is allergic to the dust and carpeting always have a bit of dust. Here we have real wood floors in all rooms except in the kitchen and the 3 bathrooms, where we have tiles. He breaths so much better and never had cough since we have no more carpeting.
I also don't like cleaning the under part of our bed. I don't use the vacuum because I hate having to get it from the storage then attach this and that. I simply just wipe the under part with a plastic broom with adjustable handle. Then, I mop it and let the electric fan dry the floor after.

'Under the bed' is where I would put things when I'm in a hurry to clean my room (Saturday mornings, back when "Saturday Morning Cartoons" were a big deal and when 'watching them' was my reward for having a 'clean' room )
