Mr. Maid ...

The weekends almost upon us and I'm looking forward to it. Then again, when have I not looked forward to a weekend :D And I already have plans for the entire weekend laid out for me. It involves sitting in front of the TV and watching the Olympics! LOL!

I know the track and field events have already started cos I caught some during lunch with wifey at the Chinese restaurant across the street from our place today and I seriously felt like taking the rest of the day off to watch it. Having to work during the live events, I can only catch the highlights at night and it just isn't the same.

But since I don't work on Saturdays, I'm going to vegetate all day in front of the TV watching any live event I can catch tomorrow and Sunday. And honey, don't expect any of the usual household chores to get done, k? LOL! Wifey and me normally do our household chores together during the weekends but I guess that's not going to be the case until the Olympics is over :D

As strange as it may seem, I do enjoy doing household chores with wifey, though there are some chores I absolutely hate doing. And since we're talking about household chores here, I guess this tag I got from Shemah comes in handy right about now ... hehehe ...

She tagged me with this meme that has something to do with household chores that you hate doing. It seemed really appropriate for this post so I'll squeeze it in here :D

Now the tag is pretty simple really. All you need to do is list down the household chores you hate and why you hate it. Then copy the image provide and tag as many people as you want. I've got a few of you in mind already ... LOL! Add your blogs link to the domesticated divas linky love and leave a comment at Stripe and Yellow to be added to the master list and you're done.

Ok, now back to the household chore I hate the most. I am by nature a cleanliness freak and I'm perpetually cleaning up the place when I have idle time on my hands. And I seriously don't mind doing household chores cos I believe it shouldn't just be something that's left for the womenfolk to handle on their own. Afterall you got married to her right so you should be sharing the load too.

And I have no qualms about doing things that some men would frown upon, like doing the laundry and hanging them out to dry, washing and mopping the kitchen, ironing, cleaning the bathrooms, sweeping the floors and even watering the plants outside. In fact I can't stand the place being dirty and sometimes I'm even fussier than wifey in that aspect.

In a day, if I'm home, I can probably sweep our bedroom floor at least a minimum of four times, that is on top the amount of times wifey sweeps the place. Oh and by the way, wifey is a cleanliness freak too ... LOL! Like I said, I don't mind doing household chores but the household chore that I hate the most is washing dishes!

In my family, I'm the official designated dishwasher and can't seem to weasel my way out of it simply because wifey is the much better cook in the family and we have this understanding which is, she cooks, I wash. I seriously hate having to wash dishes. It can be quite a chore and it's not as easy as it seems to wash dishes you know. Sometimes the oil and whatnots can be so darn difficult to remove and requires some effort.

I sometimes wish I had a dishwasher at home but for now, I guess the NickPhillips 200D model will just have to keep on doing his tireless job of dish washing at least until I learn to cook better than wifey which is highly unlikely! Maybe if cows grew wings, that might happen though. But of course that could all change right now if any of you kind souls would sponsor me a nice little personal dishwasher of my own ... hahaha!

So I'm expecting our house to be like a pigsty this weekend cos wifey is also an avid sports fan and we're both going to be hanging on to the remote control with the kids behind us whining about wanting to watch some cartoon or kiddie show. Sorry boys, the TV's all ours this weekend, you can watch your cartoons during the school holidays next week ... hehehe ...

Oh and don't think I've forgotten, ya. I'm going to tag Kadus Mama, Jen, Chegu Carol, Tammy, Marzie and Perry. I'd really love to find out what household chore you guys hate the most, if you even do household chores that is ... LOL! Oh and don't forget to copy this image too, ok?
