Psi (for Y)

From the messy countertop of the Lazy Housewife...

You! We are supposed to put ourselves last - and usually we moms do. But we also deserve time for us. Don't you forget about you! To spotlight you all, here are a couple of Lazy Housewife questions I asked friends that you can answer in the comments:

  • What is your most hated cleaning job?
    • bathrooms/toilets got the most votes
    • mopping
    • dusting
    • windows
    • laundry
    • garbage
  • Do you live close to relatives? 57% said no. How about you?
  • Yummy Recipes from You! 
    • When I celebrated my first year of blogging, I had a party and everyone brought a dish (shared a recipe). Here is the post if you'd like to see what the winners brought
    • I met a couple of new foodie friends with awesome recipes during the challenge:
Y Stress Reliever - Yoga, of course. I've tried this PIYO class recently that combines Pilates and Yoga and it's fabulous! Totally kicking my butt!

Yes, I only have commonly confused "Y" words for you:
yin and yang (not ying and yang)
you're (contraction of you and are) / your (possessive)

if you stop cleaning, then it will get so covered in dirt... keep your house dark, then the dirt disappears...

Yoga is awesome and so are you! Thanks!

Least favorite cleaning: vacuuming. but on your list - garbage
My closest relative is 12.5 hours away via air. Yin Yang I get, your and you're I have to think about every time. Fun post

Dusting!!!! Because I have to move everything to get to the dust (not that I do *cringes*)

Yes, I hate it more than cleaning toilets, and that's saying a lot when you live in a house with three males, and some are too concerned about aiming, if you know what I mean.

Nick Wilford said...

I was going to say toilets, but then Stina reminded me how annoying I find it to move everything off my wife's chest of drawers to dust it, not to mention dusting individual items!

I don't live near to my relatives, they're at the other end of the country, but we meet up regularly on holidays, in fact we did that just the other weekend.

I really do enjoy yoga. It's a nice way to stay my days.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Dishes and laundry, because they are never done.
And I don't live very close to my family.

Heather M. Gardner said...

There isn't a cleaning job that I like so they are all equally hated.

I need to get rich and famous so I can hire someone. Then I'd end up cleaning before they got there so they wouldn't see my mess.

Dana said...

Like Heather, I hate all cleaning jobs. :)

I'm one thousand miles away from my family. :(

Rena said...

I hate doing laundry. The endless folding makes me want to strangle people. It's the chore I delegate the most often.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Yin and Yang can definitely get mixed up. Bathrooms also gets my vote. One more day left Tara. Thank you for your exciting Lazy Housewife Posts and Editing Tips.

Mark Means said...

My wife and I, pretty much, share the cleaning duties...though 'share' is used very loosely as I'm the one who winds up doing most of it, lol.

I have always hated dusting but, with a cat, it's something that has to be done.

As usual, great post and great tips :)

Carrie-Anne said...

I hate cleaning bathrooms, but at least I understand the need to regularly do it. My pathetic ex and his even more pathetic, dysfunctional parents truly couldn't understand why someone would want to clean a toilet or bathroom. Yeah, they're what my native Southwestern Pennsylvanians call Ridgers, which isn't a good thing!

I'm always surprised by how many people don't get the difference between your and you're. Do they just not read very much, or did they not care or pay attention when English teachers corrected them?

Carol Kilgore said...

I HATE cleaning bathrooms. And mopping and running the vacuum kills my back. House cleaning is not my strong suit. But I'm hell on clutter!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I hate dusting! Fortunately my husband enjoys it. He says it's therapeutic while watching stressful sporting events. I tell him to therapeute away!

Christine Rains said...

I'm not one of those folks that live close to relatives. Yoga is awesome!

LD Masterson said...

Windows are the worse because I have old fashioned double hung windows (not the kind that tilt in for cleaning) and a two story house.

Relatives close by? Well, my younger son and his family are within walking distance (about a mile) so I guess that's a yes.

Barbara White Daille said...

I hate everything equally. But I guess I will pick dusting, since I'm allergic to dust. Unfortunately, it seems to multiply when you look at it.
