Morning, VSGers! I'm finally sleeping well enough at night that my body is waking up on its own at 5am again. I did a ton of packing yesterday and our house is much closer to be ready to move. The person I hired to help pack comes back today and we'll hit it hard again. I'm hoping by the end of today I'll run out of things I can easily pack.
QOTD: What is your least favorite household chore? This packing has really made me think about housework. I just really, really hate packing and I hate the disorganization of it. It causes me terrible anxiety. But, on a day-to-day basis, I really dislike cleaning showers. I hire someone to clean my house weekly and, for me, it's really about her getting those bathrooms sparkling without me having to touch them. I will not have a cleaner when we move, so boo.

Good morning! Justice (foster dog) and I have been up for a while and done all the early morning things so now we are relaxing on the sofa.
QOTD: Timely question as today is laundry and cleaning day after church. I hate all cleaning but love a clean house so I do it. When I worked full-time, I had a housekeeper come in every two weeks, but now I have enough time and am healthy enough that I feel obligated to do it. I especially hate cleaning everything in the bathroom, but also mopping the other floors, but really I don't like any of it...

Heading out for a hike soon and then going to an Oscar party tonight...
QOTD: I despise cleaning bathrooms enough to hire a housecleaner too, Erin! I'll clean anything else. But bathrooms are so much work and icky too. I clean my house in MI though because house cleaners are hard to come by in such a small town area. It makes me appreciate having someone to do it in CA.
B - coffee, yogurt, berries, grain free granola
L - real good pizza

Good morning! Had a wonderful hike with Emmy yesterday, posted a few pictures of the sunny day. Dinner at my uncle's assisted living was very nice, went back to his room and watched an Andre Rieu concert. Getting ready for Oscars tonight, one of my favorite nights on television. I love looking at all the beautiful outfits on the red carpet:-)
QOTD-It's silly, but I do not like emptying the dishwasher. I think the dislike comes from my childhood. My father used to pound on the floor above my bedroom everyday at 5:00 to let me know it was time for me to empty the dishwasher, despite the fact that I knew it was time to do it and was always on my way to do it! It's silly, but the feelings are still there:-)

Today is my grandson's 3rd birthday and we are having everyone over for pizza and cake tonight. So I am straightening and child proofing my house. (He touches EVERYTHING!) I used to have to sit in my wheelchair and direct my husband to pick up, put away, dust & vacuum. Now, I do it. I'm not sure who is more pleased, him or me!
QOTD: What an appropriate question today. I hate, hate, hate cleaning the bathroom. I still don't do it, my mom handles that one chore as it doesn't require her to move around much and she can sit down when she needs to. I may have to have someone come in and do it once she is no longer able to do it. I really despise it that much.
M1: Coffee, PP caramel, miralax
