    I have decided to tackle one dreaded chore today. I am challenging others to do so as well. Whether you are at home or on the job, tell us what your dreaded chore is. Hopefully, we can inspire eachother to mop the bathroom, file the files, edge the walkway or whatever.

    My name: Chickenmaven

    At home or work: Both! I am a home-office slave, mom & businessowner.

    Dreaded chore: One gigantic basket of unmatched socks. I plan to match all that have a mate and throw the rest in the rag box. I don't know why I hate matching socks, I just do. Hate it! I'd rather clean the coop...[​IMG]

    C'mon and join me! Maybe we can keep this thread going. I'd love to challenge myself again tmorrow.

    My dreaded chore is this: Move the big wood pile that I suspect is sheltering a family of possums way too close to the coop. Great! I just heard thunder, I'd better get to it:/
