Things I Hate To Do

This time I'm listing the things I have to do but really hate doing and try to avoid at all cost or procrastinate until it just can't be put off any longer.

1.  Putting petrol in the car - this one seems easy enough, don't know why I hate it so much.

2.  Ironing - it builds up and up and up until it seems insurmountable.

3.  Wearing sunscreen and/or a hat - I hate the feel of sunscreen and I hate hat hair, I'd rather stay out of the sun.

4.  Studying or writing assignments - fortunately I haven't had to do either in years, but boy could I come up with amazing procrastination techniques for these ones.

5.  Any kind of health check up - include here dentist, eyes, pap smears!!

6.  Cleaning - why won't the house clean itself or why can't I have a cleaning fairy??

7.  Paperwork - of any kind, filing, bills, tax returns, lessons plans, reporting, writing programs, etc, etc!

8.  Starting a new job - I get so nervous I feel sick.

9.  Wearing togs - well of course, even when I had a much better body (and didn't appreciate it) I've never liked exposing that much skin.  These days it's boardies and a rashie!

10.  Exercise - meh, do I have to?

The crazy thing is that when I actually do do any of these things I feel so good about it.  You would think that good feeling would be motivation enough...but, no.

Next time I'm listing things I love to do.  That will be much more fun!


  1. I am SO with you on pretty much ALL of the above.

    But guess what? I actually exercised today. Like, in actual work-out clothes and with a drink bottle and everything! For a whole 30 minutes!

    Are you proud of me?

  2. So proud of you, Jodie!!
    I'm going to, too. Yes, I am. Haven't yet, but I will.

  3. *puts up hand* Me too on most of those. Especially the petrol thing. I'll drive on vapours for a couple of days until I can find an excuse for hubby to take my car and ask him to fill it up while he's out!

    I don't iron. Simple.

    Sunscreen I do, hats I refuse. As for exercise, I know I should, but you know...

  4. All of the above. Ironing pile is massive. Couldn't give a shit. Think I may have given up for life. Plus I would like to add, taking out the rubbish to the wheelie bin. Hates. :)

  5. woke back up to read the blog.. hate emptying out food which has gone mouldy in the bottom of the fridge, and hate putting petrol in.. I also hate simply having to DECIDE what to eat for dinner!!!! the cooking part is ok.. just the DECISION!!!!!exercise I HATE! but did 2 hours yesterday and 1 today.. I am so sore, and exhausted.. but I'm so PROUD!!!!!!!!! now, back to sleep for me.. I need it..

  6. Ironing? What is this thing you speak of? I HATE ironing, avoid it at all costs, put washing machine on lower spin cycle just to help with the avoidance.
    I hate hats... but as I er... mature, I have realised they are my friend... but really, hat hair is the pits!


Just one little comment will make my day.
