Socks (and a quick Giveaway) – CLOSED

One of the munchkins drew the winning name for this Giveaway and that winning name was Kim from Haraeth. Congratulations Kim! Send me an email at angelastamps @ hotmail . com (no spaces) and I’ll send you the list of stamp sets you can choose from for your prize.

And here are the mindless, meaningless, insignificant jobs that we really, really, really hate to do (and I have to say that you all thought of some good ones):

*De-pooping the yard (this was Kim’s choice and she should win just because this is one of the grossest jobs ever!)

*Taking out the garbage (if Sweatiepy doesn’t do this job here…it doesn’t get done)

*Cleaning out drains (another Sweatiepy job)

*Cleaning the fish tank (another Sweatiepy job….is there an echo in here?)

*Putting the clean, folded clothes away (Phew! This is a job that I do. I actually do something around here!)

*Dusting (my job too)

*De-skinning raw chicken (super-yuck!)

*Mending clothes (does anyone do this anymore?)

*Loading and unloading the dishwasher (this was a popular choice and one I completely agree with)

*Pulling weeds (another hated chore around here too)

I’m just glad that there are so many other woman out there suffering right along with me…


It’s time for another Giveaway, don’t you think?

If you look on the right-hand side of my blog, you will see my Giveaway Details…and you will also see that I am going to be running weekly Giveaways for awhile. Anyone who leaves a comment for every post each week (starting on each Sunday and running through that Saturday) will automatically be entered into the weekly Giveaway for a free stamp set….and I have a huge pile of them that you can choose from:

This quick Giveaway is different though…I’ve been sitting here eyeing up our sock basket that is filling up and growing by leaps and bounds and I really, really, really do not want to fold them. I really don’t.

On a whole, I usually don’t mind cleaning my home. There are a few jobs that I don’t care for as much (ie. mopping the floors, cleaning toilets, laundry…) but cleaning the house has never been the “one thing” that I hated to do around the house. That would be cooking. Which is a whole other story. But socks? Socks are so insignificant and folding them is such a small job really…so why do I dislike that job so much? I’m sure the fact that there are six people in our home which equals 12 feet which equals a lot of dirty socks to clean and then fold might factor into the equation a little bit.

I’m giving that basket a dirty look right now just thinking about it. Let’s see…is there any way that I can read a book and fold socks at the same time? Hmmm…

So, what’s your small, insignificant job around the house that you really don’t like to do? Let me know in the comments of this post and I’ll have a fun thank you gift of one free stamp set from “The Pile” that I’ll save just for you.

(This Giveaway will run until Thursday, August 21st…whenever I wake up on that day and get myself over to the computer I will shut the Giveaway down and draw for a winner.)
