I really enjoy mowing the lawn - I have a certain way and order I do it to acheive a good result in the shortest time possible. I put it in the same category as 'just something that needs to be done', much like the dishes, the laundry and general tidying up of the house.
DP seems to take all day when he does it ...and it is a chore that for some reason needs not only acknowledgement, but demands a round of applause
I'd feel like we'd be throwing money away by paying someone else to do it.
How is it approached in YOUR household?
