The WORLD’s worst JOB known to WOMAN


I like housework, I REALLY and truly do! I know it’s strange but I LOVE a super clean and organized home and I would rather do it MYSELF than hire a maid. That is one reason why in Brazil and China where maids are so cheap I didn’t have one. And I mean, what else am I gonna do all day if I’m not going out every day to work. I do enjoy cleaning.

BUT there is ONE job I detest, REALLY detest.

and that is OVEN CLEANING! You can’t get more ordinary and boring and horrible than this…

I have been procrastinating about cleaning my oven since I got home. Normally I don’t like this job and you can imagine after probably 4 years of it not being cleaned just how much I was dreading it. It was not a job I did on our short visits home and the kids didn’t clean it so I am sure it has been 4 years. And by the looks of the grease…yeah at least that long!

Today, after a quick walk with my friend I tackled it!! Tackled it with Easy OFF, scouring pads, baking soda, oven cleaner, razor blades and anything else I could find. I scrubbed and dug and let it soak and scrubbed it some more. I even took the oven door apart and cleaned it and FINALLY… hours later… it looks like new again.

And while I was at it I cleaned the stove and microwave and fridge and dish washer. ahhh…they look good.

AND Now this…



PLEASE nobody cook today and mess it up. I’m going out for supper AND I need a manicure! lol

Is there a horrible job that you just dread doing and that you keep putting off til another day?

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
