C. Chore that you hate: Folding laundry. I have no problems washing it, but folding and hanging and putting away is just a pain in my ass. Plus, most of our stuff is hanging so I have to HANG everything up. Whining. 

D. Dogs: When the boys are old enough to pick one out and help take care of it, I'd like to get one. And only if we live somewhere with a big yard.
