-calling them "tasks" because of the negative association with the word "chore".
-rewarding myself after chores with something fun.
-breaking them up into 5-10 minute periods of speed-cleaning throughout the week.
-making a weekly chore chart that's all color coded and fun
I'm still on the quest to make chores more bearable.
When I think about the witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series, and how they can use magic to do chores, I feel very jealous.
Even though I'm very magical, since I didn't go to Hogwarts, I haven't learned how to use magic to avoid or quickly finish chores.

Here is my super awesome and fun chore list: "Mundane Muggle Musts"
FontMesa for making this awesome font, "Magic School".
If you would like your own magical chore list that might make housework a little less sucky, here you go. (let me know if the link doesn't work)
Also, please tell me if you have discovered some way to make chores a less awful, or even *gasp* enjoyable experience.
