I was dreading yesterday. I had to drive three hours return just to drop something off. What a waste of time (& petrol!).
Then I changed my attitude. Instead of dreading the trip I turned it into an adventure. I kept Little Eco home from preschool and dragged her along. We did the drop-off and then visited Hunter Valley Zoo.
She especially liked the Kangaroos and Wallabies and I especially liked the Flying Foxes.
We also discovered that Deer will eat absolutely anything - including the hat off your head and the dress off your back.
Perhaps you could turn your next chore into an adventure?
