Is there any generic word describing household activities such as doing dishes and mopping floors? I feel the word chore implies a burden and am looking for something more natural.

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Seriously? Since when are doing dishes and mopping floors not a burden or chore? Might this be an exercise in denial? Housework, I agree, is a fine word. There's also job or task. But to find a word that's nice and casual is almost insulting to the doer, unless you're making an "activities" chart for yourself. I'm so curious.
