Not to beat a dead horse into the ground, but I totally agree with the other posts on this thread.
I will be the first to tell you...Testing is at times boring, very repetitive, and frustrating.
Look at it like a challenge. The developers gave you something that they think is bulletproof. It's your job to make swiss cheese out of it. You have to break it and knock the developers off their pedestal. That's what gets me through the frustrating times.
Look at your functional tests like weapons or tools of the trade. You run through your arsenal of tests trying to find problems.
If this doesn't appeal to you, then you may want to find another profession.

That is hilarious. LOL.
As far as a response to the original question, you could use an automation tool to perform the mundane tasks that you are "tired of doing".
Perhaps you should quit your job and find another profession so one of the hundreds of testing professionals that are currently out of work can replace you.
Probably you haven't explored the QA job deep enough yet. I haven't in your position before which is tired of testing. However, if you stay in testing industry for more than 2 years, you might like it. If you still not interested in testing, then the best alternative is to quit the QA job. QA can be as good as developer, for example you can contribute ideas in the design phase, and you can even debug. Things that you know, where developer might not.
