Let us chat… about life. I love talking about my boys but……
I HATE laundry.
Today is a post about how I extremely dislike laundry.
Conflicting because I LOVE the smell of clean clothes. Love, love, love when my sheets are clean smelling a bit like bleach and laundry detergent.
But I hate LAUNDRY.
No, I am not speaking in code… I am talking about actual laundry. Not someone’s “dirty laundry” but the stuff that piles up in your bathroom, laundry room or bedroom.
I will do anything.. clean toilets, dust, wash baseboards, do the dishes, take the Theodore to therapy a few times a week, run errands, wash the dogs, garden, go to Wal-Mart, etc etc ….
Yes……….Just to get out of the laundry.
I know some think laundry is easy or soothing, but I HATE it.
Everything about it makes me cringe, folding it, sorting it and putting it away is just too much.
I hate sorting it and ensuring all items are with like colors and similar fabrics… You know you don’t want to stick those towls with a lint seeking blouse.
I hate when clothes are not right side out. It is so tedious to go through every piece and fix each item.
I hate when I accidentally dry something that should have been hung….and well in my mind most of my clothes need hung dry. Sooo.. that is yet another step.
I hate when clothes are washed at night, left in the washer overnight and then smell….so those usually have to be washed again. I hate this.
I hate folding it because some of the pieces are too tiny.
I also hate folding it because some of the tiny pieces are wrinkly and then that makes me think about ironing… which I dislike MORE.
Instead of folding I try to hang everything and I DEFINITELY do not fold the unmentionables. Mine just get shoved in their specific drawer.
Thank the heavens above I have a husband that doesn’t mind the laundry. He knows I loathe laundry. He folds everything perfectly, he sorts it and sometimes I can even get him to put it away and………
Iron!! He will Iron anything anything ANYTHING!!
It is great!
I will sometimes HOLD OFF wearing it again if it needs ironed or I will try to give it a once over with my straightener…..
YES… you heard me right I use my STRAIGHTENER so I don’t have to iron.
It is fantastic and it works!!
Give it a try sometime.
However, I need to get better at laundry.
Well… because it piles up.
Then it becomes even more overwhelming.
Sometimes I bicker and it becomes a light argument. This happens when things are not found and what we want to wear is not clean.
If only I was wealthy enough to have a service………but I am not.
Even if I was I am not sure how I feel about a stranger washing my unmentionables.
So I need to get my butt in gear. I literally need to get over my annoyance.
I hope I am not the only person out there that dislikes this process this greatly. Please tell me I am not alone.
So my goal…..
Is to, Report to Duty in being better at laundry and all aspects of laundry. I need to have a more positive outlook. Luckily I don’t wash all my things all the time, but my husband washes everything all the time. P.s. I hate this too. I need to be more patient. I need to be more understanding of this treacherous task! Wish me luck or give me a shout out if you are in the same boat.
If so, good luck to you!!
Until Next Time,
Reporting to Duty
