I just got off the phone with a friend of mine. She mentioned she spent all day on her laundry and finally finished. I have to say... anyone who uses the word "finished" or any form of the word finished in the same sentence as the word "laundry" does NOT live on this planet! Or is it just me?
There is always and forever dirty laundry hanging around somewhere in your house. It might be hiding in the hamper (if you have one - to me it's just another place to grow dirty, moldy, clothing funk). It might be hiding underneath somebody's bed (HubbaDood). There may be a lonely dirty sock hiding behind the toilet. Who knows! There are plenty of places for dirty laundry to hide not to mention the soon-to-be dirty laundry you are currently wearing.
Then, once it's clean it has to be dried. Once it's dried it has to be folded or hung. Once it's folded it has to make it's way to four or five different rooms. Once it makes it to the proper room it has to make its way to the proper spot such as the closet or drawer. This could take DAYS!
Laundry is perpetual. It never ends. The amount may increase or decrease depending on the amount of people in your household. BUT... it NEVER ENDS!
So, next time you decide to mention to someone you "finished your laundry" - think of me. Go here to see my 2006 laundry post and picture of my laundry room - it hasn't changed much.
Have a great weekend and to all you Fathers - Have a GREAT Father's Day!
