I...........HATE.........laundry. There - I said it....what a load off my shoulders. No matter how hard I try and keep up with it, the laundry always gets ahead of me somehow.
I used to have a "laundry table" in the basement. Meaning that when I emptied the dryer, the clothes all went onto the table.
In the fall, hubby walled off the laundry area to make a playroom/laundry room so that I could contain the kids down there when I was doing laundry, in an effort to help make things easier and allow me to stay on top of it. Well, the kids LOVE it down there - but, they don't let me stay on top of the laundry. IF I happen to get it folded and put into a basket, Kyle comes along and dumps it all out in his attempt to help me.....and since I lost my laundry table when the renovation occurred, the clothes now sit on the floor (it's clean - promise) so I have a pile beside the washing machine that is dirty and needs to be washed, and a pile beside the dryer that is clean and needs to be folded and put away.
So - my secret is out. Now, I can be held accountable for staying on top of it. I am going to show you a picture of my laundry room - which I will take every Sunday and hopefully there will be some progress....so, here it is - please don't think too badly of me.........
|the "need to be cleaned pile" - pretty caught up|
|the "clean" pile - - needs A LOT of work|
