Stuttering Shell: I HATE LAUNDRY

Tuesday, May 12, 2009


There's a load in the washing machine waiting to be moved into the dryer, but the dryer is full because I had to wash my daughter's sheets. The laundry basket is full of clean clothes that are waiting to be folded and, currently, there are two baskets of clean, folded clothes sitting in my bedroom waiting to be put away.

Have I told you lately how much I hate doing the laundry?

I realize it's necessary to wear clean clothes, but come on, people, give me a break. I know we don't wear THAT much clothes throughout the week. It's OK to use the same towel a few times before putting it in the hamper. It's not OK to wear a different set of pajamas every night. Yes, it's important to wear clean underwear everyday, but if you took a bath the night before I don't think you really need to change your "unnawears" the very next morning while getting ready for school. Oh, and if you insist on making your OWN pile of dirty laundry (right next to the clothes hamper, I might add), then please make sure you turn everything right-side out & be sure to pull your underwear and your socks out of your pants instead of pulling them all off in one swoop. The same goes for your pockets - empty them! It's never fun to find out that a tube of Chapstick has melted all over the inside of the dryer or that the tissue you used on your runny nose was shredded in the wash and coated every dark article of clothing in the washing machine. But, if you happen to leave spare change, dollar bills or anything of value in your pockets then please consider it gone forever - finders, keepers!

I may wash, dry & fold the laundry, but it's your responsibility to help put the clothes away. If you can't do that, then why should I waste my time washing the clothes for you? I don't enjoy spending lots of time in the laundry room. No, I don't. There are a million other things I would rather do with my me. No wonder my mother showed me how to wash and dry my own laundry when I was in elementary school. Guess what kids...your time is coming...

In our house, it's not so much the kiddo causing laundry issues as the hubby. His momma should have taught him better!
