Haterade

Does anyone out there hate doing laundry? I really can't even begin to stand it. I actually enjoy the process of putting the wet, clean wash into the dryer, but the other stages are almost as bothersome to me as doing dishes. Perhaps it's because my laundry is almost always caked in mud from rugby, but I just don't want to see, touch, smell, or be involved in it once I've worn it.
This morning, Corey rightly called me a basket hog. I have all five of our laundry baskets full of either ancient clean, unfolded laundry or recent smelly dirty laundry. This is impeding his ability to wash his 22,000 pairs of boxer shorts.
My sister Sami and her husband, Richard, do a laundry share system. He carries it to the laundry room; she puts it in the dryer; he carries it upstairs; she puts it away. I could handle step 2! Why can't we live in the good old days with Laura Ingalls Wilder and only own two entire outfits that we wash by hand with a bar of lye and boiling water? I guess that wouldn't actually be any more enjoyable.
Someday, I'm going to be a successful enough writer to not need to do my own laundry. I will simply give all my clothes to Goodwill after one wearing.

Laundry has become so much less of a chore since I'm with Dee. She has a washer and dryer in her apartment and I take a load or two every time I go visit. It's saved me a ton of money and the hassle of lugging my wash to another building and remembering to get it on time lest someone dump it on one of the dirty folding tables in the communal laundry room.

This doesn't mean my clothes actually get folded, though. I actually dustmopped and swiffered my bedroom floor so I could dump a pile of clean clothes on it. Who cleans the floor to dump clothes on it instead of just folding the clothes and putting them away?! I'm absurd.

i use to hate doing laundry i would buy more clothing just so i would not have to do the laundry. until i gotta the mega washer & dryer in my wonderful looking laundry room. now i actually like spending time in that room. I evem iron my sheets..yes i said sheets in that room. i have made the room my own special place with pictures and my favorite things so hopfully one day you too will also enjoy doing laundry.

i hate doing laundry because i have to haul it back and forth outside to the building where the laundry room is. and then of course i don't like to fold, but i do it whilst watching tv and it's not so bad. but i will mind doing laundry much less once i have my own washer/dryer. won't you?

bragging time: since paul doesn't have a job yet, he has done my laundry lately. i haven't done my own laundry since january! all i've had to do was switch a load over once or twice, your fav part! maybe i'll send paul to pittsburg to do your laundry, but only after he's done mine!
