I think that aside from caring for the boys, the task that consumes the most amount of time, is laundry. I try to wash and dry clothes on Mondays during the morning and afternoon, so that by 9Pm when "The Hills" is on, I can sit and fold them while watching Lauren's drama. Then during commercials, I try to put them away. This can be difficult because I have to sneak in the boys' rooms while they are sleeping and quietly hang clothes or put them in drawers.
I have some questions for all of you housewives and laundry professionals out there. How many times a week do you do laundry? Would you rather do a load a day, or spend one day doing several loads? Do you separate your clothes by colors and/or material? Do you put the majority of your garments in the dryer, or do you hang them up to dry? Do you fold your clothes in the laundry room, or do you take them in front of the T.V? Do your husbands help? Do you ever feel overwhelmed?
My best friend Angel McEneany loves to do laundry. If I remember correctly, I think it relaxes her and gives her a feeling of accomplishment. I, on the other hand, despise laundry. Other than cleaning bathrooms, it is my least favorite duty of being a housewife.
Any tips out there to make the mundane task of cleaning clothes more exciting? Any shortcuts? Any money saving tips?
When I go to put the empty baskets in the linen closet, there are inevitably clothes waiting on the floor already! I HATE LAUNDRY!!!
