I don't mind it. I know many people hate doing it, but it used to give me such a sense of accomplishment. At the end of the baskets of clothes to be washed, dried, folded and put away was an empty hamper.
Not. Anymore. Not here anyway.
I was folding it yesterday. I fold it on my bed and each family member has set area and I always put their socks, shirts etc. in the same spot.
I was thinking about how hard it has become to keep up with the laundry and then I had my "Duh/A ha!" moment....I'm doing laundry for 7 people! Of course there's more and it takes longer to fold. (Sometimes I scare myself. ;) )
Now you could say, have the kids help out. OK. In theory it would work, but I'm a bit of a control freak and I like my system and overall find it a relaxing task. I have built up to them putting away their own clothes, but the clothes get jammed in the drawers and end up wrinkly messes and then I need (for my own sanity) to iron it before they can wear it.
I am not complaining about the amount of laundry or my own desires to not have them look like they slept in their clothes. (It's bad enough that *C* and *E* have crazy hair that no comb or brush can tame.)
I am confessing that it has taken me far too long to realize that the laundry monster in my home, the one that breeds in my hamper, is not a result of me neglecting the Whirlpool. It's a numbers game.
So now, I will go and sort the laundry that has filled my hamper since I saw its bottom yesterday. Otherwise I will get behind.
Maybe I just need a larger hamper. ;)
