Whatever happened to the days when people would wear the same clothes several days in a row? Really! I say we revitalize that tradition!
It is not that I LOVE keeping up the house and all, but I LEAST LOVE household duties that involve too many steps to be completed. Grocery shopping and what I will present to you today as Exhibit L.
Seriously, I should have taken pics of my piles of laundry prior to going through the "process". You know. Gather. Sort. Wash. Dry. Fold. Put away. Iron. Repeat. However, I am going to share with you what haunts me EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!
Not only do you see my two ironing piles, but I threw in a few towels and rugs to be folded just for good measure!
I can get the other parts done in some kind of timely manner, but ironing, well here is the irony of it all.
I LOVE ironed clothes. It just makes me feel put together. And yes, I know about the stuff you can spray on clothes. I know about running them on the fluff cycle and then catching them fresh from the dryer. But honestly, I just don't do it. And if I used that method, our clothes would all be too small in about two laundry cycles!
And because I am a pile-maker/organizer, of course, separating them into respectable piles makes me feel like I have accomplished something. Some days I will even "straighten" the piles and consider it a good day! Curtis has resigned himself to ironing his 5 outfits for the week on Sunday. I basically live on the edge day to day.
About once a month, I will muster enough energy to just go for it. I spend several hours at least getting his pants, shorts, and shirts all ironed. Of course, by that time, I am too worn out to get to mine.
Well, it has been awhile, but since I know myself, the best I can do is promise to have it tackled by next Tuesday!
I do keep the room clean and neat otherwise.
I really have just come to appreciate my two piles as wonderful accent pieces!
p.s. you are in for a real treat with next week's tackle!
