Surrender to Laundry – You will Never Completely Catch Up!
I can remember when I didn’t have any children yet. It was just my husband I. Back then doing laundry was barely a chore. I could do it all in one day and not touch it again until seven days later. Oh those were the days.
Let’s not forget when I had my first son. I would soak every single burp cloth overnight to ensure all the stains came out. I hung dry all his clothes to keep them in tip top shape. What a crazy women I was.
Now, one to two loads a week have turned into about seven. I am lucky if I get the first load folded, let alone put away, before the next is ready to go. I use to think someday, when I was super duper organized and had my cleaning checklist ready, I would finally be able to catch up. One sweet lovely day I would NOT have one bit of laundry to do. I have since thrown in the towel.
