BEHIND!


Is there one item of clothing that we own, not in this pile?

Why do we have so much more laundry when the weather is nice?


Will I ever get caught up?

Am I now going to have to re-dry everything to de-wrinkle it?

Am I the only one?

How did this happen?

Ah, the never ending chore. Just did three loads myself. Good luck!

Tristan said...

Looks like my huge pile-o-laundry...that really never seems to go away. Or if some some magical reason it does go away, it doesn't last very long.

I feel your pain.

Have you seen the last post I did on my blog? Not only is it about how much I hate laundry, but the reason that the post is still the last one posted. This horrible thing keeps me busy....and like you my kids wear more outfits in the summer than the winter. Goodluck with this chore....definately not my favorite.

i am thoroughly convinced that if you add a baby boy to the family, the laundry pile quadruples! this has been so true for us. . . ever since oliver came our laundry has exploded!

Hannah said...

That pile looks vaguely familiar. Hmmm...maybe it is because I have one of my own. Ick. I hate laundry.

andrea said...

remind me sometime to share my post about laundry. in it, i debate the pros of joining a nudist colony, so as not to disrupt my clean laundry pile. i feel i made a compelling arguement. perhaps you will find your solution there.

Shally said...

I hear you!! I swear I am rummaging through piles of clean laundry on the floor daily just to find stuff to wear!!

I hate folding and putting clothes away.

Laundry is my WORST household chore. Zach has had to take over a lot of it just to get it caught up.

funny...it seems our loads have gone down since the weather got nicer. hooray for putting away the onsies, tights, socks, sweaters, heavy blankets...

Jenibelle said...

My children have outgrown things waiting for me to fold them.

I feel your pain.

Jennibelle's comment was GREAT!

I shouldn't even be blogging right now I am so behind on housework...one of my biggest problems is LAUNDRY! Blech...


I think I need to cut back on my blogging but, I can't seem to stop myself...I admire that you don't let it consume you...I need to find better balance in my life...

My eyeballs are twitching just looking at that picture. I'll be on the next flight out. It MUST be done.

Oh Lisa! Sigh...

I don't like Laudry either! I know I do more Laundry during the Summer than winter becasue My kids like to wait 'til the last minute to go potty! -- then the last second-- then.... well, it's wet NOW! :o)

ok, I'm going to share with you what helps me... I swear by it! -- I wear too many hats in my life right now, this works for me.

All 3 of my kids have their OWN dirty baskets in their rooms, when the Laudry basket gets full, I wash them, not all together though, becasue it's too hard & takes too long to sort through all the baskets when they are clean!

So all of my kids have thier own clean Laundry baskets & all the clean clothes go in it, that way if I don't have time to fold them right then & their, I know that all of, let's say, Logan's clothes are in this particular basket. I average about 2 loads of Laundry a DAY, excluding usually Sat. & NO Laundry on Sundays. Sorry, such a Long Comment. -- I swear this works for me! Good LUCK!
the NEVER ending CHORE!

I will be more than happy to join a nudist colony like what Andrea mentioned! lol :o)

Laurel said...

No you are not the only one. Sadly. And I don't want to do laundry. I want to lay around and read my book. Being an adult is just no fun sometimes.

gab said...

Got three loads "in line" right now. I have to just get it done in one day...otherwise laundry consumes my life!

jessica said...

I'm looking at my 5 piles of clothes laying on the laundry room floor right now. *sigh*

laundry is the one chore i absolutely hate. it's just so never-ending. & it is sooo easy to get behind. at this exact moment i think everything i own needs to be washed. & yet, i have no desire! if you find a magical solution, let me know.

Rick and Annie said...

it just happens!! my laundry looks the same!!

Grandma W. said...

This used to happen to me once in a while when the kids were growing up, but not just for Pappa and me.
The Weekes family comment sounds like a very good idea to me! They sure would be easy to fold and put away! My goodness, Honey, you only have three under the age of 4 1/2! I just don't understand!! Ha
ha! You are bound to get behind once in a while!
We love you!!!

That was my whole day yesterday...

I'm with Gab. I never put it off, one day and it's over, otherwise, I would be the most depressed girl on the planet.

Hollyween said...

That happens to me constantly. I'm always just picking at it and picking at it but never actually getting it DONE.

Hazen5 said...

I hate folding laundry!!!! That's why I only do laundry once a week.

Allison Weenig said...

I'm totally laughing 'cause last week I called my husband into the laundry room where WAY too much laundry was piled all around me and made him take a picture. It's the price I paid for leaving all of them and going to WC I guess. Loved meeting you at Blogapalooza :)
