The battle rages on....

Photobucket

Last week I had a tummy bug. I moaned on the couch for 4 days while my children literally sat on my head. It was outstanding, let me tell you. I didn't even look at the laundry room except to throw dirty clothes on top of clothes all last week. The pile was HUGE and I think that I heard it laugh at me twice when I walked by. My sweet husband washed all of it this weekend but left the folding for me.

Here is what is sitting in my living room this morning. In the battle between me and the laundry, I think that it's safe to say that the laundry has won.

If you listen closely, you might hear a battle cry. Oh wait...that's me crying. Anyone wanna come over and help me fold all of this?

I got caught up on all the laundry yesterday. I'm planning on making a list of how many times I do laundry each day this week, and also load/unload the dishwasher. Just so I REALLY know.

Too bad my daughter isn't available to help... she loves folding laundry, says it's therapeutic. She has actually been known to call her friends and ask if they want help with their laundry because she is stressed out and needed the therapy!

Did you secretly sneak into my house and take a picture of my laundry? Hmmmm?? Seriously, I feel your pain. :)

My hubs does not understand why I get behind in the laundry. What's with men thinking they can just leave 10 baskets of clean and now wrinkled clothes laying around in baskets. Wrinkled might as well be dirty to me. Good Luck girl!

I start mine on Sunday and usually finish Thursday or Friday. I am hoping Foxy will do quite a bit today while he is at home. But, we'll see.

Bossy Betty said...

I tell you, laundry starts breeding after awhile!

I'd help you fold!

I was sick last week too! Not with a tummy bug but with a cold. Oh I am so glad you are feeling better and I can so relate with the laundry being behind. But we'll get it done (cue Mommy warrior battle cry). Wish I could swing by and help you!

sending a hug your way! :)

Sand ... Man said...

LOL, I don't remember you coming to my home to take pictures of my to do piles!

I am glad that I am not the only one!!!!

I would offer to help, but I battle laundry every day too!!!

purseblogger said...

That is my house too. I feel your pain. I hate doing laundry! Folding and putting it away is worse. Wish I could help you...wish we could help each other. Good luck!

Good Luck!

I would love to be a great friend and offer to come help you with that....but it just isn't going to happen and I've accepted that! lol

I have a pile that looks very similar to yours that is laughing at me right now....I'm currently laughing back and blogging. I probably won't be laughing when my husband wants to wear clean clothes to work tomorrow!

I hate the washing, drying and ironing but there is something calming to me about folding laundry. As long as there isn't a tiny person pulling it apart as I go. Then...not so much.

Sue said...

Oh, I remember those laundry days. I used to have a different-colored basket for each kid, which I would fill almost daily and plunk down in their rooms to be (hopefully) put away.

Happy folding!

=)

Momma Fargo said...

How did you get a pic of my house?

Erin said...

I will fold, but I don't iron.

Sorry you were sick, sweets! Hope you are back to normal soon. Mommies don't get sick days and it sucks!

Katherine said...

Funny, my kids sit on my head when I lay on the couch too.

When I wash laundry, I think that maybe I don't mind it so much, and it's really not that bad of a chore...until I have to fold it.

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Oh my. That looks awful. I hate folding it too. Thanks goodness there is only two of us living here.

Ally said...

At least you have your own washer and dryer. Try dealing with running out of quarters, being too tired to hit the laundromat or everyone in the complex is doing wash tonight. I'm way behind myself.

Folding I don't mind...its the putting away that I procrastinate on.

MommyLovesStilettos said...

I totally hate laundry.

Heather of the EO said...

I would seriously fold your laundry if I lived by you. Yup, that's how weird I am. I enjoy other people's laundry.

Tracie said...

Ugh. Sorry you were sick. I spent all day yesterday doing laundry. I hate to put it away.
